Trade speculation continues to swirl for D.K. Metcalf.

According to a Sunday morning report from ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler, many in the league believed the Seattle Seahawks wide receiver could be had for the right price.

The New York Jets could be willing to meet that price.

According to a report from ESPN NFL insider Rich Cimini, the Jets might be ready to pounce on the Pro Bowl wide receiver.

The hot names are the Seattle Seahawks' DK Metcalf and the Tennessee Titans' A.J. Brown, both of whom have only one year left on their rookie contracts and are up for mega-extensions. The receiver market has exploded in recent weeks, prompting Seahawks GM John Schneider to express sticker shock. The Jets' Twitter pounced on that, fueling its visions of Metcalf in green (meaning the Jets' color, not money, although the latter would certainly apply).

New York made a run at former Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill, though the speedster chose to go to Miami instead.

Metcalf would be a superb addition for Zach Wilson and the Jets offense.

However, some believe that A.J. Brown of the Titans could be the more likely addition.
