With Santonio Holmes expected to miss the rest of the season with his Lisfranc injury, the Jets are going to fill his spot with wide receiver Jason Hill, according to multiple reports.

Yeah, that Jason Hill.

Hill was the same guy who called the Jets “overhyped,” and cornerback Darrelle Revis a “good player,” suggesting his fame was more a function of working in a major media market than his particular skills.

That prompted Revis, appropriately, to reply: “I don’t even know who that dude is.”

Who Jason Hill is is a guy who started 10 games for the receiver-starved Jaguars last year, and caught 25 passes for 367 yards and three touchdowns. He spent the offseason with the Broncos, but was released in final cuts.

The Jets will find all that out soon enough, as they introduce themselves to their new teammate.

Should be fun.
