    Jets claim WR Marcus Davis off waivers from Giants

    RT @RavensInsider: Jets assigned WR Marcus Davis off waivers from Giants


    Interesting prospect.

    6-3 233 WR from Virginia Tech
    Ran 4.47 at combine. Was VERY inconsistent in college, frustrated a lot of people. Can stretch the field, didnt seem to want to block much so he wasnt on the field a lot.

    Good prospect and worth a look, but if a kid with those measurables couldn't even make it through minicamp without being released, most likely nothing there.

    I agree totally. The jets are just an orginzation filled with players that were once scrubs and we turned into gold.

    They were probably just looking to get bigger and faster with their UDFA lottery ball.

    Marcus Davis is 6'3, 233 lbs, 4.47 40
    Antavious Wilson is 6'1, 198 lbs, 4.70 40

    Wilson was released to make room.

    Is it true that this guy's former roommate is the cousin of the assistant football coach at David Clowney's high school?

    If so, this could be a good sign! The stars are aligning and I have a good feeling about this.

    It's BleacherReport so it's terrible but I assume this kid is more athlete than WR. He was benched at one point in college for not blocking.

    A lot upside

    The New York Jets claimed free-agent wide receiver Marcus Davis off waivers from the New York Giants and released wide receiver Antavious Wilson on Tuesday.
    Davis was released by the Giants on Sunday after the team's rookie minicamp. He was undrafted out of Virginia Tech after catching 105 passes for 1,827 yards and 13 touchdowns in four collegiate season, including a team-leading 51 receptions for 953 yards and five TDs last year.
    Wilson also was passed over in the 2013 draft and signed with the Jets as a free agent. At Marshall, Wilson had 69 career receptions for 741 yards and nine touchdowns.

    I like that we're going for potential, and quantity. This guy probably will not be good, but if just a couple of these low risk, high ceiling guys work out it will be well worth all the rocks we looked under.

    "What does that make us?"


    "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING."
