4. NY Jets Trade Target: Kyle Fuller, CB, Denver Broncos

Another player that the Jets should have tried a bit harder to pursue in the offseason, Kyle Fuller hasn't had the impact with the Denver Broncos that most people thought he would have.

With the drafting of Patrick Surtain II in the first round, the notion around the league would be that Denver would have a truly lockdown secondary.

However, that isn't exactly the case. Kyle Fuller has been keeping the Broncos' bench warm for the last two weeks, meaning that the dream duo of Fuller and Surtain is likely dead before the deadline.

You could chalk it up to poor play, or just head coach Vic Fangio pointing fingers to help save his job in Denver.

The hardest part about trading for Fuller would be taking on the money still due to him. And the fact that such a contract can't find its way onto the field is also a bit unnerving.

But the secondary on the Jets is heavily inexperienced. Saleh and Douglas have repeatedly expressed their faith in a youthful team defending the pass.

That faith should be in question.

It's one thing to be dedicated to your players and have confidence in them. The problem comes when that dedication turns into stubbornness.

Making these trades likely won't right the ship for some miracle playoff push. However, helping the development of your players should be the highest priority for both head coach and general manager.

It's likely the Jets will get busy come the trade deadline. It just depends on if they will be buyers or sellers.
