Jets Not Looking To Trade Key Pieces

To say that things are going poorly for the Jets would be an understatement. Gang Green is 1-5 through six games, reverting back to Geno Smith at quarterback, and recently lost Eric Decker for the remainder of the season (and possibly longer). Still, owner Woody Johnson says the Jets are not looking to trade key players between now and the trade deadline, according to Jason Cole of Bleacher Report (video link). 

Overall, Johnson says the Jets are not going to be terribly active in pursuing trades and notable players like Darrelle Revis and Brandon Marshall aren’t going anywhere. Of course, it’s fair to wonder whether there would be any sort of market for Revis even if he were made available. So far this season, Revis is rated as just No. 103 out of 112 qualified cornerbacks, according to the metrics at Pro Football Focus. Meanwhile, he’s in the midst of a five-year, $70MM contract he inked prior to the 2015 season.

Johnson also indicated that the Jets will explore all avenues to improve the team, though it’s hard to see them mortgaging the future in any capacity to help themselves in 2016. To even have a punchers chance at the postseason, the lowly Jets would have to go 8-2 the rest of the way.

    Maybe they don’t want to trade because they already know that NO ONE WANTS THEIR CRAPPY PLAYERS? Just a thought.

    • Agreed. Their only good players who would be worth anything of value are Wilkerson, Sheldon Richardson (who comes with his fair share of red flags and free agency looming), and maybe Buster Skrine (don’t know how he is doing this year, but a team desperate for corners like the Panthers could be desperate enough to trade for him). Outside of those guys, I don’t really see any other guys on their roster bringing back a ton of value in a trade unless a team is desperate/delusional.

        Also nick mangold Brandon Marshall and matt forte

        • Forte is on the wrong side of 30. A team desperate for a RB might be willing to trade for him, but nothing of crazy value. Marshall comes with his fair share of red flags.
