Report: Jets have “no plans” to trade Leonard Williams

During the regular season, Jets defensive lineman Leonard Williams said he wasn’t worried about contract matters with the Jets as he played out his fourth year with the team.

The Jets exercised their fifth-year option on Williams’ contract before the 2018 season and the team has ample cap space to pay Williams while addressing other needs, so there wasn’t much reason to be thinking about his deal at that point in the calendar. There have been some suggestions that the Jets could trade Williams this offseason, although Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports there are “no plans” for that at the moment.

Mehta adds that the team is open to a contract extension, although there have not been any talks on that front to this point.

Williams’ role should change with Gregg Williams taking over the defense under new head coach Adam Gase. Both sides may feel it is prudent to see how that works out before any serious discussions about a new deal take place.

    Jets have no plans period.

    Joe Namith got to carry the super bowl trophy. Close as the Jets will ever get to the podium.

  2. Wow, some of you are really hard on the Jets. I think the Jets’ biggest problem is behind them. Trump appointed owner Woody Johnson to be ambassador to England so Woody’s brother is managing the team. After dumping a bunch of high priced players and drafting what they think is a franchise QB, with the cap space the Jets have we could see a change in their fortunes.

    It’s NFL fans who are still living in the Rex/Tannenbaum/Idzik era who go on without doing their due diligence on the team. They didn’t watch Darnold the second half of the year, they have no clue lol.

    Nearly every pre-draft expert had Williams ranked as the best player in the draft and so far he has been pretty good, nothing more. You just never know.

    then how did i know he peaked at usc and was a huge reach?

    the guy has never made a key play in a game in 4 years

    massive disappointment/bust for a top 10 pick

    even them not givng him an extension proves this

    he is not gholston level bust, but he is a bust. he doesn’t even command a double team

  5. Thirty one teams are hoping and praying the Jets are dumb enough to let Leonard Williams go. Don’t get your hopes up folks. Williams isn’t going anywhere. Wait until Sam Darnold gets rolling and the Jets start getting out to early leads. The Jets are building something special, and they have 3 or 4 HOF type players. This reminds me of those 70’s Steelers teams. You guessed it. Williams is playing the role of Mean Joe Greene.

    What a bust. Compare Trey Flowers in the 4th rd to this loser.

    Excuse me but a bust is Dominique “no knees” Easily and that fat turd G theyare trying to play at LT that they just drafted in the early 20s who spent 2018 on IR after only 9 preseason snaps and may never play a down in the NFL due to that injury.

    ——————————————————————————————–I’d rather have Mean Joe Greene now, than Leonard Williams.

    You’ve been on these boards trolling Leonard Williams for like two years dude give it up. Leonard Williams didn’t “peak” at USC he was what 19-21 years old? USC also ran a 4-3 and Todd Bowles/Kacy Rodgers forced him into a 3-4, and now Williams is back in a 4-3 if you didn’t know. Also, if you had a clue about the Jets or what was going on you would know Bowles had a weird fascination of playing the kid at NOSE TACKLE. What are you talking about he doesn’t command double teams? That’s literally the exact reason why his sack numbers are down and why the Jets will be looking at pass rush options in the top 3 LOL

  10. Don’t pay any attention too tylaw picks crap. He has no clue whatsoever what he is commenting on. Everything he says is completely false and wrong I’m actually surprised they post the things he says. What a fool.

    First, he’s not a bust, just not the star he was supposed to be. Second, the Jets did nothing wrong in taking him since he was the obvious consensus pick. Third, since you knew he peaked at USC, why aren’t you an NFL GM since you apparently know more than anyone else.

  12. if my team ever won 6 superbowls in 18 years & i still felt the need to troll a perennially inept franchise that gift wrapped to me two legends in belichick & brady..send help.
