It's no secret the New York Jets desperately need to add big-play potential to a defunct group of so-called playmakers on offense this offseason.
The Jets will be rampantly active during free agency, when general manager John Idzik Jr. will aggressively attempt to acquire at least two capable receivers. The open market won't be flush with talent, but it offers several players with big-play potential nonetheless.

The Jets' inefficient passing game ranked 31st in the NFL in 2013. Failing to increase their playmaking talent at receiver could prove detrimental to their ability to earn a playoff berth next season.
