Yes, the Jets did make a move at wide receiver, but Clyde Gates? Who the heck is this guy? He has two NFL catches to his credit. Two! Depth is one thing, but wouldn’t it have made sense to get a proven wide receiver that we could be sure would help this team? It just doesn’t make any sense.
Furthermore, they don’t bring in any offensive linemen, but they change punters? Fine, TJ Conley is not consistent, he had to go. But Robert Malone? Matt McBriar was available, with eight seasons to his credit, and a per punt average of over 45 yards per punt. Robert Malone had a decent rookie season in 2010, but was basically out of the league in 2011, with only 5 punts to his credit. He couldn’t make the San Diego Chargers, but he is going to make the Jets, where field position is going to be of the utmost importance? Another curious move.
Some mini-draft, huh?
