The New York Jets have cap area to shell out this offseason and assets they could component with on the trade market as they glimpse to enhance their roster all over remarkable younger quarterback Sam Darnold.
Enhancing the talent positions will be crucial, but in accordance to Connor Hughes of The Athletic, 1 prospective trade focus on Jets supporters can probable rule out is Cincinnati Bengals broad receiver A.J. Inexperienced:
“I was told by a league resource it is ‘highly, extremely unlikely’ Cincinnati moves the playmaking wideout, who’s in the final yr of a four-yr, $60 million agreement signed in 2015. Bengals operator Mike Brown loves Inexperienced, and if it really is up to him, he’ll retire a Bengal. Inexperienced is also very faithful, a resource stated. He has no wish to leave Cincinnati.”
Inexperienced, 30, has persistently been 1 of the leading receivers in football, even though accidents confined him to just 10 game titles in the 2016 period and only nine game titles in 2018. He nevertheless caught 46 passes for 694 yards and 6 touchdowns, nonetheless, and has posted at minimum 1,000 getting yards in 6 of his 8 seasons.
He would be a big upgrade for the Jets, who relied on wideout Robby Anderson (50 catches for 752 yards and 6 touchdowns) and restricted conclude Chris Herndon (39 receptions for 502 yards and four scores) in the passing recreation a period back.
Equally are reliable players who will have a part with the Jets going forward, but neither is a dynamic, star receiver a younger quarterback like Darnold wants.
As for other wants on offense, Hughes reported that the Jets are “undeniably the preferred” to indication celebrity working back Le’Veon Bell, though Tevin Coleman is yet another alternative the crew has its sights on.
As for other receivers, Hughes reported: “Continue to keep an eye on Donte Moncrief and Danny Amendola when the new league yr starts, along with Cowboys receiver Cole Beasley.”
Darnold wants weapons, and it really is really hard to imagine the Jets is not going to increase some in free agency and the draft. Inexperienced just probable is not going to be amid them.
