We have talked more than once about the fact that Mike Tannenbaum has work to do. So far, we have spent a great deal of time talking about the need for a veteran running back. This is still a need, in my opinion, as we have talked about bringing in someone to at least help with blitz pickups.
Well, there is a more pressing issue at this time. Santonio Holmes is not back in the lineup yet after his rib injury. Jeremy Kerley, although improving, doesn’t appear to be ready to come back. Now, Stephen Hill gets injured in practice yesterday. The seriousness may still be in question, but any time a receiver has a finger that he can’t bend, and it is wrapped in heavy tape, that’s bad.
The Jets need a veteran wide receiver, and need one urgently. Even when they are healthy, another proven veteran won’t hurt. There are some available, and I will talk about some names on the next page.
