4. The NY Jets could trade for Joshua Dobbs

Joshua Dobbs is no stranger to fall trades as the former fourth-round pick was shipped to the Jacksonville Jaguars prior to the start of the 2019 season in exchange for a fifth-round pick.

Ultimately, Dobbs would be released the following year before being claimed off waivers by the same team that drafted him a few years earlier — the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Now Dobbs finds himself battling for the third-string quarterback job in Pittsburgh with former first-round pick Dwayne Haskins.

Is Dobbs the most appealing or experienced option out there? Not necessarily, but there's a decent chance he could be looking for a new team this fall and the Jets make some sense.

Dobbs has more NFL experience than both White and Morgan and the Steelers remain high on him. After all, there's a reason the Jaguars shipped a fifth-round pick to Pittsburgh to acquire him back in 2019.

They genuinely believed in him.

It's likely that this wouldn't take any more than a future late-round pick at most and it is a route the Jets could take, even if it's not the most appealing.

Would Dobbs be an upgrade over what the Jets have? Probably. But there are better options available.
