Jets Rumors: Falcons Looking to Move Up?

Kevin C. Cox

Pro Football Central says the Falcons and the Jets have been talking about a potential trade.

The Falcons seem like a less attractive trade partner than a team like the 49ers. San Francisco could give up picks 31 and 34. Atlanta could give up 30, but would probably have to give up either a 2014 first rounder or a late second round pick to make a trade work, although it would be worth the Jets' while if they could get both a 2013 second rounder and a 2014 first rounder.

This is all preliminary. The Jets will probably want to see how the board falls and make sure there is no player they really want. Similarly, Atlanta will want to make sure the player they want is there. This seems to be laying the groundwork in case the stars line up.
