3. The NY Jets can sign Jakobi Meyers

This is likely the big three of free-agent wide receivers this offseason. Any of these three names would realistically be upgrades over what the Jets have in Corey Davis.

Jakobi Meyers has developed into one of the more underrated receivers in football. The former NC State quarterback has recorded 209 catches for 2,399 yards and eight touchdowns over the last three seasons in New England.

At just 26 years old, Meyers is expected to have a pretty sizable market this offseason. If the price is right, the Jets should absolutely be interested.

2. The NY Jets can sign JuJu Smith-Schuster

It feels like the Jets have been connected to JuJu Smith-Schuster quite a bit over the last few seasons. Is 2023 the year they finally bring him to Florham Park?

Smith-Schuster signed a one-year, prove-it deal with the Kansas City Chiefs last offseason, and it proved to be a smart career move. Not only did Smith-Schuster win a Super Bowl, but he finished with 78 catches for 933 yards and three touchdowns — the best year since his breakout 2018 campaign.

Smith-Schuster doesn't exactly fill the same role as Davis, but he would be an exciting addition nonetheless.

1. The NY Jets can sign Allen Lazard

This is my favorite free-agent wide receiver target for the Jets. Allen Lazard makes sense whether the Jets trade for Aaron Rodgers or not. At 6-foot-5, 227 pounds, Lazard would be an ideal replacement for Davis.

The former undrafted free agent is coming off his best season with the Packers in 2022, in which he finished with 60 catches for 788 yards and six touchdowns as Green Bay's top target.

Lazard is not a No. 1 wide receiver, but he's a big-bodied red-zone target who could absolutely fill Davis' role in the offense. The big question is, just how much money will he get on the open market?
