Jacoby Ford could be KOR factor For New York Jets


Jacoby Ford was brought over to the New York Jets to give the team a speed threat on offense and he also will be a factor in the special teams. He will be one of the players competing for the job as a kick off returner specialist, but the team does want to bring in some competition for the position.

Rich Cimini suggested the name Odell Beckham Jr as competition for the job. The wide receiver from LSU would be a perfect addition to the roster and could be an option when the team selects at pick 18. Beckham not only would be an option at the kick return game, but he would immediately add a perfect compliment to Eric Decker on offense. His speed would stretch the field and he could be an immediate threat for Michael Vick or Geno Smith to throw the ball to.

Ford could be a factor on the special teams job, but this NFL Draft could change a few things around for him. A player like Beckham could be huge for this offense and for the special teams.

Can this NFL Draft just hurry up and get here already!?!

    IF…Ford can manage to stay healthy. Ask a Raider fan their take on Ford. He could be a great addition, or he could be a great disappointment. Hopefully the change in scenery and a fresh start will put the injuries in the past. I’m really hoping Hill can put the injuries behind him as well, and FINALLY put it all together! If he can do that, it would be a tremendous help for this offense!
