(The Spread) – Assuming that a CBA deal eventually gets done and the NFL offseason will resume, the New York Jets could have some turnover at the receiver position.
The Jets’ biggest priority this offseason is arguably at receiver, where Santonio Holmes and Braylon Edwards’ contracts have expired. The Jets placed a first-and-third-round restricted free agent tender on Holmes last month, but he wants a long-term deal and recently said that he won’t sign his tender if the 2010 work rules remain in place.
It’s believed that signing Holmes is the Jets’ biggest priority this offseason, although according to a recent report by the Boston Globe, Rex Ryan and Co. might be interested in Randy Moss as well.
Ryan apparently has a “fondness” for Moss and views him as “a great vertical receiver.” It’s highly unlikely that if Moss is interested, that the Jets would be able to sign him, Holmes and Edwards while still addressing other areas. They have needs at defensive end, linebacker and offensive guard, so investing a lot of money in their receiving corps seems risky.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com, the Jets are currently 14/1 to win the 2012 Super Bowl. Obviously their odds will change depending on what happens with the CBA and, of course, what they do if there is an offseason.
