Drops, injuries and lack of big-time playmakers have haunted New York's receiving corps in recent years, and the unit enters this upcoming year weaker than ever.
Santonio Holmes, the team's No. 1 wideout and only true proven weapon, is a question mark to begin the regular season. No. 2 receiver Stephen Hill still hasn't overcome the drops and injuries that derailed his rookie season.
Clyde Gates and Ben Obomanu, while solid NFL players, cannot be relied upon as anything more than decent backups.
As for tight end, the loss of Dustin Keller could sting badly.
Jeff Cumberland showed promise last season, but he isn't ready to be a staple in the team's offense, and Kellen Winslow is a long way away from returning to his Pro Bowl form, as he recorded just one catch last season.
Unless unproven players such as Jordan White and Hayden Smith step up big time, the receiving corps will compete with quarterback as the Jets' weakest positional unit.
