Once upon a time, Stephen Hill was supposed to be the answer to the Jets’ questions at wide receiver.
Now, the question is whether he’ll remain on their roster throughout the weekend.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Jets tried to trade Hill this summer, and no one bit.
Hill has 45 catches for 594 yards and four touchdowns, which would be a good season. Except that’s two seasons worth of stats, which is why they’re frustrated.
The former second-round pick from Georgia Tech has the requisite size and speed, but lacks a certain, shall we say “ability to catch flying things,” that has slowed his progress.
We’ll see as the Jets move to 75 today and 53 Saturday if that’s something they’ll continue to hope for.
