The New York Jets are inching closer to landing a franchise quarterback Cheap Christian Kirk Jersey , as the team made a monster trade with the Indianapolis Colts to land the third-overall pick in this year's draft.NFL Network's Ian Rapoport broke the news:Trade! The #Jets acquired the No. 3 overall pick from the #Colts for their No. 6 pick, 37th and 49th overall picks in the 2018 NFL Draft and second-round pick in 2019. Major move.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 17, 2018With this trade, the Jets will almost certainly take a quarterback. The top prospects in this year's draft are Josh Allen, Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen and Baker Mayfield. The Cleveland Browns own the first pick, and the New York Giants hold the second.Despite re-signing Josh McCown to a one-year contract while also picking up former Minnesota Vikings starter Teddy Bridgewater in free agency, Gang Green clearly feels their long-term answer is in this year's draft. Hence, they sacrificed a bunch to move up.This trade also works out nicely for the Colts Mike Gesicki Jersey , who only move down three spots while securing a trio of second-round picks. Locked in with franchise quarterback Andrew Luck, there was no way the Colts were going to take one of this year's top signal-callers.GM Chris Ballard now has a ton of draft picks to fill out this team's weaknesses, which range from defense to the offensive line to the ground game.That 2018 @NFL Draft lineup. 馃憖 pic.twitter.com/RBSA1Z3s51— Indianapolis Colts (@Colts) March 17, 2018The Jets haven't made the playoffs since 2010, as they've struggled to find a true No. 1 quarterback. Mark Sanchez, Geno Smith, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Bryce Petty have all gotten reps, but none have panned out. If they do select one of the top quarterback prospects, this could be a major franchise-changing deal.For the Colts Josh Jackson Jersey Youth , they've missed the playoffs in each of the last three seasons, though Luck guided them to the postseason in 2012, '13 and '14. If Ballard can use these draft picks accordingly, the Colts could once again emerge as a contender in no time.We'll see if any more major draft trades take place before Apr. 26. Three politicians in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia are teaming up across partisan lines, seeking to prevent their governments from waging a bidding war with public money to build a new stadium for the Washington Redskins.

The liberal Democrat in Maryland, conservative Republican in Virginia and left-leaning independent District of Columbia Council member have introduced legislation to set up an interstate compact barring any public spending on incentives for a new stadium.

The idea is to prevent the jurisdictions from competing against each other with lucrative offers of public assistance for the new facility. The team’s current lease at FedEx Field in suburban Maryland ends in 2027 and it is exploring new potential locations.

”By taking money off the table, it would be better for all three of us,” said Michael Webert A.J. Green Youth Jersey , a conservative Republican member of the Virginia House of Delegates. He said Virginia, Maryland and the District could still compete with each other through other means, such as streamlined business regulations.

”By the way, I’m a diehard fan, I just don’t think we need to pay for their stadium,” he said.

Maryland Del. David Moon, a progressive Democrat and a former season ticket holder, said a similar interstate compact might not work with other businesses because they could just choose a different region altogether. But a franchise with the word ”Washington” in its name and a strong local fan base has limited options, he said.

”It’s a lot more plausible to try this with a sports team Derick Brassard Penguins Jersey ,” Moon said.

He said the joint effort by lawmakers with different backgrounds and political views points to widespread opposition to spending public funds for a football stadium.

”That’s one of the fascinating aspects to this whole debate, this is not a partisan issue,” Moon said.

Joining them is District Council member David Grosso, a political independent who said last year that ”a football team worth over $1 billion should not need to rely on special government assistance to fund their facilities.”

Team spokesman Tony Wyllie declined to comment.

Whether all three jurisdictions will approve a compact remains to be seen. Landing a new stadium deal could be an attractive political legacy item for a governor or mayor.

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s spokesman Brian Coy said the governor wants to ”structure a creative deal” to bring the team to Virginia, but opposes public subsidies. Coy was noncommittal on whether Northam supported the idea of an interstate compact.

Former Gov. Terry McAuliffe aggressively pursued a stadium deal. A Virginia stadium would most likely be built in Loudoun County, where the Redskins have their practice facility and a majority of players live.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan previously told The Washington Business Journal that he would do ”whatever it takes” to keep the team. His office did not respond to requests for comment.

District Mayor Muriel Bowser has also said she doesn’t support using public money to bring the team back to the city, where it used to play before moving to Maryland.
