NFL rumors: Are Jets shopping Quinnen Williams before trade deadline? Depends on who you ask

One week.

That’s how much time New York Jets general manager Joe Douglas has to wheel and deal before the Nov. 3 trade deadline.

Douglas has been busy so far, sending defensive tackle Steve McLendon to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and defensive end Jordan Willis to the San Francisco 49ers.

Will defensive tackle Quinnen WIlliams be the next Jets player out the door? It depends on who you ask. The New York Daily News’ Manish Mehta reported Tuesday at 9:41 a.m. that “the Jets are shopping defensive lineman Quinnen Williams with the hope of moving him for a fair price before the Nov. 3 trade deadline.”

Mehta reports the Jets would be willing to give up the 22-year-old Williams in a deal which includes “multiple” draft picks.

However ESPN’s Rich Cimini reported the complete opposite exactly 30 minutes later. “The #Jets are not shopping DT Quinnen Williams, per league source.”

Williams was the No. 3 pick overall in the 2019 NFL Draft. He has three sacks this season for the 0-7 Jets.

The Jets are the only NFL team without a win this season, putting them on track for the No. 1 pick overall in the 2021 NFL Draft, which would give them the right of first refusal on Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence.
