The Jets are being proactive at the NFL trade deadline, reportedly calling other teams in an attempt to pry draft picks for defensive end Sheldon Richardson.

Pro Football Talk wrote Tuesday afternoon that the Jets are "actively shopping" Richardson as the 4 p.m. Eastern deadline nears. 

Jason LaCanfora wrote, "Jets have talked to several teams about moving Sheldon Richardson but odds of a trade I continue to hear are remote."

ESPN.com's Todd Archer wrote, "Jets have called lots of teams including Cowboys."

The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta wrote Tuesday afternoon, "My understanding is Jets aren't necessarily 'shopping' Sheldon Richardson. But he's not untouchable."

WIP's Benjamin Allbright reported that the Jets want a second round draft pick for Richardson.

It's clear that Dallas wants to upgrade along its defensive line as SiriusXM Radio reported earlier Tuesday that the Cowboys have real interest in Miami defensive end Cameron Wake.

In regards to a Wake trade, Armando Salguero thinks two things are going against it. The first is that the Dolphins believe they can still make a run this season. The second is that the compensation would be weak. Salguero thinks the Dolphins will be asking for at least a second round pick in exchange for the 34-year-old Wake.
