New York Jets: Eric Decker is number one receiver caliber

There was a lot of debate within the Jets fan base last year regarding Eric Decker. Nobody had any question that the Jets needed Decker, but the debate went on over the value. Was Eric Decker really a “number one” receiver? Was his product solely from Peyton Manning throwing the ball, and Demariyus Thomas on the opposite side? Time to analyze a bit, and see how Decker really...

Should the New York Jets trade Dee Milliner?

A large reason as to why the New York Jets went 4-12 in the 2014 season was the poor play of their secondary, which is why new general manager Mike Maccagnan made it a point to improve that area of the roster via free agency. The additions of Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie and Buster Skrine at corner and the addition of the versatile Marcus Gilchrist at safety have transformed...

Report: Bryce Petty ‘Looked Rough’ At Jets Rookie Minicamp
