Cornerback Antonio Cromartie agitated teammates last month when he called himself the second best receiver on the New York Jets.
That might be Cromartie's worldview, but it's not Rex Ryan's. The Jets coach has named rookie Stephen Hill as the starter across from Santonio Holmes, The Star-Ledger reported Thursday.
There's little surprise in the announcement. The Jets are paper thin at receiver and Hill is the obvious choice, despite his uneven preseason.
As the last sentence of the quote indicates, this appears to say more about the state of the Jets receiving corp than it does about Stephen Hill. Still, it will be interesting to see how this plays out over the season.
