According to Profootballtalk.com Chad Henne told reporters in Miami that he like to see the receiver corps get upgraded. Earlier in the off season Henne said that he would like to get a big number one to throw to. Now he is mentioning names, and not just any names. He mentioned Terrell Owens and Brandon Marshall.
“There’s definitely guys out there, like you said,” Henne said. “There’s T.O. , Theres Brandon Marshall.”
Miami is most likely to pick up a receiver in the draft because Marshall would cost a lot and T.O. is known to be a distraction, even though he behaved well in Buffalo. Though Owens numbers went down he still is a good receiver. Its also pretty hard to put up great numbers in Buffalo.
“There’s guys in the draft,” Henne said. “Where we’re at, we have a bunch of young guys who are definitely learning and going to be explosive in the next coming year. But you need kind of a veteran guy that’s really going to take hold of our young guys and teach them the right ways.”
Even though wide receiver isn’t our biggest need it still is a huge need. Some of you may say that wide receiver is our biggest need but the Jets showed that running the ball and great defense could win.
I believe that if Parcells doesn’t want to give up picks for Marshall then Owens would be our next best option.
