New York Jets
The New York Jets currently hold the number 4 and number 10 overall picks in this year’s NFL Draft. If the Jets decide to trade their young quarterback, Zach Wilson, with either the 4th pick or the 10th pick (or maybe even both picks) to get Russell Wilson, will we see a Wilson for Wilson swap?
This move sounds promising. While the Jets definitely have the cap space to be able to take on Russ Wilson’s salary, the Seahawks on the other hand will acquire a promising sophomore quarterback who threw for 2,334 yards and 9 touchdowns with 11 interceptions in his rookie year.
Those are not staggering numbers but Zach Wilson flashed some brilliance this season, not only with his arms but also with his legs.
If this trade moves forward it will not set the Seattle Seahawks far back from their competition. Yes, it will be difficult to replace Russell Wilson, however, freeing up some cap space and being able to draft good quality players early in this year’s draft can exponentially help the team in immediately fixing some challenges and be a worthy contender not only this year but in years to come.
