The New York Jets passing offense was awful last season, but luckily for them this years free agent wide receivers class boasts some talent available for the Jets to pick up.

Geno Smith needs all the help he can get in New Jersey and it's looking like Rex Ryan is searching for brand new options for the quarterback, in what will be his second year. 

According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily, the Jets have big eyes for wide receivers Jeremy Maclin of the Philadelphia Eagles and the Steelers' Emmanuel Sanders, with the hope that one or both can help revamp the second to worst passing team from 2013.

Maclin missed the entire 2013 season with the Eagles after tearing his ACL in late July. His familiarity with offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg’s West Coast offense would make a switch to MetLife Stadium fairly easy.

Sanders was a restricted free agent last season, with the Steelers matching an offer that New England made for him at the time. If the Patriots and Bill Belichick are still interested than the Jets will have a fight on their hands to land him.
