At 5-3, the NY Jets could look to make an addition or two to their roster prior to Tuesday's trade deadline. The team already went out and traded for running back James Robinson shortly following the season-ending injury to rookie Breece Hall.

General manager Joe Douglas has shown that he's more than willing to make a move if the price is right. This Jets team has a roster that's built to make a playoff push this season. If anything, most would expect the Jets to be buyers.

That said, Douglas is never one to turn down a good deal. This Jets roster is deep and there might be a few players who could find new homes within the next 24 hours or so.

Let's take a look at five Jets players who could be on the move at the trade deadline.

5. Jacob Martin, DE, NY Jets

It's hard to imagine any team in the NFL has a deeper defensive line than the Jets. Jacob Martin is one of 11 defensive linemen currently on the Jets' roster, and while his impact hasn't been quite as significant as some of his teammates, he's still a good player.

Martin was signed to a three-year, $13.5 million contract this past offseason, and the former sixth-round pick has been a regular staple in the defensive end rotation. He's played 28 percent of the Jets' defensive snaps this season and has recorded 1.5 sacks through eight games.

The Jets have a logjam at the position and moving Martin might free up more snaps for other players who have provided more of an impact. Rookie first-round pick Jermaine Johnson was left inactive this past week partially due to this exact logjam, per head coach Robert Saleh.

Bryce Huff was inactive for the first three weeks of the season. Vinny Curry and Micheal Clemons could be left inactive once Johnson is fully healthy. Trading Martin would help solve that issue and net the Jets some draft compensation in the process.
