5 Ideal Trade Scenarios for the New York Jets This Offseason

There are so many sensible trades in the NFL, it's a surprise that almost none of them are made. Most trades occur during the draft, or right around it. 

I believe the New York Jets' two best assets to include in any trade scenario is Antonio Cromartie and Santonio Holmes.

Yes, Cromartie, part of the dynamic cornerback duo the Jets gave a contract to before last season.

He is tradeable because second-year cornerback Kyle Wilson was much improved last season. Wilson could come into the starting role left by Cromartie and would provide not much drop off, if any.

As a third CB, Wilson had 41 tackles, two interceptions and six pass defenses. As a starter, Cromartie had 45 tackles, four interceptions and 12 pass defenses.

Cromartie also was out of position at times last season, causing him to get burned by opposing receivers and was called for a number of pass interference calls.

If the Jets can get a player that can provide some much needed help on the offense side, it would make sense to deal him.

Trading Santonio Holmes to get something back should be self explanatory by now, with his well-reported clash with Mark Sanchez.

If you can convince a team to take him off your hands, you have to try, right?

Then again, who knows—maybe the two valentines have worked everything out already.

The last big trade the Jets made was during the 2009 draft when they traded their 17th and 52nd picks, along with Bret Ratliff, Keyon Coleman and Abram Elam to move up to move up 12 spots to select Sanchez.

In 2010, it only cost the Jets a fifth rounder to get Santonio Holmes from the Pittsburgh Steelers. Last season, they sent Derrick Mason to the Houston Texans for a conditional draft pick in October.

Here are five trade scenarios that are ideal—which means they would probably never happen, but it's fun to try.
