Major need especially with the jets possibly releasing Holmes in the end of the season. We should trade for bowe and have a nasty receiving corp with kerley and hill. I feel like Sanchez isn't getting any help and the jets organization is giving up

Because i think its fair to say that we need much more than a reciever right now even as good as Bowe is.

We need to reload in FA qnd the draft next year. Pointless trading precious picks away at this moment in time IMO.

We should try and see what we can get for Braylon, he hasn't been playing much in Seattle from the looks of it. It's a new offense, but he had chemistry with Sanchez and honestly he would be better for our team than any other FAs would be. It won't happen, but I can still hope.

Trading for big time players (Cromartie, Holmes, Edwards) got us into this mess. Let's rebuild through the draft.

I agree. I think there will be a lot of quality receivers available in free agencies next year. If we end up with a top 5 pick I'd love to go qb, rb and OLB in first three rounds and pick up the wr in free agency. With Wilson in for Revis I don't see us making the play offs even with a top wr so why waste the draft picks.

Though those trades were a big part in getting us to the AFC Championship Game. Cromartie has been a great aquisition.

I want us to build through the draft, but those FA moves & trades did help a lot. It depends on the talent & character of the guy (Holmes) . If we do decide to sign someone, I would take a shot at someone like Ramses Barden next year or a good character guy like Jennings who could be effective and mentor the young guys behind him. If they hit the market. Draft wise I like Allen, Woods, Williams, and Davis.

I'll take a young WR through the draft please, players that hit the FA market ALL GET OVER PAID eventually, build through the draft and re-sign your guys dont - around with them year after year, if they wanna play grab [inappropriate/removed] then trade em, the only valuable players you dont trade are

QB
LT
C
Pass Rusher
Revis

everyone else is replaceable

I agree with you. I was saying if we were to sign one, those are who I would check out. Im actually starting to hope our WR core look good without holmes or we draft one next year. It might make the front office more comfortable with moving holmes in the near future.

Real life isn't like Madden, there are so many factors that there are few opportunities to acquire a big name WR

I'm tired of the Jets signing veterans that have little time left in FA. We need to rebuild, not reload.
