Thread: Jets Kicking Tires on Spare Parts at WR Position

  1. #61
    I will only say this :


    This offseason for Idzik, IMO, was a Solid B+.


    Finally re-signing Braylon would make it a flat-out 'A'.



    As my avy says : "RE-SIGN ME, DAMMIT!!!"




    (oh and why not also sign Barden IN ADDITION to Bray? It's not like either are going to command much money)

    Never said he doesn't make spectacular catches. Never said I didn't like him. I'm just saying that calling someone as soft as him a "soldier" is absurd. I don't think he was tackled once last season (unless you consider a defender gently touching him while he lies on the ground in the fetal position a "tackle").

    I like Edwards also but hes not some magic potion that will make the Jets that much better. Edwards is on the downside of his career. Hes probably good for 10-12 games with 2-3 catches per game. 40 catches for 500 yrds and 4 TDs would be a nice season for him -its better than what hes done the past 2 seasons with better teams.

    I'd take Edwards and Lloyd..the WCO O is not just running...there is a good mixture of passing...we have the Running backs..the jets O can't be fixed over night....we are looking to get this team better in 2013....in 2014 the Jets with 12 picks and cash will be like kids in a candy store...bringing back Edwards and adding llyod to the current corp makes them pretty decent.

Both would provide experience at one of the Jets' weakest positions and, thanks to a lack of interest from other teams, would likely come at relatively cheap prices.

    Jets said holmes will be ready for the season...not for training camp....even with holmes, bringing back Edwards and also Lloyd would be awesome.

    They are saying Holmes not going to be ready for part of season something I didn't know

    just because we stacked up on RB's does not mean this is a running team...have you seen MM's offense before? there is a lot of passing....Jets did the smart thing because you cannot have too many RB's and we are now solid at that position which includes depth and backs who brings different tools to the table.

    The real question here is: how do Brandon Lloyd, Braylon Edwards, Josh Cribbs, Ramses Barden stack up against the later draft round WR's.... in other words, are we better served having gone the route of mid range veterans at the position. Here were the WR picks from the 4th to the 7th - which ones will contribute more to their team this year than the above?:

    Ace Sanders Jaguars
    Josh Boyce Patriots
    Chris Harper Seahawks
    Quinton Patton 49ers
    Denard Robinson Jaguars
    Kenny Stills Saints
    Tavarres King Broncos
    Corey Fuller Lions
    Ryan Swope Cardinals
    Justin Brown Steelers
    Alan Bonner Texans
    Cobi Hamilton Bengals

    For me, I would have rather taken Harper or Patton in the 4th than trading for Ivory. Felt much better giving up a 5th round pick for Ivory. I thought there was still some really good value left in the 4th.

    thing is the jets needed a power rb more than a decent wr and ivory was better value than those wrs. the jets can sign FA wrs who can do what those guys can and you have to assume/believe they're going to address wr and te early in next year's draft. at least the jets appear to have 'fixed' the rushing situation. if they had used that 4th rounder on one of those wrs, the impact this season wouldn't likely be as much. not to say these wrs aren't good though.

    I get the reason for the trade, and I like Ivory, I just thought a 4th was a little rich to give up. I really liked Harper, he will flourish in Seattle.

    a 4th rounder for a starting rb, someone who is young and proved he can get it done? sure he gets nicked up and a 5th would have been better but 4th round is probably fair value.

    That was my thinking too... Once past the 4th round, there isn't anybody in this group of draft picks that jumps out. We'll have the picks next year and some stability in the core to build on. TE was the real sacrifice in this draft. We're pretty weak there and there aren't easy fixes available.

    @MMehtaNYDN: WR Braylon Edwards makes a lot of sense for the Jets. Affordable veteran. However, Edwards hasn't heard from #NYJ yet.

    We want Bray.

    Yes I have seen MM's offense before. He tailored his scheme by what the opposition is weakest at. In other words, if a team can not stop the run, guess what? He runs! Ditto passing. He seems to favor short to intermediate passing. He also favors that the receivers get YAC.

    I'd also like Braylon Edwards for the Jets. He blocks well in the run game as well as the passing game! His work blocking for other receivers is well known.

    Talk about OVERRATED...

    The guy is a glorified Kick-returner.

    That's why I said to grab Braylon *AND* Barden(or Lloyd) so we can TWO potential starters contributing.

    .
    I'm guessing maybe they want the draft contracts worked out first to see how much they can offer any more FA's.
