According to Adam Schefter, at least two teams have contacted the Jets about possibly trading for Wilkerson:

Wilkerson is one of the best players on the roster, if not the best. Wilkerson is also entering the final year of his contract and is set for a massive pay-day at some point. The Jets have expressed an interest in signing Mo to a big extension and as far as we're aware, Wilkerson is happy in New York.

It's draft season, as such it's silly season. However teams will make calls, we can't stop anyone from picking up the phone to ask about the Wilkerson situation. We can control telling them where to go when they do.

I don't expect the Jets to trade Wilkerson during the draft, and if they did, it would have to be for a kings ransom and some.

Why don't we play the What If game though. If the Jets did decide to trade Mo for a couple of very high picks this year and some more down the line, would you be happy taking the draft selections and slotting Richardson and Coples in as our starting DE pairing?

Personally I'll keep Mo.
