The Jacksonville Jaguars need to consider adding these NFC East defenders.
It’s time for the Jaguars to pull the plug on defensive tackle Taven Bryan, the former 2018 first-round pick hasn’t become the player they expected, and keeping him in the lineup doesn’t longer makes sense. In his place, they should trade for Washington Football Team defensive tackle Jonathan Allen.
Allen was drafted in 2017 and has left a noticeable impact in Washington. From 2018 to 2019, he registered 14 sacks and 129 total tackles, 19 of those for a loss. He has only recorded just 1.5 sacks this year but looking at his production the last two seasons, it seems like an outlier and not a trend.
The Philadelphia Eagles’ financial books are currently in horrible shape. They are set to be $65 million over the cap in 2021 and in order to get back in financial shape, the ‘Birds’ may opt to start through a youth movement and acquire as many draft selections as they can.
Originally a fourth-round choice in 2018, Josh Sweat is currently enjoying the best season of his career and has recorded three sacks, 24 tackles, and two forced fumbles. The Eagles would be smart to entertain trade offers while Sweat’s value is high. The Jaguar should be one of his suitors and make a play for him.
