He showed promise in 2011. He played well last year I felt until he took that awful hit. I know he has a connection to Sanjay Lal too. I'm not opposed signing him and bringing him in. He might be too similar to Hill and then it wouldn't be great for us. I'm not opposed to bringing him in for a cheap price. Some talent there.
No reason to not take a look, especially since Hill showed so little his rookie year. Hopeful he'll take a leap, but you never know.
If the Jets go into camp with Holmes, Hill, Kerley, Edwards, & Heyward-Bey (and White), I'll be confident that they'll have a solid rotation of 4 wideouts during the season. And maybe they hit on a later draft pick as well - I'm hoping the Jets don't use an early pick on a WR.
DHB was a horrible pick for where he was taken. He would be as decent pick up for us though. Can you guys not remember that we had to go out mid season and get jason freaking hill to start for us last year?
It is amazing to me how little Jet fans think of a 1st yr player who proved beyond the shadow of a doubt that he could get open at will against some quality NFL CBs.
Are you talking about Hill? If so, I'd have to disagree with the "open at will" claim. In year one, I saw a physically gifted guy who struggled to do just that on many occasions, and then failed to hold on to the ball when he did.
You can of course pin some of that on the QB, but I think Hill has to show us marked improvement in the two most important WR traits - route running and hands.
