New York Jets
Quandre Diggs going to the Jets would be a cruel bit of irony, wouldn’t it? Seattle traded for Jamal Adams before the 2020 season but the best safety on the Seahawks the last two years has probably been Diggs so him choosing to leave Seattle for New York would hurt. There are already predictions this will happen.
In 2021, the Jets were atrocious against the pass. New York ranked 31st in QBR-allowed (103.2), was 26th in passes defended (61) and was 31st in interceptions (7). Part of the issue was that the Jets had a bunch of injuries at safety as Marcus Maye was limited to 6 games and only one safety was able to start double-digit games.
Diggs is expected to be healthy enough to play the majority, if not all, of the 2022 season and he has the talent to help transform the Jets pass defense into a decent unit. In the last two years combined, Jets safeties have 6 interceptions as a group. Diggs has 10 by himself.
What New York has really needed the last two years is a free safety so trading Jamal Adams hurts them less than had New York had Diggs on the roster instead of Adams and the Jets traded Diggs. Diggs would have an immediate positive impact on a Jets locker room that currently has a culture of losing but Diggs would instantly make New York better on the field too.
