NFL trade rumors surrounding Jay Cutler and Colin Kaepernick have been floating around for weeks now. How about adding Johnny Manziel to that list? With New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith suffering a torn ACL in last Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens, the possible NFL trade rumors are heating up in the Big Apple.
Could the Jets try to work a deal that may bring Manziel, Cutler, or Kaepernick over to replace Geno Smith?
According to Sportsrageous.com, the Jets may soon be shopping for another quarterback. With Smith going down for the season with a torn ACL and Ryan Fitzpatrick not performing like he did in 2015, the New York offense needs a boost. Right now, the only other quarterbacks on the Jets roster are Bryce Petty and rookie Christian Hackenberg.
The news of Geno Smith's injury hit coach Todd Bowles hard, however, he knows there is a lot of games left and that his team needs to refocus. However, the question remains: Does refocusing mean dealing for another QB?
"When you hear [the news], it's tough luck for the kid and you go from there," Jets head coach Bowles stated via ESPN. "Fitz finished the game up, and we'll go on from there with Fitz."
Fitzpatrick has performed well since taking over as the starter, but it may be time for the Jets to start looking for other options, as his inconsistent play has become a big factor in the Jets lackluster offense in 2016. Could Manziel or Kaepernick, both of whom come with a lot of baggage, be a good fit in New York?
Other NFL trade rumors floating around the internet world include San Francisco's Torrey Smith and the Bears Alshon Jeffery – two very good receivers on two very bad teams.
