The New York Jets head into a pressure-filled offseason and need to improve the roster for a playoff run in 2024. The defense is lights out so the attention will be focused on the offensive side.

With Aaron Rodgers slated to return in 2024, the Jets need to make sure they give him as many playmakers as possible.

A perfect trade candidate is now available and the Jets need to seriously consider acquiring him.

According to Dianna Russini of the Athletic, the Pittsburgh Steelers are willing to listen to trade offers for WR Diontae Johnson.

Jets Rumors: Diontae Johnson Would be a Great Addition

Gang Green needs to desperately add another reliable playmaker opposite of Garrett Wilson. Outside of Wilson, no other WR recorded more than 311 yards in 2023. They can't go into 2024 with that kind of production.

That's where Johnson comes in. The Toledo product is a shifty route runner who has a pair of secure hands. Johnson has the versatility to play either in the slot or on the outside and that's a plus.

In his five-year career, the 27-year-old has recorded 391 receptions for 4,363 receiving yards, and 25 touchdowns. That includes playing with a declining Ben Roethlisberger and unproven quarterbacks like Kenny Pickett and Mitchell Trubisky.

Imagine the production in an offense that features Rodgers, Wilson, and Breece Hall? Now you're cooking and the Jets should certainly look at bringing him to town.

The Jets need to ace their offseason to improve their odds for next season. According to FanDuel Sportsbook, the Jets are +300 underdogs to win the AFC East in 2024. If you want to take advantage of these odds, head over to FanDuel Sportsbook and claim your sign-up bonus.
