The Jacksonville Jaguars have gone through a meaningful makeover in the last few days, bringing back key contributors from last season and signing free agents to give their roster a makeover. One player who may not be around in the regular season to see all the changes new head coach Urban Meyer and general manager Trent Baalke have made is quarterback Gardner Minshew, who has been the subject of trade talks.
Teams have been are inquiring with the Jags about just how available Minshew he is, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media. He cites the fact Jacksonville will most likely take Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence with the first overall selection in 2021’s draft and Minshew’s starting experience as reasons why clubs are asking whether he’s available.
A sixth-round selection in 2019, Minshew appeared in 12 games, with six starts in his rookie season, going 285-of-470 for 3,271 yards with 21 touchdowns and six interceptions. Heading into the 2020 season, he had a shot to seize Jacksonville’s starting quarterback job but ended up falling short, completing 216 of 327 passes for 2,259 yards with 16 touchdowns and five interceptions in eight starts.
Minshew may not be part of the Jaguars’ long-term plans, so it would make sense for the organization to trade him and get something in return for him. Here are three potential landing spots for the Washington State product.
