Did Allen Robinson reveal his interest in joining the New York Jets? Kevin Mawae will have to wait another year for Pro Football Hall of Fame.
New York Jets fans have made it public who they’re interested in, but we got an interesting twist on social media.
Our good friend Joe Caporoso from TurnOnTheJets.com put out a Twitter poll about who the Jets biggest non-quarterback target should be.
The question swayed through a variety of positions from Center, to Cornerback, to Edge Rusher, and to Wide Receiver. Although Jarvis Landry may not be the receiver that signs with the Jets this offseason, Allen Robinson is.

Perhaps we’re reading too much into a potential free agent liking a tweet. Blame the millennial generation. Regardless, this would be a very interesting addition for the Jets.
The Jets’ receiving corps is anything but solid, especially when you consider Quincy Enunwa is returning from a serious neck injury while Robby Anderson’s future remains unclear after an offseason arrest.
Enter Allen Robinson into the conversation. The Jets won’t have a shortage of funds with close to $100 million in cap space expected to be available.
Speaking of free agency, that’s how the Jets acquired All-Pro talent Kevin Mawae back in 1998.

Sadly, he was denied entry into the Pro Football Hall of Fame again this year. While he did make it to the final 10, he wasn’t one of the final modern-day candidates. Better luck next year I suppose.
Let’s wrap it up with one final nugget from ESPN Insider Rich Cimini:
“Pending free agent Josh McCown, speaking to reporters yesterday at the Super Bowl, reiterated his desire to return to the Jets. He also said he’d have no problem in a mentoring role if they draft a quarterback. “It’s hard to say, ‘Hey, I want to go somewhere else’ after you had the best year of your career,” he said. McCown also said he has a “respect for the evaluation process.”
