Leonard Williams is basically the Jamal Adams of the front seven. A good player; nice guy, young, definitely not the problem, but not a game-changer. The fact that Jamal Adams had as many sacks at Leonard Williams isn't great, especially considering Williams' personal goal was to have a sack a game.

In an interesting twist, Leonard Williams had more interceptions than Adams last year, so this defense is all sorts of ****ed.

Maybe he meant a snack a game??

Here lemme save the day.

The Jets need a cornerback. The Chiefs may have just the guy.

Even if New York re-signs Morris Claiborne, there is still work to be done at the position. With an established defensive back on the opposite side of Claiborne, the Jets would have one the best secondaries in the NFL when factoring in safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye.

Right now, Gang Green is thin at the position, though, meaning they are likely to re-sign Claiborne and add a corner. There are a handful of options on the free agent market, but Kansas City might have an alternative via trade.

With veteran David Amerson joining the Chiefs and Kendall Fuller coming over in the Alex Smith deal, could Pro Bowler Marcus Peters be available in a trade? That’s what Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk is wondering following KC’s added depth at the cornerback position.

If that’s the case, the Jets would be wise to pick up the phone and dial an 816 area code.

Peters, just 25 years old, is three years into his rookie deal. With another two seasons of team control, he is the type of player that’s worth parting with significant assets for. While the Jets shouldn’t sell the farm for Peters, they do have chips to work with, including two second-rounders.

The 2015 AP Defensive Rookie of the Year, Peters has racked up 19 interceptions, 55 passes defended, five forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries, three touchdowns and 151 tackles in his career. He’s started at least 14 games every season and was a First-Team All-Pro in 2016.

Take into consideration Peters’ $1.74 million base salary in 2018, and it will be hard for any team to find a cornerback as talented and affordable as Peters, even if he does cost draft capital. His cap hit in 2018 will be just over $3 million with an equal amount of dead money, according to Spotrac. Whoever he plays for will have to make a decision on his fifth-year option in early May, according to Florio.

All those positives aside, there is a reason why the Chiefs would potentially want to get rid of Peters besides depth.

As Florio points out, Peters has not always been the easiest to work with in Kansas City.

Peters has become one of the better cornerbacks in the NFL, but Peters has at times been a bit of a handful for the Chiefs. The situation came to a head last season, when he seemed to try to get himself ejected, then seemed to assume he was ejected when he wasn’t, then returned to the sidelines with his uniform on and socks off, showing no intent to return to action.

The incident, along with an argument with a coach, got Peters suspended for a game. For the Chiefs, it quietly may have been the last straw.

That said, the Jets have tolerated players with worse track records and less talent than Peters, including at the cornerback position. While Todd Bowles and company have worked hard to improve New York’s culture, the potential threat of Peters hurting that effort is not substantial enough for the Jets to pass on a player of his caliber.

He’s a guy that can transform a secondary, will come cheaper than any impact free agent and one who fits with New York’s youth movement.

If the Chiefs do indeed put him on the block, the Jets should be there waiting with an offer.

Need interior line help, hopefully Shell and Beachum are adequate enough to be on a very good O-line with Norwell, Price, Pugh or some combo of the 3

I can't wait for "wondering " season to be over 

long way to go and nothing new to discuss, so you should expect to see threads like this 10 fold by the time we get to mid March.

Chiefs want a 1st rounder, would you give up both our 2nd rounders? A first next year? I wouldn't give up #6, but I would be aggressive in trying to trade for him and would consider giving up both our 2nd rounders for him, guy is an elite young corner, a true #1, then I'd sign Kyle fuller, Claiborne was good when he was on the field and not committing penalties, prefer the youth of fuller and Peters

We might get news on cousins tag soon,  and trade talks might heat up because of that. 

Otherwise yes we are in silly season

Getting close to March though. That’s when things start moving along. Last few years March has been absolutely crazy as far as Trades/ Unexpected Signings go

A 2nd is about all I'd give up. He's good enough to get a 1st but eh. 

Just 1 2nd or both? I'd ideally like to give up only one but if it takes 2 I think I would, what are the odds of Mac drafting an All Pro player with either of the 2 2nd round picks.
