According to Mehta, the feeling around the league is that Tampa Bay would not get a first-round pick for Glennon, but a second-round pick could be an intriguing offer for the Jets, while a third-round selection would be a “no brainer.”
Regardless, Mehta does not think the Buccaneers would pay for another premier defensive lineman like Wilkerson since they already gave DT Gerald McCoy a seven-year, $95.2 million extension two years ago.
Mehta believes Jets GM Mike Maccagnan would be ecstatic to trade Wilkerson for a top-15 draft pick. However, Maccagnan recently said that he is not actively pursuing a trade for him.
Mehta thinks it would make sense for the Jets to accept a second-round pick and a late-round selection for Wilkerson since that would be more valuable than the compensatory pick they would receive if he signed with a new team through free agency.
