The New York Jets have been urged by NFL analyst Chad Forbes to consider a trade deal for Cincinnati Bengals offensive tackle Jonah Williams, as the Jets look to fortify their offensive line. Forbes sees the 25-year-old Williams as a prime target, with current left tackle Duane Brown entering his age 38 season.
In a recent tweet, Forbes expressed his view on the potential trade, stating, “If the acquisition cost isn’t overwhelming given Bengals want to move the contract, Jets should be ALL OVER Jonah Williams.” He also suggested that the Jets could designate Brown as a post-June 1 cut if they view Williams as a suitable left tackle replacement. However, it’s worth noting that not everyone around the league is convinced of Williams’ ability to fill the left tackle role.
While the Jets’ interest in Williams remains speculative, Bengals executive vice president Katie Blackburn downplayed any urgency in trading the young offensive tackle. In a conversation with reporters on Wednesday, she made it clear that the Bengals aren’t rushing to make any deals involving Williams.
As trade rumors continue to swirl, Jets fans will surely keep an eye on any developments surrounding Jonah Williams. Stay tuned to Babblesports for the latest news, exclusive interviews, film breakdowns, and much more.
