The NY Jets are in the market for a quarterback this offseason, and they aren't going to be bargain-bin shopping. Team owner Woody Johnson has already come out and said that he's prepared to spend big on a QB this offseason.

The Jets have been searching for a potential long-term quarterback solution for what feels like decades at this point. Perhaps this offseason is the year they finally find it. At the very least, a short-term solution is required.

The team will have its fair share of options when it comes to addressing the quarterback position this offseason, but not many are actually realistic and/or appealing.

Free agency or even the 2023 NFL Draft could be avenues the Jets explore, but for the purpose of this piece, let's take a look at four quarterbacks the Jets could target in a trade this offseason.

4. The NY Jets could trade for Jared Goff

Jared Goff proved a lot of people wrong in his second season in Detroit. The former No. 1 overall pick was seen as a fringe starter entering the year and was essentially little more than a bridge quarterback for the organization.

That was until he put together one of the best seasons of his career and finished as a legitimate top-15 quarterback in the league. Now, it seems as though the Lions are prepared to run it back with Goff for at least another year.

Goff lands on this list because, if he is actually made available, the Jets should absolutely be interested. The 28-year-old QB threw for 4,438 yards, 29 touchdowns, and only seven interceptions while completing over 65 percent of his passes and averaging 7.6 yards per attempt in 2022.

The problem is that it seems unlikely the Lions part ways with Goff, despite his hefty cap hit. Goff played himself into a starting role in Detroit in 2023, but if he's made available for whatever reason, the Jets should jump at the opportunity.
