1. The NY Jets can trade for Robert Woods

One new name that joined the wide receiver rumor mill on Thursday was Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Robert Woods. Following the addition of Allen Robinson in free agency, Woods is reportedly a "prime candidate" to be traded this offseason.

The 29-year-old is sure to have his fair share of suitors as, even coming off a torn ACL, he's been one of the most productive receivers in football over the last four years.

Woods was on pace for his fourth consecutive 900-plus-yard campaign in 2021 before a torn ACL cut his season short. That injury might not have a serious effect on his trade market though.

A second-round pick of the Buffalo Bills in the 2013 NFL Draft, Woods never broke out in Buffalo and it wasn't until he joined the Rams that his talents were finally maximized.

Woods put together back-to-back seasons of at least 1,100 yards in both 2018 and 2019 serving as one of the focal points of the Rams' offense. Even in a loaded skill position group, Woods still found ways to be productive.

Given his age, it's hard to imagine Woods would take more than an early Day 3 pick (or late Day 2 at most) to get a deal done. That's a trade package the Jets should be all over.

The Jets are committed to surrounding Zach Wilson with as much talent as possible in 2022. Trading for Robert Woods would certainly help matters.
