Morning Stream: Jets Looking At Brandon Marshall

The New York Jets might return to Cortland again next year, at least that's clearly what Rex Ryan wants to do. Jets' head coach stated that he would like to go back to Cortland next year, as it helped the team's chemistry.

C Nick Mangold, who returned to practice yesterday, might play on Monday against the Baltimore Ravens. This is good news for QB Mark Sanchez who's expected to make his first start against Ryan's old team. CB Darrelle Revis might come back for the Monday Night game as well.

Sanchez was 5 of 10 yesterday with a touchdown, QB Kellen Clemens went 6 of 8 with a touchdown.

According to the NY Daily News, the Jets are looking to bring in another wide receiver.

They're exploring the wide-receiver market and have held preliminary discussions with a few teams, according to NFL sources. Although he's not officially on the trading block, the biggest name on the Jets' radar is the Broncos' Brandon Marshall, who has issued a pay me-or-trade me demand.

Because of off-the-field issues, a surgically repaired hip and enormous contract demands (he's entering the final year), Marshall would be a risk for any team. But there's no denying his talent: 206 catches and 2,590 yards over the last two seasons. At 6-4, he'd be a much-needed target in the red zone for the Jets. While they consider Marshall a long shot, they're not about to summarily dismiss it.

Another name to watch is the Chiefs' Dwayne Bowe, a former first-round pick. He caught 86 balls for 1,022yards on an awful team last season, but he's had a difficult transition under new coach Todd Haley. He may have played his way out of the doghouse with five catches in the preseason opener, but the Chiefs are rebuilding and will move a player if he doesn't fit their long-term plans.
