We have talked at length about the Jets lack of depth at wide receiver. Whether the guys they have are going to pan out or not, remains to be seen. A veteran wouldn’t hurt.

Lee Evans was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars yesterday. The question is, should the Jets take a look?

He is 6’0″, 210 pounds, and only 31 years old. He certainly has gas left in the tank.

Here is some video on Lee from his days in Buffalo:

He had some good years in Buffalo, with his best year being 2006, with 82 catches, 1,292 yards and 8 TDs. He is a good target in the redzone as you can see in the tape.

Over his years in Buffalo (7), he recorded 43 TDs. He was a viable option in the red zone, and an able bodied receiver in general, averaging 53 catches per year.

However, I wouldn’t pay a lot for this guy, turn the page and I will tell you about why.
