The Jets apparently arn’t finished tweaking their wide receiver depth, even after adding Brandon Marshall and parting ways with Percy Harvin. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter (on Twitter), free agent wideout Denarius Moore will meet with the organization on Thursday.
The former fifth-round pick had the weakest season of his career in 2014, finishing with career-lows in receptions (12), yards (115) and touchdowns (zero). To add insult to injury, Moore finished 187th among 218 receiver candidates in Pro Football Focus’ position rankings (subscription required). However, the 26-year-old is not far removed for a productive 2012 campaign, and his speed could help a receiving corps that is highlighted by Marshall and Eric Decker.
Rumors surrounding the 26-year-old have been quiet so far this offseason, and we heard earlier this week that there was “not a chance” Moore would return to the Raiders. Meanwhile, this isn’t the first we’ve heard of the Jets pursuing some reinforcement at wideout. The team reportedly had interest in Stevie Johnson and Cecil Shorts, who have since signed elsewhere.
