Let's imagine, for the sake of argument, that somehow, after negotiations finally end, we end up with another cap-free year. And the Jets front office finds itself with an unlimited amount of cash it can use to go after any free agent it desires. Who would the team chase? Who would you want them to chase? In this post, I describe my dream 2011 Jets roster. It'll never happen, but on a lazy Indepedence Day weekend, it's fun to speculate. More after the jump.
Wide Receiver - I'm already breaking my own rules. Obviously, I'd love to see both Santonio Holmes and Braylon Edwards return, but to make this interesting, I'll pretend that Edwards makes a personal decision to take his talents elsewhere. I'd like to see the Jets go after Vikings WR Sidney Rice. Hobbled by a hip injury in 2010, Rice's production waned, but if he's healthy, his size, speed, and the 1312 yards and 8 touchdowns he had in 2009 would be a great addition to the team. Let's not even talk about Brad Smith leaving. In this fantasy, he stays. End of story.
Running Back - To be honest, I don't think I'd change a thing in the backfield. I like LT and Shonn Greene right where they are and am excited to see Greene continue to develop this season.
