This player addition can certainly help the Jets . . .

He has talent, along with good size (6-3, 205) and speed (4.51). He can help the Jets, there is no doubt about it . . .

The Chicago Bears liked wide receiver Marquess Wilson. That is why they kept him around for four years (2013-16) He just couldn’t stay healthy, breaking his left foot three times. The Jets signed him on June 20.

“When healthy, he’s a pretty fluid route-runner and has good size,” one long-time Bears observer told me. “He’s broken his foot three times and had a collarbone injury in 2014. Each summer there were high hopes for him but he couldn’t stay on the field. The Jets is probably a good spot since he knows (Josh) McCown and (Matt) Forte and they aren’t that deep at wide receiver.”

When Wilson came out of Washington State in 2013, there were questions about his attitude because he quit the team after not getting along with Head Coach Mike Leach. How was his attitude in Chicago?

“He didn’t have any attitude issues (in Chicago),” said the observer. “Never saw any work ethic/attitude issues.”

When he came out of WSU, he was slender and not strong enough. After four years in the Bears’ strength program, that isn’t a problem anymore.

This guy can absolutely help the Jets, but it’s all about the health of his foot. And who knows if it will hold up this time around. The Jets have a terrific training staff and a state-of-the-art training room and rehab center. Jets trainer John “Unchained” Mellody will have a good plan for him. We will see how this works out.

Wilson is certainly a guy worth taking a flyer on.
