While they didn’t make the playoffs, head coach Rex Ryan worked a near miracle with the New York Jets last season and at the very least had them competitive with the roster he had at his disposal. Now with the 2014 season right around the corner, Ryan and Jets management is looking to turn the organization back into a legitimate Super Bowl contender like they once were.

Here’s a look at two players the Jets should be considering trading up for on Thursday night.
