Found May 08, 2013 on My Sports Rumors:
Most of the talk surrounding the New York Jets was the visit with former Browns return extraordinaire Josh Cribbs. ESPN New York reports though that the team is also kicking the tires on former New England Patriots receiver Brandon Lloyd. With what’s left on the market Lloyd could be the teams best option. There also have been rumors about possible interest in Brandon Lloyd, most recently with the Patriots. (ESPN New York) The Jets have now been tied to Cribbs, Lloyd, Braylon Edwards and former New York Giants receiver Ramses Barden. All veterans with various degrees of success. When looking at the group who do you really think is the best fit? I’d say Lloyd. Cribbs is a former All-Pro returner but the Jets already have two capable guys in Joe McKnight and Jeremy Kerley. So for a team who has a huge weakness at the wide receiver position I’d go after the best one available.
