The NY Jets are preparing to go all-in on the 2024 season. The current regime is fully aware of what is at stake this year. The Jets need to win. They need to not only end their 13-year playoff drought, but they need to be legitimate Super Bowl contenders.

That was the expectation when the organization traded for Aaron Rodgers last spring. An untimely Achilles injury temporarily delayed the team's Super Bowl aspirations, but Rodgers' impending return in 2024 reignites those dreams.

But if the Jets are going to establish themselves as true Super Bowl contenders going into next season, they're going to need to make some major offseason moves.

While not all of these trades are the most realistic transactions, each of them would give the Jets a real chance to push for a Super Bowl run in 2024.

5. The NY Jets could trade for WR Davante Adams

Let's get this one out of the way first. The Las Vegas Raiders don't have any plans to trade Davante Adams at this time, and Adams seems to be content staying with the organization he reportedly wanted out of just a few months ago.

But if there's any chance at all that Adams is moved this offseason, the Jets are the most likely destination. Not only will general manager Joe Douglas be aggressive in the wide receiver market, but Adams' close personal ties to Aaron Rodgers make the Jets an obvious landing spot.

Adams is fresh off his fourth consecutive 1,100-yard season in 2023, finishing the year with 103 catches for 1,144 yards and eight touchdowns despite some less-than-stellar quarterback play.

Adams would give the Jets likely the best wide receiver duo in the NFL when paired with Garrett Wilson. If the six-time Pro Bowler becomes available at any point, expect the Jets to be aggressive in their pursuit.
