    Post New Story: Idzik Goes Receiver Shopping

    When John Idzik took over the Jets everyone knew he had a lot of work to do to turn this team around. When free agency started Idzik made a few under the radar/affordable signings (Goodson, Barnes, Garay, Colon), but it was the amount of players he let walk (not even really attempting to re-sign) that grab the media's attention. Then came the Revis trade and the draft and even though most people in the business were praising Idzik for his hefty draft haul (netting himself four likely week one starters Milliner, Richardson, Winters and trading for the Saints Chris Ivory...

    I like that. I would like a couple of hungry guys with chips on their shoulders to help teach youngster.

    Brandon Lloyd hasn't had less than 70 receptions, 900 yards and 4 TDs in the past three seasons. Not sure what you would consider consistency, but that isn't a bad rap.

    I always thought Braylon Edwards played really hard for the Jets. He played big, fast and was a threat anywhere on the field..

    to me. resigning him at a reasonable price would be good insurance.. They guy will block, be a red zone target and believe he can still go deep.....


    I like Cribbs versatility but he is not a true WR... brand lloyd.. ugh. not a real fan... Bardon is not starter material

    Really? Most inconsistent WR in the history of the NFL? And Braylon Edwards, Josh Cribbs and Rames Barden are somehow better options? Really?

    Edwards is easily just as inconsistent, especially health-wise, maybe Cribbs & Barden aren't so much inconsistent as they are just poor receivers. I said Lloyd was the best of the four, I didn't put him near the top WRs in the league though. Yeah I said you could make an argument he'd be the best WR on the roster immediately, I didn't say he would be, just that you could make that argument.

    Holmes is still hurt (just said he couldn't play if they had a game this week), Hill said the media pressure got to him last year and if you think he's more developed than Lloyd, well I don't know what else to tell you other than calm down, let's see Hill grasp the offense first.

    Kerley is great at what he does, but he's much more limited and isn't an outside WR like Lloyd, Lloyd offers more as a receiver.

    It's really not that hard of a concept to grasp, but then again I didn't take into account your expert scouting report saying he's the most inconsistent receiver in the history of the league. Maybe I should re-think my position after such a factual breakdown, then again probably not.

    Lloyd would be a good pickup but similar size/skillset to Holmes. Cribbs is interesting as an all-around threat. Braylon has had success before and would be cheap. Barden would be a foolish addition, he never caught on with the Giants even when their WR corps had all sorts of injuries.
