Jets would "absolutely" consider trading down in draft

The Jets considering trading down at the draft proves they're- gasp!- making the right moves

The Jets considering trading down at the draft proves they're- gasp!- making the right moves

The Jets have the No. 3 pick in the 2019 National Football League draft, a pick that would be flawless for them if they needed a quarterback. But the latest quotes from general manager Mike Maccagnan prove it.

The Jets traded up from No. 6 to No. 3 past year to select Sam Darnold. This time around, they could take the opposite approach. The trade with the Indianapolis Colts cost the Jets the No. 6 overall pick, two second-round picks and a 2019 second-round pick.

"I think when you think back to past year - I think I may have said this before in other settings with you guys - we felt very good about trying to position ourselves at three and part of it was what we'd have to give them in terms of compensation", Maccagnan said. The Jets assumed the Giants would have demanded their 2019 first-round pick, and they didn't want to part with it. It would be an interesting scenario filled with posturing, but a draft day trade between the two might make sense - at least in these early stages.

Jason Witten rejoining Cowboys after year as broadcaster
On Thursday, the Dallas Cowboys announced that Jason Witten is coming out of retirement to play for them once more in 2019. But the Cowboys returned to the playoffs after missing the season before he stepped away.

Depending on how things shake out in free agency, the Giants and the Jets may very well find themselves in a situation where they could benefit each other.

If they stay at three, the Jets could have their choice of defensive end Nick Bosa, defensive tackle Quinnen Williams or outside linebacker Josh Allen, the consensus top non-quarterbacks in the draft. "If there's an opportunity for us to move back and acquire more picks, that's something we'd definitely be potentially interested in".
