Only way he catches 80 balls this season is if Max brings him aboard as a moderator.

Broncos have declared they don't even need WR's since Teblow is their starter. Pretty sure they're just gonna line up TeBlow and 10 lineman.

Championship.

Certainly a very interesting pickup. Figured the MTV release was to promote a different guy up from their PS, but it's certainly interesting to see them bring another WR, and particularly not one of their own PS guys, onto the active roster. Sure as hell sounds like the guy has the physical skillset, let's just hope he can put something together, because the Jets sure as hell could use a big, downfield threat.

Hasn't done a damn thing for 3 years on other teams PS's

How does this FO continue to pick up scrubs like this, and let proven guys like Mike Sims Walker walk to other teams

Pissed :cussing:

Meh, MSW was benched and then cut by the team with the worst WR corps in the entire league... not exactly a ringing endorsement. If the Jets think Riley has a chance to be something legit, than it's certainly worth the shot. What he's done up to this point doesn't mean crap, it's all about what he does from here on out. It's not like there hasn't been plenty of NFL players before him that took a while to catch on, and that alone will have little to do with whether he has any future success.

He catch +2,000 receiveing yards!!! this it half of the answer!!! what more you want?

I agree. Everyone is acting like this is a dumb thing. The tall WR's the Jets have now aren't producing. Lets take a look at someone who might.

If not. Back to the PS. Nothing lost

Just read all there is to read on this guy and I applaud this move. Our wide receiver corp is nothing great outside Holmes and maybe Kerley. This guy can run and has had time to get acclimated to the speed of the pro game. Why not give him a shot. We also play the Broncos later in the year, so some intelligence gathering is not unheard of.

Yeah, considering the guy is taking literally the very bottom spot on the entire active roster, if the team think the guy has a chance at being anything I don't see the big deal. MTV isn't getting back onto the field any time soon with Pitoitua back healthy and Ellis ahead of him on the depth chart and they clearly feel comfortable with keeping him on the PS considering that's where he was until they reailzed they needed him for Monday's game. Sure he could turn out to be a complete waste of space but if so, so what? I'm sure they'll figure that out quickly enough and move on.

#Jets sign WR Eron Riley off #Broncos practice squad. Good hands and decent speed for a 6'3" wideout. Has to be better than Patrick Turner.

Boo. Dislike. I'm talking about the post, not the player. Matt you have usurped 128's role! Let the kid do his job.

Agreed. The strange thing is that with the Broncos trading Brandon Lloyd you would think they would have promoted him. It's strange that he was that low in their plans and we still had interest. Maybe the Jets want the speed so they have a guy that is wide open and Sanchez can actually spot the guy as open in his progression. I think Burress is getting a little too much hate right now, but on that one fly pattern that he ran he looked slow and I'm sure they'd rather have a burner to run that route.

We release Mason who was a nice 3rd receiver on the team, to sign yet another "Logan Payne" type guy

All the BS this FO throws out there for us to listen to is nauseating

I can see them using McKnight more and more at wideout, so this pick up will probably not do anything for us

Just wondering. Why did the JETS not trade for Brandon Lloyd ?

The Broncos would have preferred to trade him away to JETS instead of division foes Chiefs and to hated ex Broncos HC McDaniels!

Outside of the fact that the last thing the Jets need at WR is another guy in his 30s, I assure you the Broncos were more than happy to trade him out of the conference (to the Rams), regardless of who that team's OC was. After all, it didn't seem to be a problem for the Jets when they traded with the Brown's 3 months after sh*t-canning Mangini.

Its surprising to see you not want a WR in his 30s to play for the JETS. :)

Who's going to be the Jets tall WR?

good question...giving McKnight more snaps at wideout would not solve that problem but it would reduce the need for another WR.

I guess we can keep waiting for Plax to revert back to the Plax of old (minus the gunshot wound). With the way Rex has been talking after the Miami game, he is going to try to force the ball to Plax, which always works out well....

They have been trying to force the ball to Plax all season. That's what that 50 yard attempted TD pass in garbage time was all about. Hasn't been working so well so far.

As far as how Rex is talking. Did Mason get his 90 catches? Rex is Rex

Don't have a clue how this kid is going to work out, but he had a great camp, and has the right size/speed ratio for what the Jets need.

If he works, great. if not, oh well

Definitely worth a look especially because it does not hurt us one way or the other
