Jets | Team trying to complete sign-and-trade deal for D. Robertson

John Murphy, of Yahoo! Sports, reports the New York Jets would likely acquire two of the five draft choices the Denver Broncos currently possess between the fourth-and-sixth rounds of the NFL Draft in what would essentially be a sign-and-trade deal for DL Dewayne Robertson, according to several league sources. The Broncos will need to sign Robertson to a new deal prior to the NFL Draft in order to allow the trade to be completed. The Jets are currently without a fourth-round draft choice of their own, while the Broncos have two picks in the fourth round, as well as two picks in the fifth round and one pick in the sixth round. The Jets currently have a total of just six picks in the NFL Draft, while the Broncos own a total of nine draft choices. Trading Robertson would save the Jets roughly $8 million as he currently is scheduled to count $11 million against the team's salary cap.
