6. The NY Jets could sign WR Josh Reynolds

The free-agent wide receiver market was quiet on day one, but that's expected to pick up as early as today. One of the more under-the-radar targets for the Jets could be Josh Reynolds.

A former fourth-round pick of the Los Angeles Rams, Reynolds carved out a nice role for himself in the Detroit Lions' offense over the last two seasons. He finished the 2023 season with 40 catches for 608 yards and a career-high five touchdowns.

Reynolds is a shifty, reliable WR3/WR4 who was a frequent target for Jared Goff on third and fourth down last season. He's a quality route-runner who lacks the elite physical traits to probably ever be anything more than a third option in an NFL.

Reynolds shouldn't necessarily be the Jets' top wide receiver option, but he could provide value as a supplementary addition. This would be a good value signing for Gang Green.

5. The NY Jets could sign WR Curtis Samuel

If the Jets are looking for a true slot receiver/gadget player, Curtis Samuel might be their best option. The former Ohio State star was the model of consistency over the last two seasons in Washington, amassing over 60 catches and over 600 yards in 2022 and 2023.

Samuel is at his best when utilized as a Swiss Army knife on offense. He thrives with the ball in his hands, whether as a ball carrier or a YAC receiver. That's been his primary calling card in the NFL.

The New York native was credited with only two drops on 91 targets in 2023 and was a highly efficient target, hauling in over 70 percent of passes thrown his way.

Samuel is a quality NFL slot receiver who would be an asset to any NFL offense. The Jets could use a player like him in their receiving corps.
