Latest NewsJets | Interested in two WRs (Wed May 8, 07:54 PM) - The New York Jets have expressed interest in free-agent WR Braylon Edwards (Jets) and WR Ramses Barden (Giants). Our View: Edwards could always stay with the Jets. He has good chemistry with QB Mark Sanchez and can be a reliable veteran target. Edwards re-joined the Jets last year after the Seahawks let him go in December. In three games (all starts) he compiled 10 catches for 125 yards.

2012 Game Summaries
Week 3 - The surprise of the evening was Ramses Barden who, after several seasons languishing on the inactive list, finally made his presence felt. Barden benefited from the Panthers’ soft coverage – cornerbacks were often lined up eight to ten yards off Barden – and the receiver took full advantage. Barden ran in-breaking patterns to good effect and Manning found him each and every time. Barden shows excellent catch radius and was able to escape a tackle or two with good open field moves on occasion. Barden was able to have his way with rookie CB Josh Norman, but this could be his most productive outing of the season. If defensive backs come up and press Barden at the line of scrimmage, he may struggle. However, any time Nicks is out, Barden is definitely worth a flier.
Week 4 - Ramses Barden came down to earth after week 3, made some nice catches in this game but expectations were higher for the WR after it was announced that Nicks would not play. Barden was locked into a battle with the Eagles DB’s in press man to man coverage for most of this game and didn’t register a catch until the second half. Barden got behind the defense on one play, taking advantage of the press coverage and hauled in a pretty floated ball from Manning down the field on a fade route. Barden caught one other pass on the outside but wasn’t able to haul in any more balls despite the targets towards the end of the game. Barden was targeted twice in the final drive. Barden managed to draw a questionable defensive pass interference penalty on CB Asomugha but later undid this by drawing an offensive pass interference penalty on himself to take the Giants out of field goal range. Manning struggled mightily with the pass rush in this game for the most part and all the Giants receiving options took a hit in production as a result, especially Barden.
