Report: Jets are ‘determined’ to trade down in draft
The New York Jets hold the third pick in the NFL Draft, but it certainly doesn’t sound like they intend to use it.
According to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY, the Jets appear “determined” to move down from No. 3. The team’s goal is believed to be to at least recoup the second-round pick they gave up last year when they traded up to select quarterback Sam Darnold.
“They seem to really, really want to move down,” one NFL executive told Vacchiano. “Maybe they’re just keeping their options open, but it sure seems like that No. 3 pick is for sale.”
General manager Mike Maccagnan has made no secret of the fact that the Jets are ready and willing to discuss trading down. Judging by this report, it sounds like they may be downright eager to do it, and they could be very active leading up to the draft.
