Jets consider acquiring Lions pick
The Journal News is reporting there were unconfirmed rumors that the Jets were thinking of swapping their first pick, 25th overall, and a defensive starter, to the Lions for the second overall pick.
We have to assume the 'defensive starter' is linebacker Jonathan Vilma as his name has been the subject of many trade rumors the last few weeks.

What are your thought's on this? I personally think the Jets have no reason to trade up and get the 2nd pick of the draft. They don't need another WR. They have Coles and just signed Cotchery to an extension. They also just traded and signed Thomas Jones.
What are your thoughts?
I also think the defensive player is probably going to be Vilma. I think that this trade is awful. Vilma and Rhodes are going to be the face of this franchise on defense for years.
