1. New York Jets

The Jets are firmly in the market for a wide receiver, with reported interest in trading for Keenan Allen and Jerry Jeudy that did not come to fruition, along with an upcoming visit with Mike Williams as the second week of free agency gets going.

ESPN's Rich Cimini has freshly reported general manager Joe Douglas is exploring the trade market, which includes Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins and 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk; to whatever degree either is available.

Beyond Garrett Wilson, the Jets' wide receiver depth chart looks more befitting of a CFL or UFL roster (Xavier Gipson, Jason Brownlee, Malik Taylor). Allen Lazard is a name, but he had a disappointing 2023 season (to put it mildly) and he is reportedly on the trade block (maybe they can get a bag of underinflated footballs for him).

Aaron Rodgers has openly called for the addition of a wide receiver. For as long as he's the quarterback, the Jets are in a win-now window and also beholden to pretty much whatever he wants; though adding a wide receiver should be obvious regardless of Rodgers calling for it.

Douglas has to do something to add a veteran receiver, and Cimini hinted at another pursuit of Odell Beckham Jr. after missing on him last offseason. But Reynolds can easily be seen as a better player than Beckham right now, and the cost might be cheaper.
