Let’s get back to playing GM everybody. So far, we have taken a look at the running back position and the quarterback position. We start this week looking at the WR position:

SANTONIO HOLMES: Santonio had a season that was cut down far too early, thanks to a Lisfranc injury to his foot. No, I don’t agree with coach Ryan that Tone was on a pace to 90 plus catches and over 1200 yards, but he was playing well. Some have said that the Jets should look into trading him, to move along the process of rebuilding. As I have said with Revis, it’s not a bad idea, because if the Jets could get a lot of draft picks, it would be worth it. Santonio makes a lot of money, so letting him go would be difficult. What team is going to want a receiver coming off of injury too? So, for these reasons, I believe that Santonio Holmes will be……….

BACK FOR MORE

BRAYLON EDWARDS: Here is a guy that, once the Jets bring in a general manager, should be a no-brainer. While it’s true that he had injury problems after leaving the Jets, Braylon seemed to hit the rewind button on his career the moment he put a Jets uniform back on. After recording 1 catch for over half a season in Seattle, he recorded 10 catches for 125 yards in just 3 games back in NY. He clearly still has ability, and he wants to be here. Braylon Edwards should be………………

BACK FOR MORE

CLYDE GATES: Here is a guy that came in and did a nice job as an injury replacement. He put up 16 catches for 224 yards, being active for 11 games in 2012. When healthy, he was a pretty sure-handed target for Mark Sanchez. However, he wasn’t great. He was also part of the group that had no ability to achieve separation against any defender. If you bring him back, you are stuck with a guy that has decent hands, but otherwise has a pretty low ceiling. Therefore, Clyde Gates should be……
