Jets should target Michael Floyd in free agency
By Jason Rodriguez
With the NFL season officially being done, the New York Jets need to add some more offensive weapons to the mix. They should set their sights on wide receiver Michael Floyd in free agency.
The offense for the New York Jets was very stagnant and with John Morton officially now their offensive coordinator, they are heading in the right direction. One player that is on the Jets radar is wide receiver, Michael Floyd. If the Jets decide to use an offense with multiple receivers than Floyd is a good idea. He will help in the passing game to give whoever is under center multiple options to keep those chains moving
In an article written by SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano, he makes a very valid point: “He has the potential and he comes as a big target on the outside of the passing game”. He also states “He comes with the baggage for the trouble he has gotten into but is worth the chance”.
Floyd’s best year so far in his career was back in 2013, he totaled 63 catches, 1,041 total passing yards, and five touchdowns. He could help with the passing game and round out a veteran crew that features Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall.

Morton is a well established high scoring offensive coordinator and will look to bring that same mentality with the Jets. They could see a big difference in offense with Morton because he averaged 30 points per game as a coordinator early on in his career. For this to be accomplished, they need to add more playmakers on offense as Floyd would be a smart acquisition to make.
Floyd has been a very good player for the teams he has played for in his career in the NFL. With the Jets struggling on offense, would be an inexpensive pickup that could produce right away.
Overall, Floyd could be a good signing for a team that is in a rebuilding stage. If the Jets could land him on an inexpensive one-year deal, it would make sense in the grand scheme of things.
