I wouldn't mind adding Ocho

I know that this my take on Ocho is different than probably 90% of the people who read and blog on this site, but I think Ocho could do well here.  There has been no buzz about 85 joining the Jets, in fact another accomplished veteran is being rumored with the Jets; Revis' best friend Randy Moss.  Imo Moss would not be a good fit on this team.  His effort simply isn't being shown on the field.  When Revis called him a slouch he had good reason for it.  He would give away running plays by his lack of intensity and by just stading on the line, he seemed to have just given up on the season.  

Although Ochocinco's numbers were't even average this past year (67 rec, 831 yards, 4td's) I think that he would be a great replacement for Santonio Holmes if he leaves via free agency.  Chad is a speedy route runner with good, not great hands. He stretches the field and doesn't fear going over the middle. However the biggest positive about adding Ocho is his desire to win.  Randy Moss has been on winning teams, Chad has not and he is frustrated by the Bengals franchise.  There are no character concerns with Chad, but he has complained about teammates before not getting him the ball. If he were to come here being ok with knowing that he may only get targeted 80-100 times then I say why not? He'll probably come at 750k-2 mill tops, he wants to win, he replaces Holmes with his speed, decent playmaking ability, willingness to go over the middle and desire to win a super bowl.

He isn't the missing piece to a Super Bowl, but he should be able to contribute.  Last years numbers likely won't be as bad as they were last year, but they won't be anything spectacular.  He could potentially be a great red zone target and get 6 or 8 td's.

My belief about our WR situation is that we don't need Holmes and Edwards.  It becomes to much of a distraction trying to get everyone the ball.  As it is we have Edwards or Holmes (I prefer Edwards because he'll fit the ground and pound offense better), Keller and J CO. Having Ocho would primarily be used so that Braylon isn't doubled up on and thrown to for short passes.  I only bring up Ocho because of all this nonsense about us signing Randy Moss.
