Jets and Lions fans may be avoiding each other prior to the teams’ matchup this weekend in New York. However, both groups of fans seem to have similar opinions regarding a potential trade for a notable cornerback. Let’s take a look at who the fans are hoping to acquire…
- When asked by a reader if the Lions could pursue Cowboys defensive back Morris Claiborne, ESPN.com’s Michael Rothstein replied that it’s not very likely. However, if the Lions suffer another injury, they may reconsider.
- ESPN.com’s Rich Cimini echoes that sentiment, saying a Jets trade for Claiborne makes little sense. The writer also explains why the deal wouldn’t make sense for the Cowboys, considering all the dead money they’d take on by dealing the former first-rounder.
- Furthermore, Cimini can’t envision the team acquiring another wide receiver, even if Eric Decker‘s injury continues to linger.
- ESPN.com’s David Newton defends Panthers offensive coordinator Mike Shula, attributing the team’s struggles to an unhealthy quarterback, new wideouts and a new offensive line.
