Hyde5: Jets trade, Bills loom - and Dolphins look out of QB mix

There is also speculation that the Jets will look to draft Bradley Chubb.

The New York Jets signaled their intentions to select a quarterback in this year's National Football League draft by securing the No. 3 overall pick from the Indianapolis Colts.

They need the flexibility of cheap and young quarterbacks because they're eating so much dead money, as Beane said he's going to take about $45 million of his cap room to account for deals for guys no longer in Buffalo. Picking up so many extra picks made sense on a team with big needs.

The process continued as Buffalo parted with Sammy Watkins, Ronald Darby, Marcell Dareus, Reggie Ragland, Cordy Glenn and Tyrod Taylor in exchange for even more draft capital to make sure the Bills would have everything necessary to move up in the draft.

One other interesting Bills-related note from King's Monday Morning Quarterback column: The team was reportedly "seriously interested" in Jets quarterback Josh McCown before he opted to re-sign in NY.

The New York Jets aren't the only team that has looked into moving up in the 2018 NFL Draft, they are just the only ones that have pulled the trigger on a deal up to this point. Because previous year the Bills at No. 10 could have picked - without any further draft-pick cost - either Patrick Mahomes (Kansas City's newly entrenched starter) or Deshaun Watson (Houston's).

Now, the New York Jets have entered themselves into the discussion. So that leaves the Broncos, who were a gamble due to their signing of Case Keenum this offseason.

A day after the Philadelphia Eagles released defensive end Vinny Curry, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have scooped him up, according to multiple reports.

If Darnold goes No. 1, the Giants pass on a quarterback, and the Jets take either Josh Allen or Josh Rosen, there could be a bidding war between the Broncos and the Bills to land the Browns' fourth pick. Depending on what happens with the first five picks, the Colts might still be able to grab NC State edge rusher or Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson.

Here's to hoping general manager John Dorsey gave an answer to the Bills that they also disapproved of.

Some of the top defensive players in this year's draft include Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith, Virginia Tech linebacker Tremaine Edmunds, Washington defensive tackle Vita Vea and Florida State defensive back Derwin James just to name a few.

On the other side of this deal, the Colts are presumably counting on Andrew Luck to return this coming season and had no need to draft one at No. 3.

But which quarterback you ask?

A first-round pick out of Tennessee in 2009, Ayers spent the first five years of his career in Denver before a two-year stint with the Giants and the last two seasons in Tampa Bay. Even then, that wouldn't necessarily make a whole lot of sense.

But wait? Could the Colts be on the move again? If the Bills want to get ahead of their division rivals, they'll have to offer up their two first-round picks (No. 12 & 22) plus plenty more.
