2. New York Jets
It feels like the Jets always have a decent safety but either injuries happen or it’s just not a fit. We saw them trade Jamal Adams to the Seahawks last offseason in a trade that really paid dividends for New York and this year, Marcus Maye was injured and it’s unlikely he stays with the organization.
With all of that said, Williams to the Jets could happen. They have a ton of cap space (sixth in the league) and have a major need at the position. As of now, no one on their roster is starting-caliber but Williams would change that. He’d give them a strong option in their secondary.
The Jets aren’t a winning organization but sometimes that doesn’t matter to these players. If they have a chance to get paid to play the sport they love, winning is no longer the biggest priority. The Jets should be better next year too, as they’ll be in year two of the Robert Saleh era and the defense has some promising names.
Saints fans would love for Williams to stay in New Orleans but at least if he goes to the Big Apple, they won’t have to face him very often.
