It's not that he's unwilling to sign it's that he's going to look to go to the highest bidder, regardless of loyalty, and the Jets have given away their own tool in keeping him (the Franchise tag)
If the Jets don't believe they will be the highest bidder then they MUST trade him. It's not about trading to get picks, it's about trading him because you have no other reasonable choice. Get what you can, while you can!
