Jacob Trouba's trade request might give a defender like Paul Postma a shot at regular playing time with the Jets this season.
"I try not to worry about stuff that happens in the media, contracts and stuff. What's going on with (Trouba) has nothing to do with me, but it does play a small part and it's tough not to think about," said Postma. "I just want to play my best and whatever happens, happens." He appeared in just 26 games with the Jets last season and would like to play on a more consistent basis. Sep 28 - 9:21 AM
