Jets Sign A Receiver Who Called Them "Overhyped" Last Season

Illustration for article titled Jets Sign A Receiver Who Called Them Overhyped Last Season

To make up for the loss of Santonio Holmes, the Jets added receiver Jason Hill today, per Brian Costello of the New York Post. This is the same Jason Hill who called the Jets "overhyped" last season.


From Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union:

Before I even finished a question about the challenges presented to the Jaguars receivers facing the Jets secondary, receiver Jason Hill knew what was coming.

"Same one that everyone else gives us," Hill said. "This is a league full of great players. I think sometimes they get overhyped. I talked to Drew [Coleman], Drew played there. He says it's just the aura of New York. They got a big media. That's not the Jacksonville paper, that's the big New York Times paper so they get more pub. That's what it is.


"That's the way it is. That's what it is. It's not just the Giants, Jets, same thing with the Knicks. I'm a Golden State Warriors fan, but the Knicks get more hype. Not that they're better. They just get more hype cause they're from New York."


Can this team's chemistry get any better?
