    I think players like Gates is a solid #4 or #5 WR that the team thinks adds depth.

    Then the sleepers, Rogers, Davis, Spadola have some promise but are unknowns.
    Im sorry but I disagree. Our receiving corps is weak. Outside of a healthy Holmes (who would be a quality #2 receiver) none of our receivers would be starting on any team outside of maybe bottomfeedrs like Jax, Oakland or Cleveland. Kerley is a nice receiver, best suited for the slot but is not a go to guy yet. I like Rogers and Spadola but there is a reason they went undrafted. Id love to catch lightening in a bottle with one of these UDFA receivers like we did with Chrebet, but reality dictates this is unlikely. These guys are more likely to be the next Chas Gessner, Logan Payne, Royce Pollard, Marcus Henry.

    Any of those receivers who have Geno.Smith throwing to them Week 1 will be a million miles better than if they had Marky Buttfumbles throwing to them

    Nothing has really changed from the wrs we had last season so seems like a good move.

    This is simply Idzy being Idzy. He methodically investigated all possibilities (Sims-Walker, Collie, Robinson, et al) and then pulled the trigger on the best move for the Jets. I don't think we've added a Pro Bowl player, but we did add the best option for this team at a position of need, given the available options.

    Rome wasn't built in one offseason, but Rome is better today than it was yesterday.

    Vivat Barba!

    Nope Idzik doesn't like him. He bad mouthed the Jets front office, and he likes Sanchez. I have been told these things, and more, countless times, by highly respected SOJFs right here on JI. Not gonna happen.

    We're already pretty sure Holmes is missing some games. How's it going with Cruz, and Hakeem?

    Nothing official, yet. I'm assuming it's taking this long to find out anything because they're getting the contract done.

    Once this becomes official, I'm changing my "status" from "Re-sign me, Dammit" to "ABOUT FRIGGIN' TIME!"

    If you never watch football, yes, he's better than a healthy Holmes.

    Holmes is better at Football and being a Douchebag than Braylon.

    I agree.
