The Jets clearly don't have a great roster, but it isn't that bad IMO.
That fine. I'm happy to have Burmistrov and if he's ever able to get as much as possible out of his skills he'll be an incredibly effective player.

But playoff teams aren't looking for guys that 'has played well of late'. They're looking for proven guys that they know exactly what they'll get.

Trading for Burmistrov means paying a price that has more to do with the player he may be one day, rather than the player his is now.
