The New York Jets Should Trade for DeSean Jackson

What would a potential trade cost?

Al Bello

Over the past few weeks, there have been considerable rumors that DeSean Jackson is on his way out in Philadelphia. The playmaker is apparently not a personality fit with Chip Kelly, which is why they are looking to deal him to another team.

I would propose the New York Jets trade one of their two fourth round picks for Jackson, and fill out their starting wide receiving corps. Jackson would be an immediate fit, as he has considerable experience in Marty Mornhinweg's system, and a starting trio of Jackson, Eric Decker, and Jeremy Kerley is a considerable improvement on last year's receivers. You have speed, size, and reliability.

However, I wouldn't stop there; I'd still look to draft a receiver and a tight end like Jace Amaro. That would give the team a receiving corps of Jackson, Decker, Kerley, [insert draft pick], Stephen Hill, and David Nelson. In addition, you'd have the receiving threats of Amaro and Jeff Cumberland. I think we can all agree that has the potential to be a potent passing attack. Good luck covering all those receivers.

What do you think? What would you be willing to give up for Jackson?
