4. The NY Jets can trade for D.K. Metcalf

There's been no actual indication that the Seattle Seahawks are looking to trade D.K. Metcalf, but following the departure of Russell Wilson, there's speculation that Seattle could be looking to clean house.

At just 24-years-old, Metcalf is one of the best young wide receivers in the NFL and someone who has recorded 900 or more receiving yards in all three years of his career.

Any trade would have to be accompanied by a new contract extension, but the Jets have the financial flexibility to get a deal done. This is absolutely an opportunity they should explore if the Seahawks are willing to talk.

3. The NY Jets can trade for Tyler Lockett

Metcalf isn't the only Seahawks wide receiver who could be shopped, however. In fact, Tyler Lockett might even be a more reasonable trade target for the Jets or any other team.

The 29-year-old is coming off his third consecutive 1,000-yard season and is just what the Jets need in their offense. Lockett is a former All-Pro who has missed just two games in seven years while putting up fantastic numbers.

The Seahawks might be more willing to trade Lockett too given his age. The tricky part would be that they wouldn't actually save any cap space (they'd lose money) if he were traded before June 1st.

The trade would have to be processed after that date, but there's always a workaround as the two teams could agree to the deal in principle beforehand. Keep an eye on Lockett if the Seahawks are truly looking to sell.
