NFL: New York Jets at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

There was rampant speculation on Tuesday afternoon about the Jets potentially making another trade after the team dealt Leonard Williams to the Giants on Monday.

Speculation centered around Robby Anderson, Le’Veon Bell, and Jamal Adams. The rumors around Adams broke late in the afternoon as the All Pro safety was linked to the Dallas Cowboys.

Ultimately the Jets did not move any of their remaining players.

I will admit there was a point in the afternoon that I got hopeful. The thought of infusing Draft capital into this team was exciting. Ultimately, the deals were nowhere close to being completed.

Many expected Anderson to be dealt. The asking price suggests he might be in the Jets’ plans going forward. The compensation the Jets were seeking wasn’t very realistic. If they were actually motivated to move Robby, they probably would have lowered it. Now we can look to see whether some sort of extension will be worked out.

For Adams, the Jets rightly asked for a ton. The Cowboys didn’t seem serious with their offer.

It isn’t worth trading Adams if the only offers are lowballs.
