Crabtree is mediocre... At best.


Possession receivers are fan favorites but home run hitters make the hall of fame. I really dont see the jets sustaining many long drives next year considering geno's inaccuracy. Thus we need a field stretcher who is a threat to score on any play.

Boldin is too old.  We're not in "win-now" mode like the Ravens or 49ers were when Boldin went on deep playoff runs with them.  We need a WR in free agency who will be a WR1 or WR2 for an extensive period.

i think he would be good for two years and let him teach the rookies how to play the game

F*ck mentors.  It's hard to learn from Anquan Boldin because a lot of his success comes from simply being a badass.  There are elements of toughness that can't be taught, and he has it.

 

If we're spending coin on a free agent WR1 or WR2 we need him here for a while to be a security blanket for whichever QB we make our "franchise guy", whether that be Geno or one of the rookies from the '14 or '15 drafts.  We're not in "win-now" mode.

It depends how cheap he comes, but I do not have a problem with bringing in Boldin.  Boldin and a high pick and maybe an injury prone guy with talent would be fine with me.  Boldin is the kind of guy they can sign to a non-damaging contract that takes some of the NEED away from the WR spot before the draft.

he would be an upgrade over holmes any day  i say dump holmes bring bolding 2 year deal, i think that would be a good move he cant ask for much and our WRs  would be better

We need a deep threat - someone who can strech the field - not sure if Crabtree's the guy.

I don't see Boldin signing here unless we're offering him a lot more or unless no other contender makes him an offer, which is unlikely since he can still play.  Playing with a bad/developing QB can end a guy's career early because people will partly or greatly blame his lack of recent production on his age.  By the time people realize he can still play he'll really be a year away or less from retirement.

 

I'm ok with bringing him in, but I don't think he's going to give the Jets any type of discount. We'll have an underperforming (and still raw) Geno Smith and little/nothing else at QB when free agency starts.  Really nothing in it for him to sign here unless we're by far the top bidder.

 Why wold Boldin take a pay cut ?    The guy was a big part of why the Ravens won a super bowl, he had some beast moments for the 49ers and it's not like Flacco or Kapernick are Brady or Manning when it comes to passing.       If you can pretty much go anywhere and you're used to winning and still have a few years left of good to great production,  why would you take a pay cut to go to a team who has a QB who was pretty bad most of last year?     It's one thing to go take a paycut to play with Brady or Manning or Rodgers and to have a chance at a super bowl.   It's another to take one and play with Geno Smith.
