As the Jets gear up for rounds 2 and 3 of tonight’s NFL draft, and the quarterback position is still needing addressed, might Gang Green get involved in a deal with many of the teams rumored to be shopping their current signal-callers?
While it’s no secret that the Philadelphia Eagles are shopping current starter Sam Bradford, it was reported last night during the draft that the Eagle’s asking price is a bit steep at a pair of second round picks.
Following the selection of Cal quarterback Jared Goff to kick off the draft, the Los Angeles Rams are now said to be shopping both their back-up QB’s in Nick Foles and Case Keenum.
Not only are Rams fielding trade offers for Nick Foles, but they'd also listen to teams interested in dealing for QB Case Keenum @nflnetwork

Neither player would be likely to inspire much faith from the fan base, but neither would likely represent a significant change from last year’s starter, Ryan Fitzpatrick, who remains unsigned.
After taking over for a struggling Foles last season, Keenum started five games, throwing 4 touchdowns and 1 interception while completing 57% of his passes.
Jets GM Mike Maccagnan and Head Coach Todd Bowles are both familiar with Keenum as he was a member of the Houston Texans when Maccagnan was working in the Texans front office, and Bowles faced Keenum and the Texans in 2014 when Keenum tied a career-high with 3 touchdown passes.
