Jets fans could have a tough time going to sleep Monday night after seeing Deshaun Watson "like" a post on Instagram that suggests the Jets should try and trade for the unhappy QB.

The back page of Monday's New York Post had a picture of Watson with the headline: "WATEVER IT TAKES," with the WAT (for WATson) in Green.

The accompanied tagline from Brian Costello said: Jets should make Texans an offer they can't refuse for the disgruntled quarterback.

The Jets can potentially offer the Texans arguably the best trade package if they chose to do so. With the help of the draft capital they got back from the Seattle Seahawks in the Jamal Adams trade (two first round picks and a third-rounder) and the No. 2 overall pick they "earned" themselves this season, the Jets could put together something most teams can't.

The team already had to decide if they were going to trade Sam Darnold and pick a QB with that second pick, keep him and use the pick for something else, or even keep him while also selecting a QB — although this idea is clearly a stretch.

Trading for Watson would already answer most of those questions, but now add that it appears he would approve of a deal that would send him to New York, and that seems to tie things up in a nice bow on what the new offseason priority should be for the Jets.
