Jets net No. 3 pick in trade with Colts

New York Jets quarterback Josh McCown right celebrates with teammates after scoring a two-point conversion during the second half of an NFL football game against the Kansas City Chiefs in East Rutherford N.J. Mc Cown was wid

He first joined the league as a second-round pick of the New York Giants in the 2013 NFL Draft out of Ohio State, where he was a First-Team All-American in 2012.

Colts general manager Chris Ballard said the teams had been discussing a potential trade since early in the week.

Both John Elway and Vance Joseph have continued to say to the media that they want to get an impact player with that pick, and they have not been shy about taking their top decision makers to the pro days of Baker Mayfield and Josh Rosen this past week. They re-signed Josh McCown and signed Teddy Bridgewater to a one year free agent contract.The Bills traded Tyrod Taylor to the Browns and the made a trade with the Bengals by trading LT Cordy Glenn for a swap of first round draft picks.

In the end, the more quarterbacks that get overdrafted, the more teams armed with a top-10 pick or multiple first-rounders that are already set at the position benefit. The Jets announced the news Saturday morning via the organization's official Twitter account.

NY has been busy getting quarterbacks this off-season. The only quarterback under contract for more than one year is Christian Hackenberg, and we know he's not the future. The biggest being: which quarterbacks will still be on the board at No. 3, as other teams will be able to dictate what quarterbacks the Jets can choose from.

With this deal, NY has a chance to find its new face of the franchise. It also adds some intrigue with the Giants and Jets picking back-to-back at No. 2 and No. 3. We can debate the merits of NY yielding three second-round picks in a move up from the sixth pick to No. 3 overall all we want.

For the Colts, they now have nine picks overall and appear to be in a rebuilding phase after going 4-12 and missing the playoffs for the third straight year. The Colts also need improvements on defence after finishing 30th overall and 31st in sacks.

By making the move, the Colts save almost $8.5 million under the salary cap and now have roughly $75 million to spend in free agency.

The only player Indy has signed so far is defensive end Denico Autry, who played a year ago in Oakland. "But right now, we feel pretty good". If you think you can get it here, you have to do this.

The NFL draft takes place April 26-28 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
