Newly Released Video Captures New York Jets Draft Room Reaction to Minnesota Vikings Trade at 2024 NFL Draft

A recently surfaced video clip from the 2024 NFL Draft reveals the New York Jets draft room's lively response to the blockbuster trade made by the Minnesota Vikings.
In the trade, the Vikings exchanged the No. 11 pick, along with picks No. 129 and No. 157, to the Jets in order to secure the No. 10 spot. With this strategic move, the Vikings successfully drafted Michigan Wolverines quarterback JJ McCarthy, their coveted prospect.
Given that the Jets had no intention of selecting a quarterback at No. 10, the trade represented a significant victory for General Manager Joe Douglas and Head Coach Robert Saleh. It's no surprise then, that laughter and jubilation ensued in the Jets' draft room once the deal was sealed, as depicted in the recently unveiled footage.
Following the trade announcement, Saleh can be heard quipping, "Free money," amidst laughter. The mood in the room escalated further following the Jets' subsequent selection of Penn State offensive tackle Olu Fashanu at No. 11, with Douglas, Saleh, and other staff members exchanging enthusiastic handshakes and hugs.
The Vikings' targeted move for McCarthy, a standout quarterback from Michigan, was widely anticipated, with many speculating that they might need to trade up significantly higher in the draft order. However, their successful maneuver to secure him with just a one-spot trade has left an indelible mark on this year's draft narrative.
