Tonight is a big night for the New York Jets. No, not solely because they open the preseason, although that is a big part of it. The reason tonight is a big night is that we get to see a glimpse of how good our depth is at the wide receiver position. It has been widely discussed, the injury problems that they have had so far in camp. Santonio Holmes and Jeremy Kerley are inactive for tonight’s game. We get to see Stephen Hill, Patrick Turner, and Chaz Schilens show their skills.
Tonight will be a night that goes a long way in determining whether or not the Jets need to sign a veteran wide receiver to add to the depth. One name that has been on a lot of Jets fans’ lips is Minnesota WR Percy Harvin. Back in minicamp, he demanded a trade which the Vikings turned down. He seems now content to play out the season, but a lot of discussion has begun about whether Tanny and the Jets should inquire about this guy.
Well, let’s talk about it. Turn the page.
