Plaxico may have been a solid red-zone target, but he was beyond horrible inside the 20's. I guess being 34-35 years old after years away from the game of football caught up to him/got the best of him.
With all that said, I'm glad he's gone in replace of a 6'4 WR talent in Stephen Hill ala a 21 year old kid who runs a 4.3 forty flat with top of the line jumping ability. At least we'll have an explosive athlete opposite of Holmes, an athlete in Hill who can take the top off the defense due to his overall size and speed.
I haven't been this high on a rookie WR since the draftings of Laveranues Coles (2000) and Santana Moss (2001). I'm an FSU fan but enjoy following all Florida college football (some of the best around), and when the Jets landed Coles and Moss? I was thrilled. I think we laded something special in this Hill kid. Both Calvin Johnson and Demaryius Thomas went to Georgia Tech. This school/program seems to produce/recruit 6'3+ WR's with top of the line speed. No wonder why Georgia Tech used Stephen Hill as their #1 WR. Hill (I believe) led the nation in average yards per reception; a true speed burning deep threat.
