9. The NY Jets can sign Richie James

Yes, it's another member of that lackluster Giants receiving corps. Richie James was little more than a depth receiver/special teamer before he landed a golden opportunity with the Giants in 2022.

James finished with a career-high 57 catches for 569 yards and four touchdowns while also doubling as the team's punt returner. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the Jets targeted James as their Braxton Berrios replacement this offseason.

James has experience with Robert Saleh dating back to their days together in San Francisco, and he could fill that Berrios role for cheaper than the latter's $8.23 million cap hit in 2023.

8. The NY Jets can sign Robert Woods

The recently-released Robert Woods is looking for a new home this offseason after seeing his production drop significantly in the Titans' run-heavy offense last season.

Woods is just two years removed from putting together three consecutive 900-yard seasons with the Los Angeles Rams, and he was on pace for another in 2021 before suffering a midseason torn ACL.

Even at 30 years old (he turns 31 in April), I think Woods still has plenty left in the tank. He'd be a solid pickup for the Jets and a worthy replacement for Corey Davis, even if they're very different players.

7. The NY Jets can sign Parris Campbell

After three consecutive years of poor injury luck, Parris Campbell was finally healthy in 2022, and he went on to finish with new career highs in every receiving category, recording 63 catches for 623 yards and three touchdowns.

Campbell's NFL career has been marred by injury as he appeared in just 15 games over the first three seasons of his pro career. When he finally received the opportunity to play in 2022, however, he performed pretty well in a poor passing offense.

At just 25 years old, Campbell figures to have a pretty sizable free-agent market, although his injury history will be a red flag for many teams.
