He believes that if he stays healthy, he will be able to contribute.
Schilens could factor heavily into the Jets’ offensive plans in 2012 thanks to a thin receiving corps after Holmes. Plaxico Burress is not expected to return, and Jeremy Kerley is primarily a slot receiver. Logan Payne, Patrick Turner, and Dexter Jackson are other receivers that could be in the mix. Coach Lal also told him how great the Jets organization is, and that piqued Schilens’ interest.
As I have said before, he should get every opportunity to compete for the number 2 wide receiver position. Watch film on this guy, he can play if he can stay healthy.
