World News – United States – Jets trade Avery Williamson to Steelers


With days to go we have news of another major trade to pass on The Jets to trade linebacker Avery Williamson to the Steelers

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News was the first to tweet that a deal was in the works, and NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport was quick to confirm that the exchange was in fact underway (Twitter link) Pittsburgh will send to New York a 2022 fifth round and recover a 2022 seventh round, ESPNtweets com Williamson’s Adam Schefter will provide the reinforcements needed for the inside linebacker after the Steelers come off the Devin Bush stud for the remainder of the season with a ripped ACL

Pittsburgh are the last undefeated team in the league and they look like legitimate Super Bowl contenders, so it’s no surprise that they’re aggressive. It also makes a lot of sense for the 0-8 Jets, as New York is looking to sell veterans assets in exchange for any capital projects they can get

The Titans’ fifth-round pick in 2014, Williamson signed a three-year, $ 22 contract 5MM deal with the Jets in the 2018 offseason He started all 16 games for New York that year, racking up 120 tackles, before missing all last season with a ripped ACL He will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason and with Bush returning in 2021, he will likely be on short term hire

The Jets have already shipped Steve McLendon and Jordan Willis, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see things turn into a full-blown fire sale in the coming days.

In 2022 5th Not bad Responds to a need and they have not given up on any capital projects for next year Super coup!

Woah, Spillane was awesome in his first 2 games as a replacement for Bush But can never get too deep

Thought it would make sense since Bush fell Congratulations Williamson for going from last to first
