According to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com, the Jets won’t be a factor in the DeSean Jackson sweepstakes.
Unless they pull a 180, the Jets won’t be a factor in the DeSean Jackson sweepstakes — a smart move. He’s not a fit for them. They held internal discussions on Jackson, with offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg giving his blessing. Mornhinweg, who coached him with the Philadelphia Eagles, told people in the organization that Jackson — known for his bad-boy reputation — wouldn’t be a problem in the locker room. That apparently wasn’t enough to sway Idzik, who reportedly hadn’t reached out to Jackson’s agent as of Saturday. Jackson is scheduled to visit Monday with the Washington Redskins. The Oakland Raiders might be interested as well.
Do the Jets really think they’re gong to get by with their current crop of receivers?
I don’t care if the Jets draft Sammy Watkins, they still another big-time target for either Geno Smith or Michael Vick to throw to.
