Jets’ Leonard Williams in the middle of trade whispers

The Jets could be looking to move on from Leonard Williams.

According to a report by ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Sunday, multiple teams have reached out to the Jets about the availability of the defensive end.

The team is apparently not interested in trading Williams at this time. The NFL trade deadline is Oct. 29 at 4 p.m. ET.

Williams is in the last year of his rookie contract, and while his counting stats have consistently underwhelmed, he’s drawn praise from Gang Green’s new coaching staff this season.

“He really has played well,” defensive coordinator Gregg Williams said Friday. “He’s graded out high each and every week, and doing things that maybe don’t show up [in stats], but doing things schematically, and team-wise what you have to do.”

The 25-year-old, the No. 6 overall pick in 2015, has racked up 11 tackles this season and 17 sacks in 68 games with the Jets.
