Good morning, GGN! I hope you’re all having a great start to the day. Shout out to Mr. Wells for holding down the fort over the weekend as usual. Over the weekend a major trade went down between the Lions and Rams, sending Matt Stafford to Los Angeles in exchange for two future 1st round picks, a 2021 3rd, and Jared Goff.

The instant reaction from Jets’ fan was that this meant the team would have to give up much more to acquire Deshaun Watson from the Houston Texans. While this thinking is understandable, it’s not necessarily true. The Detroit Lions did the Rams a big favor taking on Jared Goff’s contract, which is part of the reason L.A. sent over those picks to go along with Goff to begin with. This wouldn’t be the scenario with a Deshaun Watson trade. There’s reason to believe a similar trade could be done to acquire Watson, without giving up the entire future of the team to do so. The Texans may not make that trade, but if the disgruntled QB continues to carry on the optics of ‘wanting out’ of Houston, their hand may be forced. Hopefully this ends up going positively for the Jets whichever way it shakes out down the road. With that, here are your links to the team today.
