Hill was selected under the Mike Tannenbaum regime, so general manager John Idzik "just may cut the team's losses on him," the report said. Hill has 45 catches for 594 yards and four touchdowns through two seasons.

The duds were quarterbacks
"It's a little early to label him as a bust," Lal said. "When I think of bust, I don't think of him that way. I have seen players who are higher picks that were busts because of their own laziness. Those are busts. ... I have a hard time labeling a guy a bust when he's done everything in his power. Luck in terms of injuries hasn't been on his side. Therefore, he hasn't produced consistently. And he's still only 23 years old."
Hill referred to his first two seasons as a learning experience, one that he hopes pays off in 2014.
"[T]he only thing I have to get right: Just my preparation, and how to get things done," he said per the Newark Star-Ledger. "Certain things don't have to be full speed all the time. Making sure how to learn in the classroom, where to right things down, where can I see flaws in other [teams'] corners and things like that."
"It's a big learning curve right now, still. But I'm just happy for getting another chance for this year."
That leaves the Jets hoping one or more of the receivers they drafted will develop fast. Fourth-rounder
All will get a chance to state their case in minicamp and training camp.
