With the Jets taking Sam Darnold at No. 3 Thursday night, teams have contacted GM Mike Maccagnan about QB Bryce Petty, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Teams contacted the Jets about the prospect of trading for Petty last season, but Maccagnan wouldn't listen. This time around, though, is different as the Jets not only have Darnold on their roster now, but with Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater in their quarterbacks room, there may not be a need for Petty. Christian Hackenberg is also on the team's roster.
Petty was the Jets' fourth-round draft pick back in 2015, and has seen limited time with New York since then. In 10 career games (seven starts), Petty has thrown for 1,353 yards on 245 receptions with four touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He has not panned out the Jets had hoped with a 1-6 record and 53.1 completion percentage over his young career.
The 26-year-old is in the final year of his four-year rookie deal with the Jets, after which he is an unrestricted free agent.
