What's green and white and has 34 legs?
No, the answer is the New York Jets' receiving corps.
The Jets did it again on Monday, signing yet another wide receiver -- Charles Johnson. It brings their total to 17 receivers on the 86-man roster, which is rather mind boggling.
The Jets have enough receivers to start their own NBA team.
They have enough for every syllable in a Haiku poem (17).
The goal is to create competition at the position, but the Jets have taken it to the nth degree. Maybe they're planning to install a run-and-shoot offense. (Kidding. I think.) There is a highly-technical name for their unique approach at the position:
Three are free-agent additions -- Terrelle Pryor, Roberts and Johnson.
By the season opener, the Jets will be down to five or six receivers (did someone say seven?). There isn't a proven No. 1 receiver among the group, which has to be disconcerting. One thing appears certain: They may need extra chairs in the receiver room when the offseason program begins next Monday.
