  Jets | Andre Roberts has edge for returner job    Fri Jul 6, 05:41 PM

New York Jets WR Andre Roberts appears to be the leading candidate for the punt returner job entering training camp but will compete with WR Lucky Whitehead and RB Trenton Cannon during camp.

Footballguys view: None of those three players are likely to factor into the offense much beyond special teams, although it's not like the Jets are top heavy with receiving talent. In general, and especially until we see a quarterback emerge, we are avoiding this offense as expectations are that they will struggle.

  Jets | Lucky Whitehead signs with Jets    Fri Nov 24, 10:58 AM

Free-agent WR Lucky Whitehead (Cowboys) was signed to the New York Jets' practice squad Friday, Nov. 24.

Footballguys view: Whitehead was with the Jets earlier this year, but a foot injury that required surgery prevented him from making the 53-man roster out of training camp. He's a return man and slot receiver that will try to earn a spot on the active roster now that he's in the building.

  Jets | Lucky Whitehead out 4-6 weeks    Wed Aug 16, 10:19 AM

Updating a previous report, New York Jets WR Lucky Whitehead (foot) is expected to miss four to six weeks, according to a source. He'll receive a second opinion before determining if surgery on his broken foot is necessary.

Footballguys view: Whitehead was added by the Jets after the Cowboys were quick to release him in a mistaken identity case. Now, with a broken foot, Whitehead is unlikely to make the 53-man roster.

  Jets | Lucky Whitehead has broken foot    Tue Aug 15, 04:28 PM

New York Jets WR Lucky Whitehead (foot) will be out for an extended period of time with a broken foot, according to head coach Todd Bowles. It is unclear at this point if Whitehead will need surgery.

Footballguys view: He should just start going with Rodney (his first name) instead of Lucky...he's been anything but over the last month. The Cowboys cut him in a case of mistaken identity, the Jets picked him up and now he's broken his foot.

  Jets | Bruce Ellington in mix for return work    Fri Aug 4, 11:27 PM

New York Jets WR Bruce Ellington, WR Lucky Whitehead and WR Jalin Marshall are candidates to return kicks this season.

Footballguys view: This might be the only way Jets receivers have fantasy impact - if your league allows kick return yards. None of them are draft worthy, but it's worth watching this to see if the defense/special teams has value.

Footballguys view: Whitehead was released by the Cowboys after he was falsely accused of a crime. He's found a new team where he'll have a chance to win a spot on the 53-man roster. In addition to contributing as a wideout, Whitehead could work as a return man too.

Free-agent WR Lucky Whitehead (Cowboys) will not be re-signed by the Dallas Cowboys despite having his shoplifting charge dropped due to mistaken identity, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones.

Footballguys view: Head coach Jason Garrett said the team made a decision they thought would be best for the Cowboys. They discussed the situation with Whitehead where he likely expressed his innocence but the team cut him anyway.

  NFL | Charges dropped against Lucky Whitehead    Tue Jul 25, 01:10 PM

Free-agent WR Lucky Whitehead (Cowboys) had the shoplifting charge that led the Dallas Cowboys releasing him Monday, July 24, dropped by Virginia authorities Tuesday, July 25.

Footballguys view: The optics are bad for the Cowboys here. They cut Whitehead before confirming the arrest. A man was arrested and gave false information. Whitehead is cleared from this incident and looking for a new team. This looks bad for the Cowboys as controversy and allegations circle around superstar running back Ezekiel Elliott. The team insists Elliott has done nothing wrong but were quick to action in this false charge for Whitehead.

  Cowboys | Lucky Whitehead's spot in danger?    Fri Jun 23, 11:43 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Lucky Whitehead could lose his roster spot if WR Ryan Switzer shows he is capable of being the primary return man, according to David Moore of the Dallas Morning News.

Footballguys view: Switzer is a quick-twitch wide receiver who can get open on underneath routes. His fast foot frequency allows him to change direction without losing much speed within his route. Switzer has a small catch radius, but if the pass is on point he can make a play after the catch. He's also a good return man. Whitehead will have his work cut out for him if he wants to make the 53-man roster.
