New York Jets Beat Writer Manish Mehta

The PM Team w/Poni & Mueller
Friday, January 18th
Mehta tells us that Brown doesn't make sense for the Jets because of the asking price.  The Jets first round pick is too high and they don't have a second round pick.  Mehta is adamant that the Jets would never trade a first round pick for a wide receiver, especially when they're trying to cultivate a good environment around Sam Darnold and Brown would tank that.  On Bell, the Jets are the odds-on-favorite according to Vegas to land him and Mehta says if the Jets are willing to pay him, then Bell is the no-brain move for them to make.
