According to Connor Hughes of the Athletic, the Redskins worth keeping an eye on as a trade partner for the Jets at No. 3 overall, as there have been “some early talks” about a potential deal.
The Jets are clearly doing what they can to line up the best deal for the No. 3 overall pick, which will net them some additional draft picks to work with this year and offset what they gave up for Sam Darnold last year.
As of now, the Jets are without a second-round pick, but a deal with the Redskins would almost certainly net them much more draft capital than just a second-rounder.
Washington has been doing a lot of work on quarterback prospects this year, but are currently sitting at No. 15 overall. This is just speculation, but the Redskins could be doing their due diligence in case the Cardinals pass on Kyler Murray at No. 1 overall and drops to the Jets.
However, the move from No. 15 to No. 3 overall would be very costly for Washington and it remains to be seen whether it’s a serious option for them. The Redskins could also wait to see how things go in the early part of round one then consider a more modest move up the board for a quarterback prospect.
