Add the New York Jets to the list of teams interested in trading for Trent Williams. Other teams potentially involved are the Cleveland Browns, Arizona Cardinals, and Houston Texans. The Jets currently have 7 draft picks this year, including the 11th overall pick. They also have a 2nd, two 3rds, a 4th, 5th, and 6th.

The last two don't make sense due to their recent roster moves. But the Browns were very interested in trading for Williams last year, even reportedly offering a 1st round pick that turned into #10 this year.

GM John Dorsey is out in Cleveland, but the interest in Williams is still there. The Browns currently have 8 draft picks this year, including the 10th overall pick. They also have a 2nd, two 3rds, a 4th, 6th, and two 7ths.

The Redskins gave permission to Trent Williams' agent yesterday to seek a trade after reportedly not getting much interest at the Combine. Now teams are calling, and the Redskins are still looking for a 1st pick or "fair draft compensation"

The Browns will likely also have to weigh giving up the No. 10 overall pick for Williams as opposed to drafting one of the top blindside protectors in this tackle-rich draft, but ideally they’d keep their first-round pick.

The Cardinals and Texans have expressed interest in Williams, according to sources. Other NFL writers from The Athletic weighed in on whether they see viable landing spots around the league ahead of a weak free agency class and a draft loaded with rookie tackles.
