    Are there any good deep-threat WR's in FA?

    Does anyone know of any good deep threat receivers that will be on the market? I don't think we need a guy like Owens, just a guy with speed that can rotate with Cotchery in the slot.

    I don't think so. I think that the draft is the way to go.

    Untouchable, check your PMs.

    Here's a post I wrote yesterday.

    This kid has incredible hands and very good speed. We're seriously lacking a playmaker on offense -- he's young and he would be affordable. Pair him with Coles and you've got a nice tandem: good possesion receiver who will fight for the ball (Coles), and the deep threat that must be accounted for by the defense on every play (Lloyd).

    The question is, can we afford him?

    I would also say Brandon Lloyd or David Givens, even though he is not as big a deep threat as Lloyd. He is familiar with Mangini and does step up in big games.

    I think that Joe Jurevicius should be looked at as well by the Jets.

    Joe Jurevicius isn't going anywhere. The Seahawks have a ton of cap room. There were some Givens rumors, however...

    Reggie Wayne. But we don't have that kind of cap space.

    Not a deep threat.

    Go draft

    TO would be great if it weren't for two reasons :
    1. The Jets can't afford him.
    2. His attitude would not be accepted within the organization.

    The guy is great over the middle and would keep the defense honest.
    He would have an instant impact on the offense but 1. and 2. stand in the way.

    Pats may release Bethel Johnson. He's got speed and hands, but he hasn't matured. He's a bit of a head case, but he'll come cheap.

    I read on ESPN that the Broncos are showing some interest in Terrell Owens, if so with Ashley Lelei? and Rod Smith to team him with I would look for Darius Watts to be released. Watts is a former 2nd round choice from 2004 for the Broncos out of Marshall University. He played very little this year with only two receptions and did not play at all the last half of the year (maybe injured?) An underachiever in Denver who, if not injured, could provide a down the field threat. He used to look pretty good catching those bombs from Leftwich at MU.

    How about Jonathan Carter. We could even use him as our punt returner.

    I really love the idea of signing Brandon Lloyd, our two BIG FA targets should be him and Bentley from NO. The vet QB depends on what we plan to do with the draft.

    Brandon Lloyd is very exciting and has the speed we lack. He also has the kind of hands that made me famous years ago. Very few have shown that kind of God-given talent since (T.O., Randy Moss, etc). We should grab him.

    This Lloyd kid has zero heart!!! ZERO!!! There was a great post about this on another thread, kid had alligator arms, I'm talking BABY alligator arms on a quick slant on the 5 yard line at the end of a close game. He's got talent but his attitude is nothing we should want.

    FA WR's scare me. How many times do you see a WR get a fat contract and then bust. Vice versa how many busts become stars on a new team. The best way to go is take as many prospect with potential as possible. Give them a real opportunity to show, and hope they pan out. Galloway, Keyshawn, Peerless the price is wrong, and many more. Also draft picks are risky. Peter Warrik was light years better than Coles was supposed to be. Darrell Jackson was way better tan Chad Johnson. Steve Smith, couldn't hold, David Terrel's or Koren Robinson's jock. Receiver's are always a crap shoot.

    What about a guy like Randel-El? He is quick enough to be a deep threat, but also enough of an athlete to provide elements of trickery to a traditionally bland offense.
