The Jets, sitting at 1-5 on the season, aren't expected to be making moves to improve their team before the NFL trade deadline next Tuesday. But that doesn't mean a selloff is happening either.

Speaking before practice on Wednesday, head coach Robert Saleh said he and GM Joe Douglas are in "complete lockstep" about their approach at the deadline.

"If it's something that's going to help us, awesome," he said. "But I also know we're not looking for a fire sale here."

As for players that could be on the chopping block for the Jets, S Marcus Maye is a prime candidate, though teams will have to keep in mind he's still owed about $6.9 million for the rest of the year after the Jets franchise tagged him.

But rebuilding teams can be wary about dumping too many players as they want to have cohesion and continuity as much as possible.

In the past, Douglas has been stern about his asking prices on certain players -- the Jamal Adams buzz comes to mind.

So we'll see what Douglas and the Jets decide to do by Tuesday, if anything.
