    Yes. Sproles is a great pass-catcher and returner.
    No. Jackson is coming off a career year. Why not keep him?

    The familiarity of the Jets’ offense won’t be much of an issue for the two, as former Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg is calling the plays in New York.

    According to Sheil Kapadia of PhillyMag.com, the Jets currently have more than $26 million in cap space and have already landed wide receiver Eric Decker in free agency.
