In the latest episode of The Jet Press Podcast, Justin Fried and Mike Luciano discuss the NY Jets being selected for "Hard Knocks," the Asante Samuel drama, and Jets players who could be traded this summer.

The conversation began with the biggest news of the day: the Jets being selected to appear on "Hard Knocks." Despite the team's strong opposition, the NFL has chosen the Jets to be this summer's "Hard Knocks" team.

Is this a good thing or a bad thing for the Jets? Will "Hard Knocks" prove to be a distraction for Aaron Rodgers and company, or will the Jets return to the postseason for the first time since their last appearance on the show?

Justin and Mike each offered very different opinions on the Jets' "Hard Knocks" assignment. Who do you agree with?

The "Hard Knocks" announcement wasn't the only news in Jets land this week. Former All-Pro cornerback Asante Samuel's beef with both Sauce Gardner and Darrelle Revis on Tuesday garnered plenty of headlines.

Justin and Mike ranted about Samuel's misguided criticism and even called him out on his hypocrisy. Very few kind words were said about the former NFL cornerback.

Finally, we discussed a collection of Jets players who could be traded this summer. From Bryce Huff to Bryce Hall and even C.J. Uzomah, Justin and Mike analyzed a few players who could be on the move in the coming weeks.
