The NY Jets suddenly have a hole at the wide receiver position following the shocking retirement of veteran Corey Davis. While the team's current wide receiver room is passable, Davis' absence isn't one that should be overlooked.

The former Tennessee Titans first-round pick was an outstanding run-blocker and an underrated part of the Jets' offense. Despite his injury issues over the last two seasons, you could very easily make the argument that he was the second-best wideout on the Jets' roster (even if he wasn't going to be used that way).

Options are limited for the Jets at this stage of the offseason, but Davis' retirement does give the team an additional $10 million in cap space. They should have no shortage of money to make a move if the opportunity arises.

From superstar additions to under-the-radar trade candidates, let's take a look at seven wide receivers the Jets could trade for following Davis' stunning retirement.

7. The NY Jets could trade for Anthony Schwartz

We'll start with a few low-profile players the Jets could trade for, including Cleveland Browns speedster Anthony Schwartz. Schwartz has failed to carve out a significant role in the Browns' offense since being drafted in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft.

He's hauled in just 14 catches for 186 yards over the first two years of his career and finds himself on the roster bubble entering the 2023 season. It might be time for a change of scenery.

Schwartz is one of the fastest players in the NFL, as he ran a blazing 4.27 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine. Unfortunately, he's battled injuries with the Browns and could be looking for a new team in the near future.

Schwartz wouldn't be anything more than a low-cost dart throw, but his speed and natural physical gifts are evident. He's a realistic trade candidate to keep an eye on.
