The NY Jets went into the offseason eyeing change following an abysmal 2-14 finish a year ago. And now that the dust has settled, it's safe to say that change has been accomplished.

The overhaul started with the coaching staff as Adam Gase and his staff were jettisoned and replaced by Robert Saleh and a new group of coaches.

It continued with an eventful free agency period that saw the team land the likes of Carl Lawson, Corey Davis, and others. And, of course, the inevitable finally occurred when the Jets shipped Sam Darnold to Carolina and started over at the quarterback position.

The 2021 NFL Draft saw the Jets add players like Zach Wilson, Alijah Vera-Tucker, and Elijah Moore — all of whom should play key roles both this season and in the future.

Yes, the Jets accomplished the change they were targeting. But even as we approach mid-June, they could still make another move or two to fully usher in a new era.

Many have their eyes on the free-agent market whether it's a veteran cornerback such as Richard Sherman or Steven Nelson or a backup QB like Nick Mullens. But that's not the only way the Jets could make changes to their roster.

The Jets could also explore the trade market — either to trade away one of their own players or to acquire someone from another team.

But what are some realistic trades that could happen over the coming weeks and months? We take a look at four trades the Jets could explore this summer.
