1. NY Jets trade target: DK Metcalf

When the Seattle Seahawks traded Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos earlier in the offseason, rumors immediately began to emerge that Seattle could undergo somewhat of a fire sale.

Many began to speculate that players like DK Metcalf or Tyler Lockett could be on the move with Wilson now out of town. But to this point, those discussions have been little more than speculation.

Much like with Brown and McLaurin, there's been no indication that the Seahawks are looking to trade Metcalf — or Lockett for that matter. That hasn't stopped teams from calling, though.

There have been reports that teams like the Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs have inquired about the availability of Seattle's young star wide receiver. The Seahawks aren't hanging up either — they're reportedly "open to listening to offers."

If the Seahawks truly are open to listening, the Jets absolutely need to start placing calls.

The 24-year-old wideout has finished with 900 or more receiving yards in all three of his NFL seasons to this point, and it's worth noting that he likely hasn't reached his ceiling yet either.

Metcalf is a physical freak who would do wonders for the development of Zach Wilson and someone who could potentially thrive as a much-needed downfield threat in this Jets offense.

Joe Douglas has had success trading with the Seahawks in the past. If Seahawks general manager John Schneider doesn't have Douglas' number blocked, the Jets should be calling.
