With all the talk about whether the competition is open or closed at quarterback, the biggest battle on the Jets roster has been overlooked.
Who is going to be this team’s No. 2 wide receiver?
The Jets’ offense was 31st in passing offense last year, and it was not all Geno Smith’s fault. The Jets went through a bunch of wide receivers, most of whom were playing above the role they should have been in.
General manager John Idzik addressed the wide receiver position in free agency with his only big-ticket purchase, signing Eric Decker to a five-year, $36.25 million contract. That addressed the No. 1 wide receiver, but the offense needs someone to emerge opposite Decker if it truly is going to improve.
