Do the New York Jets Sign a Veteran Offensive Weapon? The Fans Discuss

By Alan Schechter

It’s a little bit late, thanks to my unfortunate sickness, but now that I am back, let’s get to our newest edition of “Tweet Speak”.

You know the concept by now, I present you the topic, and you give me the tweets, and we include them in an article. This topic, presented a week ago, relates to the roster>

I presented you with the question as to whether or not the Jets can, or will, bring in another free agent weapon on the offensive side. Do we think John is keeping it status quo? Or is something coming? Here is what you all had to say:

@TheJetPress I say yes, I expect a WR at some point. A guy like Steve Breaston comes to mind

@TheJetPress I want T.O.

@TheJetPress I hope we cut Mark Sanchez and sign Mark Sanchez back. Then start Geno.

@TheJetPress A vet WR. Pleeeeeeeeeeease.

Well, aside from wanting TO, all thoughts that are understandable. They need another weapon, even if you figure counting in the return of Holmes as an upgrade. The quotes here were taken prior to the signing of Winslow, but it still is a request that is logical. John seems to be going the other way, hoping that guys coming into camp are good enough.

Hopefully he is right.
