Could The Jets Make A Move For This Six-Time Pro Bowler?

The 2023 season was a lost year for this Jets team, but that doesn’t mean it has to be a complete waste. New York must learn from their mistakes and do what they can to correct the issues heading into next season.

Besides a backup quarterback and the offensive line, another huge hole that this team needs to improve on is at wide receiver. There are some notable receivers set to become free agents this offseason, like Buccanneers' Mike Evans, Bengals' Tee Higgins, and Colts' Michael Pittman Jr. to name a few, but could the Jets be looking at a trade to help their needs?

Reuniting Old Teammates

If the Jets decided to add some talent alongside Garrett Wilson via the trade market, then one name comes to mind: Davante Adams. Last week, Jets’ punter Thomas Morstead gave up his No. 5 jersey to Garrett Wilson so that the Jets’ second-year receiver could return to the number he wore at Ohio State. This freed up No. 17, thus reigniting the rumors that Adams could end up a Jet this offseason.

Before spending the last two seasons on the Raiders, Davante Adams spent eight years in Green Bay with Aaron Rodgers. During that span, Adams averaged 83.6 receptions, 1015.1 receiving yards, and 9.1 touchdowns a season. He was also selected to five straight Pro Bowls and made the All-Pro team twice.  

New York is sticking with Nathaniel Hackett as their offensive coordinator and when Adams was a part of Hackett’s offense during Rodgers’ back-to-back MVP seasons in Green Bay, he totaled 238 receptions for 2,927 yards and 29 touchdowns. There's no denying the chemistry that these two players have built with each other over the years.

Rodgers and Adams even got together in Las Vegas this year when the Jets played the Raiders in Week 10.

However, Gang Green did not have a good track record last season when they signed a couple of Rodgers’ former teammates. Wide receivers Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb did not produce greatly in 2023. Cobb wasn't expected to do much but got moved up the depth chart when WR Corey Davis retired before the season began and WR/KR Mecole Hardman was traded at the deadline. Meanwhile, after signing a four-year, $44 million deal with the Jets in free agency, Lazard only contributed 311 yards and one touchdown on 23 receptions.

With that being said, you have to think adding Davante Adams will be a different story. As long as the deal is reasonable, I don’t see why the Jets wouldn't be interested in going after a guy like Adams. Time will tell how this situation plays out but even at the age of 32, Adams has accomplished too much in his career to overlook, especially if he ends up wanting out of Las Vegas.
