We have the 52nd position filled on the GGN All Time Jets Team. The winner of the sixth and final vote at Wide Receiver is: Art Powell!
Art Powell played 10 years for five teams in the AFL/NFL, from 1959 through 1968. He spent just three years with the New York Titans, from 1960 through 1962. In those three years Powell had two 1100+ yard seasons, led the AFL in touchdowns in 1960, and led the AFL in receiving yards in 1962. Powell was named first team All AFL twice in his career, once with the Titans, and second team All AFL three times. For his career Powell ranks 26th all time in receiving touchdowns and 26th all time in receiving yards per game.

Every day I will be putting up a poll at one position. The choices will be limited to players who were on the Jets roster for at least three seasons. I will not be including players who were great for other teams but not great for the Jets (for example, guys like Matt Forte or LaDainian Tomlinson will not be included in the polls, though both those guys would be excluded for not meeting the three year rule as well). Each day we will close the previous day’s poll and the candidate with the most votes will be added to the GGN All Time Jets Team. In the event of a tie vote both players will be added to the team.
In the event I have made an egregious omission and a name you think should be on the poll is not there you can write in candidates in the comments section. If a player gets support in the comments section I’ll add him to the next day’s poll.
We’re in the home stretch now. Today we cast the first vote for the final position group on the team, the quarterbacks. Vote early, vote often, and let’s hear who you think are the best players ever to have played for the New York Jets.
Who is the best Jets quarterback of all time?
