Jets HC Doesn't Believe Receiver Will Be Dealt Before Trade Deadline

New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh doesn't believe wide receiver Elijah Moore will be traded by Tuesdays trade deadline despite multiple trade speculations stating otherwise over the past few weeks regarding the disgruntled receiver, via ESPN's Rich Cimini.

Moore, who was drafted in the second round of last year's draft, has not been shy at highlighting his lack of play in the Jet's offense this season and his status as a Jet could be changing, especially by the latest comments he made during his postgame presser regarding his chemistry with quarterback Zach Wilson after their Sunday loss to the Patriots. 

"I don't know, I don't get the ball," Moore said. 

However, Saleh believes their second year receiver will stay on their roster after Tuesday's 4.p.m. ET trade deadline passes, regardless of Moore's demeanor and overall unhappiness.   

"Yep," he said, during his Monday media presser. 

Moore has complained about his lack of overall targets in Week 6 and it may have led to his inactivity in Week 7 after formally requesting a trade. In spite of the young receiver's lack of integration in New York's offense this season, they have stunned the NFL world with their current 5-3 record heading into Week 9. 

The Jets have doubled down on not trading Moore and with a sluggish season due to possible lack of targets it may be hard to believe that teams will make a big enough offer for the Jets to part ways with their pass-catcher.
