Yes, the Jets need a receiver, but it's the deepest receiver draft in years, and they can find a good one in the second round. This would mark the fifth straight year with a defensive pick in Round 1.

Jets Still Hope To Trade Kellen Clemens Jetsfan0099 called it first

With Mark Sanchez locked in as the starting quarterback and Mark Brunell secure as the No. 2, the New York Jets don't have much use for Kellen Clemens.

So Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com reports that when the Jets gave Clemens ample playing time in the preseason opener, it wasn't about getting him reps with the Jets' receivers. It was about showcasing him for a trade.

The Jets tried to trade Clemens before the draft and couldn't find a team that wanted him, and they're still trying. Clemens understands that all he can be as long as he's with the Jets is a third-stringer.

"As far as I know, the No. 1 and 2 spots are pretty locked up," Clemens said.

And the trade talk is the latest sign that the No. 3 spot may go to Kevin O'Connell, and that the Jets' 2006 second-round pick is on the way out.

Why would any team want him.

Only teams I could see taking him are Cleveland or Carolina. I doubt Mike Holmgreen would trade for him though.

Although Mangini's coached him before, I doubt he'd take him again - remember Mangini was in on the decision to get Favre rather than start Clemens. Plus Cleveland's got a stable of QBs - however uninspiring it is - with Delhomme, Seneca Wallace and Colt McCoy. The Panthers might be interested but then again they drafted two, with Clausen receiving a lot of hype and are reportedly high on Matt Moore.
We'd get a late round pick at best for him.

Oakland is always possible, so is minn (they wanted him in the draft when we took him and they settled on jackson), he could compete in carolina as well

Makes more sense to keep O'Connel because his cap hit is smaller I'm sure.

Very few teams in the league have room on their roster for someone who is one of the worst backups in the league, or at least one of the poorer. Panthers and Browns both have iffy overall lineups, but Wallace is a better sub than people think and was in Seattle with Holmgren and Moore played well last year and the Panthers drafted two QBs that played well for rookies in that first preseason game. The Vikings have Favre and two decent backups. Jason Campell is miles better than Clemens and Gradkowski played better last season than Clemens ever has.

What teams might be so desperate? I can't think of any team whose starter isn't clearly better and honestly, most teams have better seconds. Curtis Painter might be worse, but maybe not.

I still can't figure out why they would trade him. I hope to God that Mark stays healthy because Brunell knows nadda right now. Clemens can come in and keep the offense "a float" at least. Brunell will need the offense scaled back. Man, I just don't like this right now. I don't mind having him on the team to mentor Sanchez but Jesus Christ. I know where f*cked either way if Mark goes down but we are MORE f*cked with Brunell is there.

If you don't think Clemens would need a scaled back offense, you're crazy.

Like most teams in the league, if our star QB goes down, we are fucked.

A seventh is as good as a undrafted FA signing. I'd take it, but there isn't any reason to cling ot the hope of getting one. If they don't want him, they should just cut him rather than hold out for nothing.

Brunell has been in the league for years and played all over in different offenses. I'd be more comfortable with an pass-his-prime vet than with a never was who knows our offense "inside and out."

I don't think we'd be as bad off with Brunell as everyone seems to think. Of course the offense would need to be scaled back BUT we did just fine with old greybeard in there with a scaled down offense as well.

I think Clemens will just end up getting cut and we get nothing for him.

Exactly, it isn't like it is worth sitting on a guy we don't want in the hopes we can dredge out the possibility of a player. Either the team wants Clemens around or they don't, or they think they can get at least a fifth out of him. You don't hold on to guys in the hopes you can draft Mr. Irrelevant.

maybe they do want him for this season, but figure if they can get a decent pick they'd be willing to part with him?
