2014 NFL Team Needs: New York Jets

1. Wide Receivers: I've seen plenty of people place quarterback as the Jets' #1 need, but can we at least give Geno a chance with someone to throw to? I don't know many quarterbacks in the league aside from Manning and Brady who could have a playoff season with this receiving core. There isn't a single wideout on the Jets roster I would trust to start. They need...
