The NY Jets could very well be one of the most active teams at the trade deadline this year. They likely won't be in the business of buying, however, at least not to a major degree.

At 1-4 and with a roster rebuild in full swing, the Jets aren't looking to compete in 2021. The organization's eyes are squarely on the future as opposed to what the team could do this year.

That means they'll likely be looking to part ways with players they don't see as a part of that future. Simply put, if they could acquire assets for a player who won't be on the roster next year, they'll jump at the opportunity.

Just look at last year for evidence of how general manager Joe Douglas handles the trade deadline.

The likes of Steve McLendon, Avery Williamson, and Jordan Willis were all dealt within a few weeks of each other signaling a new direction for the franchise.

Expect a similar approach this season.

On the surface, there might not be more than a couple of obvious players the Jets could look to trade over the next few weeks. But don't overlook the potential surprise trade or two.

After all, did anyone expect Jordan Willis to be dealt a year ago? Douglas might have a few tricks up his sleeve.

With the deadline approaching on November 2, let's take a look at five logical players the Jets could look to trade.
