Have to bring this up. So Jerricho is likely to be released according to reports. I don't know about you guys, but I would LOVE to bring him back. Would fit great into a WCO as well. Only issue is that Braylon would be the odd man out (assuming we can't get rid of Holmes). Also, he could take playing time away from potentially younger receivers such as a draft pick or Hill. Thoughts?

While I don't think they should have ever gotten rid of him, I don't think it makes sense to take playing time away from Hill and Kerly at this point.

Never should have let him go in the first place though.

Naw, we should have kept him happy the first time. Out of the two, I would rather have Braylon and hold him until Hill show up. Kerley deserves to be on the field, and Hill need some PT to develop.

Stephan Hill should literally be entitled to NOTHING. He couldn't have been any less impressive in his rookie season. Its not even that he can't catch, he actually doesn't know how to catch. Not to mention the fact that hes a WCO misfit, I honestly have no faith in this guy as an offensive weapon. Id take a 3rd round pick to get rid of this guy. I am by no means saying he is a bust, because he might actually be quite good, but its going to take time and he doesn't fit this offense. Id take an over the hill Cotchery in a WCO over a young Hill in a WCO any day.

Kerley, on the other hand, you have an argument

all of this. 100% agree. Hill is a 4th or 5th receiver right now at most.

They won't give up on him this early. Hill has a huge upside and we aren't going anywhere next year so let's see if he put the work in the offseason and can shake the drops.

He'll get another 2 years at least. If he doesn't show any improvement then we need to move on.

Jeremey Kerley is younger and better. no need for Cotchery. We will have Santonio Holmes, Braylon Edwards, Stephen Hill and Jeremy Kerley. All recievers more than capabable.

If we can only fix sanchez we would be set

Cotchery will be no more than a 4th WR used as a slot receiver behind Kerley on this team. It is better to continue to develop Kerley and Hill and hope Holmes has his head on straight. I can't see the Jets improving their WR corp without improving their QB first.

Yikes. A bit early to dismiss the guy, isn't it? Nobody thought the guy was a polished receiver by any means, considering he played WR in a triple option.

This idea that he can't succeed in the WCO is misguided. Obviously a long strider isn't ideal but the other thing you need from a receiver in the WCO is the ability to gain yards after the catch. Likewise, ideally you have someone that can get body position in short yardage situations, like quick slants and crosses.

Also, the WCO creates seams where someone with Hill's speed can be deadly. If he can limit his drops and take a step in progression, why can't he succeed in this offense?
