2. The NY Jets could trade for WR Brandon Aiyuk

The third and final potential wide receiver trade target on this list is also the most recent to pop up in trade rumors. San Francisco 49ers star Brandon Aiyuk appears unhappy with his current situation following the team's loss in Super Bowl LVIII.

Aiyuk is not only looking for a hefty contract extension as he enters the final year of his rookie deal but he's suggested that he's determined to play for a winning team. Perhaps the possibility of playing with Aaron Rodgers in New York could appeal to the All-Pro wideout.

Aiyuk has developed into one of the best deep threats in the NFL, averaging a whopping 17.9 yards per reception in 2023. He finished this past season with 75 catches for a career-high 1,342 yards and seven touchdowns.

The Jets will explore every possible avenue to bolster their wide receiver room this offseason. If the 49ers do actually make Aiyuk available, the Jets will undoubtedly be involved in his trade market.

1. The NY Jets could trade for OT Cam Robinson

The No. 1 priority for the Jets this offseason will be to fix their offensive line. Unfortunately, good offensive linemen are hard to come by, and the trade market isn't exactly overflowing with possible targets.

One above-average starting lineman who could be on the move this offseason, though, is Jacksonville Jaguars left tackle Cam Robinson. Robinson is entering the final year of his contract in 2024, but the Jaguars can save over $16 million by releasing or trading him this offseason.

The former second-round pick has allowed just eight total sacks over the last three seasons, developing into a quality starting left tackle. At just 28 years old, he's a much more appealing target than some of the injury-riddled, veteran targets on the market.

The Jets can't really afford to take a chance on a player like Tyron Smith or David Bakhtiari. Robinson provides a similar upside at this stage and comes with fewer injury risks, even if he did miss eight games in 2023 due to a knee injury.
