4 defensive linemen these Jacksonville Jaguars should pursue via trade
The Jacksonville Jaguars could use any of these AFC West linemen.
Denver Broncos general manager John Elway isn’t afraid to make moves he believes are going to help the team get over the hump and has dealt with the Jaguars in the past. This offseason, this Jacksonville team sent cornerback A.J. Bouye to Denver in return for a fourth-round pick. Now, it’s time for the ‘Jags’ to get a Broncos player.
After being a role player for most of his career, Shelby Harris started every game this season and is on his way to do the same this year. In the last 23 games, the veteran defensive end has recorded 72 total tackles, 8.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, and even 12 pass deflection. The Jaguars would surely welcome that kind of production.
Maliek Collins hasn’t contributed much since joining the Las Vegas Raiders earlier this year. So far, he’s recorded six total tackles and has failed to make an impact in the line of scrimmage. Looking at his role in Las Vegas, he may just not be a fit.
Before signing with the Raiders, Collins played for the Dallas Cowboys. There, he recorded 90 tackles and 14.5 sacks and was among the Cowboys’ top-rated defenders. It’s too early to say whether his tenure in Las Vegas will be a productive one. However, the early returns haven’t been encouraging and maybe needs a change of scenery.
