New York Jets Expected To Make Blockbuster Trade This Offseason
The New York Jets are expected to make a huge QB decision at the position this offseason, whether it’s with a QB already on the roster or selecting one in the 2021 NFL Draft.
The Jets played well enough down the stretch to get out of the No. 1 overall pick with back-to-back wins and know for sure they won’t be getting Trevor Lawrence.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Jets will now decide if they want to stick with Sam Darnold or draft a quarterback at No. 2. If they choose the former, they will likely trade the second overall pick.
Justin Fields pretty much solified his stance at being the No. 2 overall pick as he picked off the Clemson Tigers with ease on Friday night. However, he did suffer a rib injury during that game could only get worse with one more game against the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Fields completed 22-of-28 passes for 385 yards with six touchdowns and an interception in the 49-28 win. He also rushed eight times for 42 yards.
