Perhaps no position group on the NY Jets' roster is more stacked than the team's defensive line, but while that's good news for the franchise as a whole, it might not be great news for one Bryce Huff.
Huff is a rumored trade candidate for the Jets entering the summer, with the former undrafted free agent buried on the team's depth chart. That's why Brad Spielberger of Pro Football Focus recently suggested the Jets could send Huff packing to the Chicago Bears.
In an article detailing one move every team should make prior to the start of the 2023 season, Spielberger insisted the Bears should trade for Huff to sure up their pass-rush corps.
Huff was one of the most efficient pass rushers in football last season, but as it stands right now, he projects as a likely healthy scratch on game days in a healthy Jets defensive line group. Don't be surprised if the Jets trade him before the season starts.

Jets have one of the least passionate fan bases?
You can say what you want about the Jets' fan base, but one thing that you probably can't say is that they aren't passionate. Don't tell that to the crew over at The 33rd Team, however.
The 33rd Team posted an image to Twitter on Sunday, ranking all 32 NFL fan bases in order of how passionate they are. The ranking was created through the use of the ChatGPI AI program, so it should be taken with a grain of salt.
The AI ranked the Jets' fan base a disrespectful 30th out of 32 teams, behind fan bases such as the Houston Texans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tennessee Titans, and Los Angeles Rams. The only teams worse were the Jacksonville Jaguars (another questionable ranking) and the Los Angeles Chargers.
Needless to say, the post has received plenty of criticism. The Jets may not have found a ton of success in recent years, but their fan base is objectively one of the more passionate in the NFL. This list is embarrassing.
Garrett Wilson is the Jets' 'most promising building block'
Bleacher Report's Alex Ballentine recently released an article listing the "most promising building block" for every NFL team, and for the Jets, wide receiver Garrett Wilson was chosen.
Ballentine highlighted Wilson as one of the biggest reasons Aaron Rodgers decided he wanted to play for the Jets this offseason. That alone might earn him this honor.
Of course, there are a number of other Jets players that could have been considered. Everyone from Sauce Gardner to Quinnen Williams to Breece Hall to Alijah Vera-Tucker could have been selected without anyone batting an eye.
That's a testament to a Jets roster that is as young as it is talented. Garrett Wilson is a prime example of that.
