Free agency can offer an exciting influx of talent for any team with cap space, but Jets fans badly want one position filled more than any other: wide receiver. Pass catchers will be the focal point of the Jets’ offseason, and rightfully so, as they have quite possibly the worst receiving corps in the entire league. The highlights of the group currently are Jeremy Kerley and David Nelson, two adequate pieces but nothing special. Santonio Holmes will surely be cut at some point this month, Stephen Hill has turned out to be a bust, and the rest of the wide receivers are bunch of misfits who offer little value to Gang Green. Fortunately for the Jets, GM John Idzik should have just shy of $50 million to play with, according to overthecap.com. That’s assuming Holmes, Mark Sanchez and Antonio Cromartie are cut. Idzik seems primed to also address the need at receiver through the draft, but that won’t stop the second-year GM from spending in free agency. After all, the Jets need more than one new wideout to improve their passing game.
