NFL draft buzz: Do the Jets want Trubisky?

Are the New York Jets really interested in Mitchell Trubisky, or are they bluffing with hopes that a team trades ahead of them? If true, Todd McShay thinks it's a strategy that makes sense.

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan could've doused the Sheldon Richardson trade rumors on Monday, but he took a pass, declining to comment on whether he will try to deal Richardson before or during the draft. He said, "As a general manager, you're looking at all different ways you can change the team, improve the team or help the team. You weigh everything as you come across it." Officials from some other teams believe a trade is unlikely, in large part, because of Richardson's $8.1 million salary.

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan, speaking Monday in his annual pre-draft news conference, declined to say whether they will exercise the fifth-year option for S Calvin Pryor. The deadline is May 3. The salary amount hasn't been announced yet by the league, but it will be at least $5.676 million -- the 2016 amount for safeties. The salary is guaranteed for injury only, and doesn't become fully guaranteed until next March.

Jets' dream draft scenario: Find their franchise QB

New York could be in position to bolster its D-line, like it did with Leonard Williams in 2015. However, trading down and taking Deshaun Watson should be the Jets' dream scenario.

2017 New York Jets game-by-game predictions

On paper, this is the Jets' toughest schedule since 2009, based on the opponents' winning percentage from the previous year (.535). How will they fare?

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Jets' lone prime-time appearance will be a Thursday game hosting the Bills in early November. They'll open at Buffalo and end the regular season at New England.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

A few notes on the Jets' schedule: They catch a break in Week 4 in that they face the Jaguars, who will be coming off a game in London with no bye week. The Jets have two home games against opponents that will have extra rest: The Patriots and Panthers. (The Jets, like the Panthers, will be coming off a bye.) The Jets will face one road opponent that will have extra rest: The Saints.

A few thoughts on the Jets' schedule: They open with back-to-back road games for the first time since 1992. They have only one prime-time game, which tells you everything about how the TV networks perceive the 2017 Jets.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets open the season with two games on the road, according to reports. So much for a soft beginning after an 5-11 season. They open at the Bills, per the New York Post. It'll be a coaching matchup of two Rex Ryan successors, Todd Bowles and Sean McDermott. They're at the Raiders in Week 2, per NJ.com. One other note: No Monday night games for the Jets.

'Grade: A' mock: Jets go TE, then QB

If Mel Kiper Jr. were running things, the Jets would make a splash with the No. 6 pick, but they wouldn't address quarterback until Round 2.
