DHB drawing interest from Jets, not Colts

The recent, periodic flurries of tweets from Colts owner Jim Irsay have made it clear that the Colts are and have been pursuing a receiver.

As Irsay said Sunday, it’s not current Giants receiver Victor Cruz.  As a source with knowledge of the situation told PFT on Sunday night, it’s also not former Raiders receiverDarrius Heyward-Bey.

Cut on Tuesday, the seventh overall pick in the 2009 draft hasn’t generated much buzz.  However, we’re told that the Jets have interest in Heyward-Bey.

It’s unclear at this point whether Heyward-Bey has interest in the Jets.

The former Maryland speedster seemed to be on the verge of breaking out in 2011, with 975 receiving yards on 65 catches.  But his production dropped by roughly a third in 2012, so the Raiders dropped the remainder of his pre-rookie wage scale contract.

Matters the $ he was looking for but Idzk can do one of those low downside contracts I am all in. I can see the Sanjay Lal connection

plus he can instruct Stephen Hill on how to progress from green rube to somewhat productive receiver.

i dont think DHB would get a lot of interest around the league so i think we could sign him cheap. Also it gives me nightmares that hes still out there for the pats to pick up

I posted this in another thread.  Here is the side-by-side comparison of DHB and Stephen Hill.  Very similar numbers.  I'd be okay bringing him in on the cheap.  Hands are still suspect, but you can't deny his 9-route.  

 

 

 

Hill (6'4, 215) ran a 4.36 forty, and jumped a 39.5'' vert... 133'' broad...   Hand size = 9 3/8  Arm length = 33 3/8

 

Heyward-Bey (6'2, 210) ran a 4.30 forty, and jumped a 38.5'' vert... 126'' broad...  Hand size = 9'  Arm length = 33 5/8

They are going to suck next year. Why not bring in some high ceiling guys who might contribute the next time the Jets are good?

My guess is that they would be competing for the position of "tall, fast dude who can't play WR".

This type of move would signal to me the Jets would be looking for the QB in this years draft that has the biggest upside/score/scouts opinion, whatever you want to call it, that has the biggest arm, and most accurate deep ball thrower, I think that would put M Glennon on a watch list for the NYJ's in round #3 if he is available, I think Idzik is smart enough to not reach in RD 2 for a project, where in RD 3 it's no longer a reach.

DHB would be a nice signing, low risk deal.

 

But, how are they supposed to be running a WCO with receivers like DHB and Hill? They are both vertical receivers, not horizontal.

Marty Morn's offense is predicated on deep shots. He takes more deep shots than most WCO.

I don't think you mess around at QB. You don't decide one guy is a reach and wait around to take another guy that might not be a reach a round later.  QB is like a light switch.  He is either on or off, good or bad. A 3rd round QB that hits is worth a million Kellen Clemens.  If they like Glennon they aren't going to wait around.  QB is too important to gamble and wait around.  FWIW, I think they may just live with what they have, plus some other lousy FA and hope somebody steps up.

Not to mention IF Rex is a 1 year hold over in Idzik's mind, then so is MM, yes a 1 year deal with DHB would be something geared towards MM, but if its a multi year deal it has nothing to do with what MM wants to do on offense.

He can take DeSean Jackson's roles as a deep threat with limit action in the intermediate game. Also DHB isn't really like Hill as he's 6'1 and although a weakness his hips are more fluid compared to Hill at 6'4. Hill is like Jerome Simpson.

Really?  I think improving our WR depth really has nothing to do with our QB situation.  I wouldn't be surprised if we add KK and dismiss the position entirely on draft weekend.

Dismissing the QB in the draft this year would be a bad idea, TBH you should draft one every single year, even if its in the late rounds, you just never know, you can't win the lotto if you don't play.
