Now that the Jets have an open spot at wide receiver, many people are thinking free agents to replace the void. There are many talented players in the market such as T.J. Houshmandzadeh and many others. Or we could maybe trade for players such as Anquan Boldin is on the block
Also many people are thinking the draft as we Percy Harvin might be on the board when we draft the 17th selection.
But I am thinking do we have a player who could fill the void on the roster already? Here are two players who I think have the potential to do so.
I like Chansi as a wide receiver. He is a second-year veteran going into his third year, out of Clemson. He was drafted in the seventh round but after watching his highlight tape I knew he had potential.
He has great hands, good speed and is a good route runner. He sat out all of 2007 year though with an injury. But in 2008 he came out explosive being the first player ever to catch a touchdown in each of his three games.
He eventually racked up 360 yards on the year basically as a rookie.
David Clowney is another second-year veteran going into his third year. He spent 2007 on the Packers practice squad but then the Jets picked him up last year in free agency.
Another player with good hands and great quickness as he ran a 4.4 at the combine. He was amazing in the pre season racking up 160 receiving yards and two touchdowns in one game!
Eventually he was injured and sat out most of the year. He only racked up 1 catch but it was a very crucial first down catch, not to mention it was a one handed catch.
Some of you might be thinking, "Why don't I see Brad Smith on this list?"
Personally, I dont see Brad Smith as a starting wide receiver in the NFL. I like him more as a special plays kind of guy with the wildcat and reverses.
But I dont think he is good enough to be a starter.
All in all, I would rather the Jets fill the void with Ray Lewis or a Quarterback. But I would not mind having Anquan Boldin of Housh on the other side of Jerricho.
