The Jets shouldn't stop with getting former Bills. Wide receiver Stevie Johnson was released by the San Francisco 49ers. Johnson is best known to Jets fans for his six seasons in Buffalo, four of which came with Ryan Fitzpatrick. Johnson enjoyed the best seasons of his career while playing under Chan Gailey and with Ryan Fitzpatrick. In 2010 he caught 82 balls for over 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns. The 28 year old recorded 35 catches and 3 touchdowns in San Francisco this past year. He caught off to a huge start, but fading down the last quarter of the year in part due to injuries. He also has had character issues in the past, but didn't seem to have any issues with the 49ers. Another plus with bringing in Stevie Johnson is that he won't cost much. I am not expecting him to get any sort of significant money.
While wide receiver is no longer at the top of the Jets list with the addition of Brandon Marshall, it is still an area that should be addressed. Right now the Jets have only three proven guys at the position, Marshall, Kerley, and Decker. The rest of the unit is filled with guys like Chris Owusu, Saliim Hakim, Shaq Evans, Quincy Enunwa, and Walter Powell. None of these guys are even considered to be potential big impact players in 2015. Stevie Johnson can still play and at a higher level than any of these guys. Signing Stevie Johnson would turn the receiving depth into a major strength for the Jets.
