Josh Cribbs gets another look from the Jets

The Jets could obviously use the help, as they’re 31st in the league in kickoff return average.

So it’s not a total surprise that they’d kick the tires — again —on Josh Cribbs.

The Jets had Cribbs in this summer, when he was visiting teams trying to prove he was well enough to help. He wasn’t, which led to the Giants and Cardinals shying away as well. He had a brief stint in Oakland which ended as he was being evaluated for a knee injury.

“We had a nice visit with Joshua,” Jets general manager John Idzik said then, via Kimberley Martin of Newsday,. “We got to get the physical on him, so it was a very informative visit. I don’t think he’s quite there yet. But he’s probably getting close.”

The Jets aren’t close to competent in that area, as Clyde Gates is averaging less than a touchback per attempt (19.8 yards), though they also have Mike Goodson coming back from suspension as well.

    Gates is awful at kick returning. He might be leading the league in pinning the offense inside the 20. Take notes punters.

    We should have brought back Leon Washington when we had the chance!

    Everyone stop comparing Geno to Sanchez. Our current offense in my opinion is agressive passing and I like that. Samchez relied on play action off of our RUN first offense. I’m okay with the interceptions, it’s the fumbles Geno is killing me with. I’m confident he’s better than Sanchez and will clean up the fumbles. I’d rather have a mobile QB with the Ability to run over captain headband any day. Go Jets!!!

    Whitdog,

    Obviously then, you have learned how to evaluate talent. Since you’re so good at it, which franchise do you work for?
