With training camp still a few weeks away, the Jacksonville Jaguars can evaluate the talent level they currently have and look for ways to improve their roster. Trading for someone like Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz would make sense. The Jags could also sign EDGE defender Melvin Ingram, who is currently a free agent, to fortify their front seven. On the other hand, this could be an opportunity to trade some of their own players.

Keep in mind that there are a few trades the Jaguars could have made earlier this year that no longer make sense. Before this year’s draft, teams inquired about third-year quarterback Gardner Minshew’s availability. If Jacksonville had acquired a signal-caller besides C.J. Beathard, it might’ve been smart to deal the 2019 sixth-round pick. However, he’s a pretty good backup and someone the team’s brass can thrust into action in case rookie Trevor Lawrence misses time.

Also, left guard Andrew Norwell was a potential trade candidate before the selection meeting. However, the 2017 All-Pro nod ended up restructuring his contract and will be in Jacksonville for at least one more year. His case is similar to Minshew’s. Had the team’s brass added a potential replacement for the Ohio State product, they could have afforded to deal him. Veteran Tyler Shatley and sophomore Ben Bartch stepped up the plate last season when injuries hit the Jags offensive line but Norwell is currently the team’s best option at guard.

Without further ado, here are three players the Jaguars could trade ahead of this year’s training camp.
