The New York Jets are definitely looking at some blockbuster wide receiver trades.

They're on the hunt for a difference-maker at that position and just missed out on Tyreek Hill this past week. They had an offer on the table to trade for him, but Hill ended up going to the Miami Dolphins instead.

Per ESPN's Rich Cimini, the Jets are "keeping an eye" on DK Metcalf, A.J. Brown, and Deebo Samuel in potential trade talks. There's still been no indication that any of those players are available, however.

Samuel is almost certainly not going to get traded since the 49ers are in win-now mode this coming season and beyond. Samuel was also a monster this past season at both running back and wide receiver.

He finished the season with 1,405 receiving yards and six touchdowns, plus 365 rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns.

Brown is also unlikely to get dealt since he'll be a big part of the Titans' offense next season. Metcalf could be on the block if the Seahawks really want to do a major tear-down.

Getting a star wideout would really speed up the Jets' rebuild and hopefully get quarterback Zach Wilson on the right track.
