The New York Jets might need to trade for a wide receiver before the 2020 season.

When roster cuts are made around the league in a few days, the New York Jets are going to be like a pack of ravenous wolves with just about every wide receiver that hits the waiver wire.

It doesn’t matter if it’s the skill positions or the offensive line, the New York Jets have failed to properly surround Sam Darnold with talent and it has stunted his growth through two NFL seasons so far.

The Jets already didn’t have a great group of wide receivers heading into training camp, but now, the alarms have to be going off in a big way as both Breshad Perriman and rookie Denzel Mims are dealing with injuries that could linger into the regular season.

Perriman’s injury history has been a significant concern since he came into the league, and this certainly doesn’t sound good.

Mims may be closer to returning to action, but he will have a lot of catching up to do when he comes back from a hamstring injury he suffered early on in camp.

In addition to two of their top two receivers missing time with injuries, the Jets suffered a scare with tight end Chris Herndon also getting hurt in practice, though it doesn’t seem like it will be a long-term issue.

Chris Hogan and Jamison Crowder won’t cut it as top targets in the passing game, so the Jets are going to have to make some moves. Which players around the league could they potentially target?
