When Darrelle Revis was placed on Injured Reserve (IR) earlier this week, I immediately thought, "How is the team going to replace him?"
I searched through the great depths of free agency, researched in an attempt to find any possibly cap-saving cuts, and I looked to see if Ty Law wanted to come back, but no success. I then looked to the trade market.
The trade market is very rich this season; multiple teams are learning the hard way that expensive contract extensions don’t always produce championships. The Jets, although cash-strapped, may somehow shell out all of the money to take in one or two of these guys.
But more than just a nice cornerback or two being dealt at the deadline, many skill players whom the Jets need may be shipped out in a few weeks. A team as desperate as the Jets should be looking at every available player.
Obviously, the Jets would need to clear a lot of money for these guys, and some of them may bolt after the season, but the Jets have a lot of needs, and the team is at the point where they want to win now.
So with that in mind, let’s take a look at some possible fix-ins for the New York Jets.
