The New york Jets need to acquire a viable third receiver for QB Mark Sanchez. It will be a miracle if Cotchery, Stuckey and Keller get through the entire season playing every play. Even if it means just giving them a breather.  It seems the coaching staff has little if any faith in the other three receivers on the roster. Clowney has been brilliant in the past two preseasons, but show absolutely nothing when the games count. Brad Smith is a one dimension player and Wallace Wright is a special teams ace. If any one of the top three go down the team is in real trouble. The Jets opened the season with four QBs on the roster giving them a head up on the competition to make a trade. Every year somebody has an injury at QB. The Jets will need to spread the defense sometime this season and their reserve WRs aren't going to scare anyone. At TE Justen Keller is on an island by himself. There is no option. Now is the time to strike a deal while we are still healthy. Once we have an injury the price will go way up.
