This is another one that I doubt happens, but given everything that's happened with Elijah Moore over the last six months, it's absolutely a scenario worth discussing.

Moore entered the 2022 season looking to pick up where he left off the previous year. The former Ole Miss standout put together an impressive six-game stretch as a rookie that had many excited about his future with the team.

With Moore and Garrett Wilson, the Jets hoped to have one of the best young wide receiver duos in the NFL, but while Wilson soared to a Rookie of the Year campaign, Moore was one of the season's biggest disappointments.

The 22-year-old wideout was a relative non-factor in the Jets' offense early in the season, and his numbers were plagued by inconsistent quarterback play — so much so that he shockingly demanded a trade in October.

The Jets never followed through on that trade request, and following a brief benching, Moore found some more success with Mike White under center. It seems as though the two sides have mended their relationship, but his future remains uncertain.

Thomas Christopher of Jets X Factor recently explored the possibility of a Moore trade this offseason, insisting that it was more likely he was traded them kept long-term.

I still think it's more likely the Jets keep Moore, especially with Corey Davis and Braxton Berrios possibly on the move this offseason, but a trade isn't out of the conversation.
