The New York Jets have been linked to star quarterback Deshaun Watson for some time now. However, they are now linked to another star: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson.

Trade rumors have been flying around the former Super Bowl-winning QB ever since he expressed his “frustration” with some of Seattle’s decision-making a few weeks ago. This, naturally, caused speculation around the league.

Michael-Shawn Dugar, Mike Sando and Jayson Jenks of The Athletic reported the trade rumors and linked teams early Thursday.

“Some people around the league think a trade could happen, if not this offseason then sometime in the near future,” according to the report.

The report has the Jets linked to the situation, along with the Dolphins, Saints and Raiders. A trade is unlikely to happen, though, as Seattle will likely not ditch their franchise quarterback.

The star quarterback led Seattle to a 12-4 record this past season while throwing for 4,212 yards and 40 touchdowns.

If a trade were to occur, Wilson would join Matthew Stafford, Jared Goff and Carson Wentz as high-profile quarterbacks to change teams. All of this is purely speculation at this point, but anything could happen.
