Don Maynard (1960-72)
Spent one year with the Giants before embarking on Hall-of-Fame career with the Jets. Made four Pro Bowls and earned one All-Pro nod during his career, topping the 1,000-yard mark on five occasions (including a league-leading 1,434 yards in '67). His team career records of 627 receptions, 11,732 yards and 88 TD grabs still hold up over 35 years later. A no-brainer choice for the AFL All-time squad, Maynard was a 1987 enshrinee in Canton.
Wesley Walker (1977-89)
Speedy wideout was one of the top deep threats in NFL history. Racked up 438 catches for 8,306 yards and 71 TDs with the Jets, making the Pro Bowl twice. Earned All-Pro status in 1978 when he led the NFL with 1,169 receiving yards and an outstanding 24.4-yard average. Amazingly, Walker averaged over 20 yards-per-catch in eight of his 13 seasons.
Wayne Chrebet (1995-2005)
Perhaps the ultimate NFL Cinderella story, the undrafted Chrebet made the team as a walk-on, and earned a starting spot his rookie season. Over the next decade, he amassed 580 receptions for 7,365 yards and 41 TDs. Never a Pro-Bowler, the gutsy receiver became a fan favorite with his fearlessness, unselfish play, and sure-handed ability in 3rd-down situations. Retired as one of the most popular players in team history.
Al Toon (1985-92)
Gifted and graceful, Toon made three straight Pro Bowls ('86-'88) and was poised to become an all-time great. Unfortunately, he was hampered by chronic concussion injuries, which slowed his productivity and forced him into early retirement. Still managed 517 catches for 6,605 yards and 31 TDs during his eight seasons. He led the NFL with 93 receptions in 1988.
Laverneus Coles (2000-03, 2005-current)
The best Jets wideout of late, Coles is a reliable short-yardage target who can also burn opponents on deep patterns. Through the 2008 season, he's registered 459 receptions for 5,941 yards and 37 TDs for the Jets.
George Sauer (1965-70)
The scrappy Sauer teamed with Maynard to form pro football's most dangerous receiving duo in the late '60s. He made the Pro Bowl each year from '66 to '69, and was voted All-Pro in '67 and '68. Sauer quit football following the 1970 season, having accumulated 309 receptions for 4,965 yards and 28 scores. Another unsung hero of SB III, Sauer caught eight Namath passes for 133 yards in that historic contest.
Keyshawn Johnson (1996-99)
He may not have won many fans with his mouth or his attitude, but Johnson was one of the better receivers in the league while with the Jets. In just four years, he amassed 4,108 yards on 305 receptions, including 31 TD grabs. He reached the Pro Bowl in both '98 and '99.
