What offers could the Jets get?
Alright, after filtering out the names of the teams that don’t have the ammo for Jamal Adams, and the Dolphins because of their connection to the Jets here is the list of the teams remaining. Beside each team I posted the most likely trade that they could make that fits the picks they have.
-Philadelphia Eagles: 21st overall pick
-Minnesota Vikings: 22nd or 25th overall pick
-Seattle Seahawks: 27th overall pick
-New York Giants: 36th overall pick
Those four teams all make the most sense given what range their pick is in.
The Eagles make a lot of sense given the investments they have made on the DL. Heading into the offseason with one of the worst secondaries and coming out of the draft by adding Darius Slay and Jamal Adams would be one heck of an improvement.
Minnesota has two first round picks so in theory, that makes them the most likely to take this chance. However, I do wonder if the Vikings would consider it given Harrison Smith‘s role on the team and how that may keep him from doing some of the things he thrives doing.
Seattle feels like they trade first round picks more frequently than any other team in the NFL and for good reason. The Seahawks are terrible at making 1st round selections and when they go against the grain (which is always) they usually miss badly. This feels like it has legs if they wanted to add star power to that defense.
The New York Giants are a fun narrative. Kid from the south comes up and dominates for one team in New York, only to be traded to the other team from the Empire State (I know the Buffalo Bills are also there, but….come on). He and Jabrill Peppers seem like a fun tandem to try to make work.
But now for the really important question, which one of these helps the Titans the most because there is a right answer.
