The Jets reportedly want a star receiver. The Seahawks have a star receiver, DK Metcalf, and are clearly in rebuild mode after trading away Russell Wilson.
The Seahawks have also made sure to use some form of the word "intent" when discussing DK Metcalf's future. That's almost a wink to other teams.
From Pro Football Talk:
The signals are there. Less than a month after coach Pete Carroll said the team has “no intention” to trade Russell Wilson, Carroll said as to Metcalf, “We intend for him to be with us.” Similarly, G.M. John Schneider said this week as to whether Metcalf will get an extension, “Yeah, that’s our intent.”
Intent is a present state of mind. Intent can change, quickly. And if the Jets want to offer the Seahawks for Metcalf whatever they were going to give the Chiefs for Hill, that could be enough to get the Seahawks to intend to accept New York’s best offer.
DK to the Jets would be something. Imagine all of the foursomes he could have in the New York area. Given that, if I'm DK I might contemplate requesting a trade.
