The New York Jets' wide receiver situation is shaping up but there are still a lot of question marks. Santonio Holmes widely regarded as the best on the Jets roster shows no sign of an imminent return from Lisfranc surgery. Braylon Edwards has been solid but was signed late and is on a pitch count.

And then there is second-year pro Stephen Hill who declared on Wednesday that he was ready to compete for the top spot in the rotation.

"Honestly I feel like I can be that guy even if [Holmes] is out there on the field" Hill said. "That's just my competitiveness that's what I feel like I can do. If I can be that No. 1 wide receiver that's what I'm striving for. He's definitely going to make that comeback sooner or later but other than that I'm definitely striving to be that No. 1 guy."

That's quite a statement especially when you consider Hill is perhaps best known for a costly drop against the New England Patriots in October of his rookie year. There are those who look back at that moment and wonder if the drop changed the trajectory of the entire season. Hill is aware it will be brought up in Week 2 as the Jets prepare to meet the Patriots again but he doesn't think drops are what define his short career.

"I only dropped three balls last year that's what I know" Hill said. "I look back at the film because I watch film every day. However that goes that's people's opinions that's not facts."
