The New York Jets already made some moves by signing wide receiver Rishard Matthews. Even that is not enough as they must trade for Demaryius Thomas before it is too late.
The New York Jets are looking to add another star and a key addition to solidify and strengthen their already improving and pretty decent offense, led by rookie quarterback Sam Darnold. At this point in time, they just signed wide receiver Rishard Matthews but even that is not enough.
Trading for another offensive threat only makes sense, which means that if the Jets traded for top wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, it would for sure be a win-win situation resulting in more offensive production.
Of course, a trade involves giving something up, therefore giving the Denver Broncos a mid-round draft pick would be very reasonable and fair. The Jets need to have Darnold connect with a receiver who can in return allow him to flourish as well. This season, Thomas’s stats are as follows: 33 receptions, 372 yards, and three touchdowns.

Adding Thomas would mean all the more optimism giving Darnold another chance to go off and have himself a few more big games if he to Thomas was a sure thing. With a receiver of such caliber and the huge potential Darnold shows and possesses even though this season is not a magnificent one, this potential trade could work wonders in the Jets favor for the future.
Thomas is a smart veteran and has a lot of experience both in the NFL Playoffs and winning a Super Bowl championship. He’s the kind of player that not only would tremendously help in Darnold’s development but also that of Robby Anderson and other young receivers on the Jets.
All in all, the Jets have nothing to lose and everything to gain by throwing names and ideas looking to solidify all areas of their team. Adding Thomas to the mix may or may not work out in the end, but he definitely shows a ton of reasons for the Jets to take a chance on him, even if it’s just for a year or two.
