Would you trade a first round pick:

For Percy Harvin?

Not sure I'd trade 9 overall, but trading down into the 20s and picking up an extra 2 might make it something that makes a lot of sense for the Jets.

no. He's just too injury prone with those migraines for me.

Nope, wouldn't consider it.

It's not our biggest need and he's not reliable enough. Elite talent, unquestionably, but that's not enough.

1 year rental for a lost season? No thanks. He wants to get paid. Somebody with the Jets the last few years must love him, but whoever that guy is he is probably gone (Mike T) or on thin ice (Rex). Guess it could be Scott Cohen, but I'd doubt it and I'd doubt he'll be GM either.

Jets need to build thru the draft, not trade more picks for more high-priced contracts. So no.

Unless they would be getting back a proven franchise QB in return, the Jets cannot even begin to consider trading a first rounder (with the sole exception of it being to trade down).

Harvin is like 24 and do you really think you could get someone as good as he is in the 20s?

yeah this. why would you want to trade a first round pick for a receiver that will be a free agent next year?

The problem isn't his talent. The issue is, as others have said, the huge financial commitment that would need to be made to him immediately (which the Jets are no position to handle) combined with ongoing health concerns.

In a vaccum, sure why not. In reality, he wants to get paid and has a multitude of injury red flags.

just an observation......but it's deals like this proposed one, coupled with a couple of big time draft whiffs, that got this team in the siatuation it is in. whoever we hire at gm i hope they do this:

realize that this team needs a rebuilding year or 2 to become a consistent playoff contender. after realizing this i want them to dump salary cap and sign low cost, potential upside guys to fill out our roster next year for evaluation. either stay put and draft BPA or trade down if possible to pick up draft picks to help round out the roster. seriously consider trading revis when he is shown to be healthy and pick up draft picks for next year and possibly thre year after.

the above philosophy will have us building a younger roster which, if done correctly, will be have enough young talent to allow us to use the salary cap room we would acquire to really bolster our young talent with key players. obviously somewhere along the line we will have to acquire a bona fide nfl qb. either through free agency, trade or draft.

there is no reason for this team to be trading first round pick on a player who we will have to give a huge contract to unless this player was a quarterback. we are not one receiver away from being a superbowl contendert.

The Jets are absolutely in no position to trade 1st round picks for players. They should be trading players for pics.

If we could have traded a first for Harvin instead of a fifth for Holmes and signed him to that deal without the money due Holmes it would have been a good move. No reason to make that expense at WR now.

The Jets have made a fine art of out thinking themselves but no.

No.

I would like the JETS to trade down in the 1st round. Get a few more picks this year and next in the process.

I would trade them Holmes for Harvin, no doubt. We need our picks badly.

Don't think that's realistic at all.

If a Percy Harvin-type player were all that stood in the way of a Super Bowl, then yes. But currently, a Percy Harvin-type player is the only thing that stands in the way of the Jets winning 4 games instead of 3 next year.

So no.

They aren't getting a QB this offseason. At least not a good one.
