Brandon Marshall initially thought Eric Decker was a “product of Peyton”

Last year, Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker formed one of the best one-two punches the Jets have ever had at the receiver position.

Bryce Petty willing to help guy who may make Petty expendable

Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick remains out of sight but not out of mind, albeit out of the vocal cords of Todd Bowles.

Geno Smith working out with an all-star cast in Miami in offseason

Geno Smith has a pretty good pair of receivers in New York when he practices with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.
