2. K.J. Osborn, WR, Minnesota Vikings

Another under-the-radar wide receiver trade target who hasn't been discussed much is K.J. Osborn. Much like with Ezra Cleveland, Osborn probably made more sense before the Vikings' mini-winning streak, but he's still worth mentioning.

Osborn is one of the most underrated YAC receivers in the NFL, and he's also an important part of Minnesota's ground game as a willing run blocker. He has the versatility to play both outside and in the slot as well.

There's no denying that Osborn would be an upgrade over Randall Cobb as the Jets' WR3, although it remains to be seen if the Vikings will part with him. Osborn is set to be a free agent in the offseason, but the Vikings are winning games, and Justin Jefferson's injury complicates matters.

If Osborn is available, the Jets should absolutely be making calls to the Vikings. His skill set would be a perfect fit in this Jets offense.

1. Daniel Brunskill, OL, Tennessee Titans

The Jets may have lost Alijah Vera-Tucker for the season, but they might have an opportunity to add AVT-lite in the form of Tennessee Titans offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill.

Full disclosure: Brunskill is one of my favorite players in the NFL. He has experience playing all five offensive line positions and has more than held his own at every spot. After four years with the San Francisco 49ers, Brunskill signed with the Titans this offseason.

Brunskill has started all six games at right guard for the Titans this season, but with Tennessee potentially selling at the deadline, he is the first player I'd be making calls about.

Brunskill can help provide depth at all five offensive line spots and start pretty much anywhere the Jets ask him to. As the Jets saw with Vera-Tucker, that type of versatility is invaluable to an NFL team. He deserves to play for a team that has a chance to compete this season.
