With only two days until the draft, the Jets are trying to trade Clemens for a late-round draft pick, league sources have told ESPNNewYork.com. If they can't trade him -- and it will be difficult -- the Jets are prepared to release the former second-round pick.
With Mike Holmgren calling the shots instead of Eric Mangini now in Cleveland, it seems like a long shot the Jets will find any takers. If a team wants to use a late round pick on a quarterback, it might as well select a rookie with potential instead of a proven non entity.
If the Jets can find a taker, that extra pick could be currency to help a trade up.
