Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News is reporting that Gang Green is looking to veteran receiver Donte Moncrief as a possible option to add some veteran depth to a group that’s in dire need of some. The 6′ 2” Moncrief would give the Jets another speedy receiver as he has been clocked as fast as 4.4 leading up to the NFL draft.
