The Jets signed the "Best of the Rest" today, adding 20 free agents to their roster. <BR><BR…
The Jets released Boise State wide receiver Lou Fanucchi on Sunday. Fanucchi was a good college player, but at 5-11 with average speed, he is not what the Jets are looking for to fill their fourth wideout spot. The Jets actually have a number of intriguing candidates to fill the fourth wide receiver spot with players like the incumbent Kevin Swayne, sleeper free agent Cecil Moore, speedster Jon Carter, ex-quarterback Tory Woodbury and former Bronco Phil McGeoghan. Swayne had a good minicamp. Moore out of East Tennessee State was one of the most sought after undrafted free agents. He has good size at a little under 6-2 and 215 pounds. He had an excellent college career. Carter can fly. Woodbury is still a work in progress, but has superb raw talent. McGeoghan is a 6-2, 220 pound wideout who actually saw some action with the Broncos . . . Santana Moss had a good minicamp. "Santana is obviously feeling a lot more confident," said Edwards. "He's been in the system for three years. He has that swagger to him again." . . . Former Giant fullback Shawn Bennett had a good camp. He has tremendous speed for a 230 pounder . . . The Jets think they have a sleeper in Texas A&M safety Wes Bautovich. They brought him in to play safety, but he has bulked up to 230 pounds, without losing his sub 4.7 speed, so they think he would make a good weakside linebacker . . . The Jets like a free agent defensive end from Tulane named Kenan Blackmon. He is a 6-5, 262 pounder with good speed, who had 15 sacks over his last two years in college. They also like the motor of free agent defensive end Lance Gibson. The Central Washington product came to camp for a tryout, but they liked him so much they signed him. He has good potential, but he needs to add some weight.
