The NY Jets could have the worst group of wide receivers in the NFL, but the front office is looking to change that with a free agent signing or two.
Several football experts are predicting the team could use the upcoming Draft to add talent and depth to the position, but Seth Walder of The New York Daily News has reported the Jets are looking to make a splash when the free agent signing period begins next weeks and even suggests former NY Giants wide out Hakeem Nicks is a good option.
With young quarterback Geno Smith now entering his second year in the league, finding some play makers to help his growth and confidence is a priority and the team has nearly $30 million under the salary cap to work with this off-season.
The 26-year-old had 27 touchdowns in his first four seasons in the NFL, but failed to find the end zone last year. Nicks did have nearly 900 yards in receiving and has averaged 15 yards per reception in his career, numbers that would put him as the top talent on the NY Jets and a receiver Smith and the offense could use to put up better numbers then the team did last year, possibly propelling this franchise into the playoffs in 2014.
