The Jets are in desperate need for another wide receiver, and one potential option is officially off the market.
The Raiders traded Amari Cooper to the Cowboys on Monday in exchange for a 2019 first-round pick.
The Jets, who lost WR Quincy Enunwa for an extended amount of time with an ankle injury and waived WR Terrelle Pryor -- who has a groin injury -- would have made sense from a needs standpoint to make a play for Cooper.
However, the Raiders wanted a first-round pick -- a high asking price for a wide receiver having a down year -- but the Cowboys met that price.
The 24-year-old former first-round pick also would have been difficult for the Jets to acquire because they would have inherited his $13.9 million fifth-year option for next season.
Cooper has just 22 catches for 280 yards and a touchdown through six games this season and sustained a concussion in Week 6.
The Jets, though, had several receivers drop passes in a 37-17 loss to the Vikings on Sunday and their new No. 1 option -- Jermaine Kearse -- was held without a catch while WR Robby Anderson had just three receptions for 44 yards.
Another name on the block the Jets could acquire in a trade is Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas.
The Broncos have reportedly had several teams reach out about the five-time Pro Bowl receiver and he is expendable because he is in the final season of a four-year contract.
The asking price is unclear but Thomas is having a much more productive season than Cooper, catching 33 balls for 372 yards and three touchdowns through seven games this season.
