Receivers don’t help QB with everything

Robert Saleh was asked if adding a wide receiver was a priority and responded:

“I don’t know if it’s a priority,” Saleh said. “We want to add as many really good players as we can. We’ve got a lot of draft capital to do some of that. We have a lot of needs on our football team in terms of just trying to fill some roster voids. I thought we did a great job in free agency with the things that we did. To call it a priority, one over the other, I don’t know if I see it that way. I think every position, we’re in a good position to take the best players available at every single spot and that’s something we’ll do.”

Some people tend to obsess about the receiver position, but this team has needs across the board, some of which they have addressed so far in free agency.

But let’s keep in mind that this team has the NFL’s 32nd ranked defense last year. They need to fix that side of the ball in a major way, and began that process in free agency and will continue it in the draft.

Should they add some receivers, no doubt, but will adding receivers magically fix a young QB’s ability to go through progressions, read defenses and manipulate safeties with his eyes? Maybe not. Apples and oranges.

Zach Wilson will work on those things this off-season. It’s a big off-season for the kid.

And that answer from Saleh nails it and shows the Jets know they need to focus on improving the whole team.
