The New York Jets are going to continue to hear their name brought up in trade talks as we approach the deadline on November 2.
Whether fairly or unfairly, this team has been labeled a seller by the masses, and NFL teams are like vultures flying over a rotting carcass. If they think they can get a deal and swipe a key piece to improve their title chances, they’ll do it.
There is a lot of speculation if the Jets will be sellers at the deadline. If history is any indication, general manager Joe Douglas will certainly answer the phone if it rings.
One team that could be calling the green and white sooner rather than later is the New Orleans Saints.
“I think the Saints should consider trading for Jamison Crowder or Denzel Mims,” said ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini on the Flight Deck podcast. “They need wide receivers and Crowder is a polished guy that could step right in. Mims is more of a long-term project but that wouldn’t surprise me if the Saints come knocking looking for some wideouts.”
New Orleans simply don’t have the horses to compete at wide receiver:
- Chris Hogan
- Marquez Callaway
- Lil’Jordan Humphrey
- Ty Montgomery
- Kenny Stills
- Deonte Harris
