Quote@AdamSchefter: At least two teams, possibly more, have approached NY Jets about trading for Muhammad Wilkerson, per league source. Bares watching Thursday.
QuoteTeams contacting Jets about Muhammad Wilkerson trade
Even though standout defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson has been a no-show at the Jets' voluntary offseason workouts, he is very much on the mind of other teams.
At least two teams, and possibly more, have approached the Jets about trading for the 25-year-old Wilkerson, a league source told ESPN.
More calls from teams are expected as Thursday night's draft gets underway, according to the source.
Just as the Chargers don't plan to trade Philip Rivers and the Vikings don't intend to trade Adrian Peterson, the Jets don't plan to trade Wilkerson. But all of those teams are expected to listen to offers. It is up to another team to sway those clubs' thinking, which could happen in any of the cases.
Wilkerson could be the most attractive defensive player potentially available. Any team interested in acquiring him would have to weigh whether he is better than the player or players it could draft this week. Were he in this draft, Wilkerson would be considered a sure-fire top-10 pick, per one league executive.
At 25 years old, Wilkerson is entering the prime of his career. He also has one year left on his current contract and is seeking a new deal, which has led him to skip the Jets' voluntary offseason workouts with new head coach Todd Bowles. The contract is the issue that could ultimately lead to a trade if the Jets travel down that path.
When he recently was asked about Wilkerson's situation, new Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan did not sound overly concerned.
"I don't really want to comment on if I'd like him to be here or not be here," Maccagnan said at a news conference. "I'm sure Mo is doing a good job, wherever he is, working out. But again, these are all voluntary, so he's not required to be here for them."

QuoteBREAKING: Mark Sanchez Returning to the New York Jets
I guess it all comes full circle for Jets fans sometimes, doesn’t it? It looks like everyone’s favorite quarterback to love, or hate, is returning to Gotham.
Unconfirmed reports have surfaced that Mark Sanchez is returning to the New York Jets. Mark Sanchez, along with the Eagles first and second round picks in 2015, and a second round pick in 2016, will be coming to New York. In return, the Jets will be sending the newly acquired Ryan Fitzpatrick and their current first round pick to the Eagles.
We have heard the rumors that Chip Kelly wants to draft a former quarterback of his, Mr. Marcus Mariota. This would see to confirm this interest. Here is what Chip had to say:
QuoteNobody thinks like Chip. I have had a master plan all along. You have seen it taking shape. I am willing to trade players as easily as most people change their underwear. The Jets wanted a veteran quarterback. I had one, and now he’s on the Jets. Sure, I had to give up three draft picks, but now I can get my guy. My favorite former Duck of them all. See you soon Marcus!
Mike Maccagnan has had a wild off-season, and it continues. He said the Jets were going to be “active”. This is active. Here are his comments:
QuoteI told you I was going to be active, didn’t I? The moves have gone so well, I thought it was high time to make another one. I got to thinking, the reunion moves I have made on defense have been so well received with Darrelle and Cromartie, why not make one on offense? I heard that Sanchez was a popular man with the Jets fan base. He did lead them to two AFC title games, so, it made sense to me!
Macc isn’t wrong. Mark Sanchez did help take the Jets to back-to-back title games. It’s not like Sanchez didn’t have success here. It’s just all that happened afterwards. Sanchez’s play was so poor by the end, we all wondered whether or not he could get it done in New York. They had a solid veteran in Fitzpatrick, why change the plan by bringing in a guy with the checkered past of Mark Sanchez? It doesn’t make a lot of logical sense.
You know when they talk about the “circle of life”? Well, we have it here. You see, in 2009, the Jets drafted Sanchez after acquiring the fifth overall draft pick from the Browns. Here, the Jets have re-acquired Mark Sanchez for the sixth overall pick in the draft. See how it all comes back around?
So, welcome home Mark Sanchez.
So, what do you think of the new quarterback competition? How will Sanchez fair this time around?
I am not sure what I think about this trade, but you know what I DO know?
I know that it is April Fool’s Day!!!!

QuoteReport: Jets have received trade inquiries on Dee Milliner
The Jets have remade their cornerback corps this offseason by signing Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie and Buster Skrine, something that might not have been necessary had Dee Millinerís first two NFL seasons gone a bit better.
Injuries hampered Milliner heading into his rookie season in 2013 and he struggled to fulfill his responsibilities on the field once the season got underway. A torn Achilles wiped out his second season after three games, leaving the Jets without much reason to count on him as a major contributor to their defense in 2015.
Itís also reportedly led some teams to see if they could acquire Milliner on the cheap. Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports the Jets have received inquiries about trading Milliner from other teams, but that the Jets have told them that they arenít willing to deal their 2013 first-round pick for a mid- or late-round draft pick at the moment.
The plan at the moment is for the new coaching staff to have a look at Milliner before deciding on next steps, although itís not clear when heíll be cleared to resume doing football work and could miss the offseason program. If they like what they see, Milliner could see a fair amount of time as a fourth cornerback ó Todd Bowles used six defensive backs often in Arizona ó and the Jets would likely prefer to see that, rather than a fifth-round pick, be the return on their investment.
Absolutely no reason to trade him. He's on a rookie contract and he had some flashes when he was healthy. Let him heal up and learn from the best. Depth is also key because Cro is an injury concern. Cornerback is a position devoid of talent in the league and Jets should just on their potential gold for now.
