    Hope he brings his girlfriend with him to enhance the flight crew.

    He's actually a decent player - a big target for Geno.

    If he's totally healthy, then I'd like to see him stick to the roster even if/when Holmes and Hill return.

    A physical, young 6'5 receiver who is definitely a better #4 option than Gates or Obomanu.

    Hopefully he is healthy. He showed some potential with 61 catches in 2011, followed by 2 last season (he only played 1 game).

    Agreed. Much needed redzone target and actually catches the ball with his hands.

    Leon Johnson had cadaver parts for his injured Knee but his career was still dead after the surgery..

    HUGE blow.
    Holmes was starting to look great again and Geno was comfortable with him.

    This is awful news.

    I don't know a lot about him. With that size and those times (and he can catch) why is is free?

    He tore a ligament in his knee last year, he wasnt healthy enough to start training camp so he remained unsigned. He is finally healthy enough to play again and he worked out for a few teams last week.

    If Nelson knee is healthy he is a good WR for the jets , he gives them a big target with good hands and a guy we can keep on the team for a long time.

    Lets hope that knee is healthy.
