WATCH: Three players that Jets should snag from tanking Dolphins
There are multiple Dolphins players that reportedly want out of Miami after getting thrashed by the Baltimore Ravens 59-10 in Week 1, according to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio.
Florio reports that "multiple Dolphins players contacted their agents after Sunday's season-opening blowout loss and directed them to attempt to engineer trades elsewhere."
This comes in light of the widespread belief that the Dolphins (0-1) are purposefully tanking the 2019 season to acquire the No. 1 pick in the draft. Evidence of said tanking includes starting journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback over second-year pro Josh Rosen and trading away wide receiver Kenny Stills and offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil to the Houston Texans.
While we don't know which specific Dolphins are disgruntled, if these three are available the Jets (0-1) need to pounce immediately on their division rival.
3. WR DeVante Parker
Parker has been part of trade rumors since last year when Adam Gase was head coach. He was even a player that would possibly be cut by the Dolphins with this last offseason being full of him being on the injury report. Parker's best bet may be a new change of scenery, and the Jets could use the highly athletic receiver.
2. K Jason Sanders
Still suffering from not re-signing Pro Bowler Jason Myers, kicker is the No. 1 priority at this point. Sanders would be an amazing acquisition as he's one of the most talented kickers in the league. The 2018 draft pick made 19 out of 21 field goals last season, along with 34 out of 35 extra points. It's not often you see teams trade for kickers, but the Jets should try everything in their power to pull this off if he's available.
1. CB Xavien Howard
Along with kicker being a need, corners are right up there as well. The Pro Bowl cornerback was tied for first in the league in interceptions last season and is undoubtedly elite. A pair of Trumaine Johnson and Xavien Howard with an already great duo of safeties in Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye would form one of the best secondaries in the NFL.
After a disappointing loss to the Bills on Sunday, the Jets need all the help they can get, because their schedule is only going to get more difficult from here on out.
