New York won't break bank on receiver
The Jets aren't exactly known for having a love affair with big-ticket wide receivers.
Not that there isn't some interest. The Jets would love to have either at the right price, but each player's demands will no doubt be too rich for the Jets blood.
In case you need to be reminded, the Jets aren't known for their love affair with big-ticket wide receivers. They let Johsnon go in 2000 to avoid paying him the big bucks, and then low-balled Laveranues Coles last year. Coles had just finished up a season in which he caught 89 balls for 1,264 yards, and was asking the Jets for a seven-year deal averaging $4.5 million a year with a $10-million signing bonus. Instead, they offered him a measly $6 million signing bonus, the same bonus they gave Wayne Chrebet a year earlier.
