The Jets signed WR Chaz Schilens to a one-year deal, but in four pro seasons, he has yet to live up to his talent. Injury-prone, he has never emerged as a legitimate NFL starter or fantasy receiver. Last year with the Raiders he went 23-271-2 on 34 targets and started only five games despite it being his first season since 2008 when he was healthy for most of the season.

Schilens has career totals of 72-902-7 in 44 games and will compete for a starting job across from Santonio Holmes. The Jets' offensive philosophy will be run-heavy next season as they return to a power rushing attack. He will compete with Jeremy Kerley for the No. 2 receiver role and is a late-round flier, at best, in fantasy leagues if he wins the job.

It's always possible he may have turned the corner with his health and his talent may finally come through. That's a big "if," but never say never, as he could become valuable enough as the season wears on to warrant an in-season pickup.
