The offensively deprived New York Jets are already thin at wide receiver.
This week alone, receivers Santonio Holmes (foot), Stephen Hill (knee), Jeremy Kerley (hamstring), and Clyde Gates (hamstring) all missed practice time with injuries. Holmes, in particular, is in danger of landing on the physically unable to perform list (PUP), which would require him to miss the first six games of the regular season.

Here are some big names at receiver who are available:
There is a lot of proven talent still on the market. Most importantly, there are healthy free agents who can get valuable practice reps in the Jets’ new West Coast offense.
