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.
