The Jets are in dire need of weapons for Mark Sanchez, despite the assertion of Mike Tannenbaum to the contrary. It’s been discussed at length, there are weapons with potential, but not a lot of weapons that Mark Sanchez can count on. He needs proven, reliable weapons at his disposal.

Josh Baker was going to be a very potent weapon as the tight end/H-back position, before he season was cut short during the third game of the preseason. Cut day has come and gone, and there is a guy out there that could replace Baker, and do a more than capable job. Why? Because he has a history of doing a high caliber job. That guy is Kellen Winslow Jr.

Here is some video from the time he spent in Tampa Bay:

He is fast, has great hands. He is clearly an effective offensive weapon.

Winslow might not be Jimmy Graham height, but he still is a big target at 6’4″, which is a threat to any defense, especially in the redzone. He is still in his prime at 29 years old.
