The NY Jets might be making some pretty significant changes to their wide receiver room this offseason. The team is expected to move on from Corey Davis while Braxton Berrios could join him as a cap casualty.

Even Elijah Moore's name continues to be mentioned in trade rumors. That means the Jets are going to have to overhaul a portion of their receiving corps within the coming months. Of course, the Jets are no strangers to that.

Over the last two seasons, the Jets have completely reshaped their wide receiver depth chart. The Jets' top two wide receivers in 2020 were Jamison Crowder and Breshad Perriman. Neither remains with the team.

The Jets did their best to land a superstar wide receiver last offseason, exploring the trade markets for players like Tyreek Hill, A.J. Brown, and Deebo Samuel before settling on Garrett Wilson in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Wilson is the only wide receiver on the Jets' roster guaranteed to have a role in 2023, although it's probably unlikely that Moore is moved. The Jets could turn to the NFL Draft again in search of another wide receiver, or they could explore the free-agent market.

This year's crop of free-agent wide receivers is probably one of the weaker groups we've seen in recent years, but that doesn't mean the Jets can't still find some value.

Let's take a look at 12 wide receivers the Jets could sign in free agency this offseason. Note that this only includes current free agents, so players like Michael Thomas who could be released are not included.
