The New York Jets are currently ranked 28th in the league in passing yards per game. The reason for this ranking is not only a factor of a building quarterback controversy between Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow, but in part because of a depleted wide receiving core.
With the loss of Santonio Holmes, the Jets have had to rely upon the likes of Chad Schilens, Jeremy Kerley, Clyde Gates, Jason Hill, and injured rookie Stephen Hill to pick up the production in the passing game. Clearly they haven’t been getting it done.
After Monday night’s loss to The Houston Texans, free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens took to twitter in a campaign to become a member of the Jets.
“Hey JETS!!!” Owens wrote. “I’m available! I’m ready, willing & able! Call my agent @jordanwoy & let’s make it happen.”
The morning after the Jets lost to the Texans, 23-17, coach Rex Ryan was asked about the veteran receiver, according to the New York Post.
“You never say never to anything. We’ll look at all options like we always do,” Ryan said.
Terrell Owens is just one of three veteran wide receivers looking to land teams. Chad Johnson, and former Jet Plaxico Burress are also available if the Jets decide to upgrade their wide receiver position.
