After receiving criticism for dragging their feet in free agency, the Jets are . . . dragging their feet in free agency.
Per multiple reports, the Jets have yet to express interest in receiver DeSean Jackson, even though their owner said last Sunday that the team has interest in the explosive wideout recently wiped off the roster by the Eagles.
It’s possible that the Jets have become uninterested in Jackson, but if so it would make sense to say so. The other possibility is that G.M. John Idzik is biding his time. Which eventually could leave him out of time.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, more than seven teams are interested. Three are aggressively pursuing Jackson. One wants him desperately.
It’s unclear at this point which team wants Jackson badly, although it is clear that the Raiders fans do. Fortunately for the Jets (if they plan to make a play), numbers have not yet been discussed. Still, the process could soon be creeping toward the “speak now or forever hold your peace/piece/whatever” phase.
