Jacksonville Jaguars CB trade target No. 4 – Kyle Fuller

The Denver Broncos were off to a hot start this season, winning their first three games. Alas, they have gone on to lose their next three. This shouldn’t have come as a surprise. All the teams they beat had a losing record, including the Jaguars.

Jacksonville has gotten significantly better since then. At the time, the Jaguars’ coaching staff wasn’t sure how to properly use running back James Robinson and the offense looked slow for a good chunk of the game. While the Broncos still have a better overall record than the Jags, you could make the case the latter is the better team right now.

After losing to the Cleveland Browns on Thursday Night Football, it seems like Denver is in a state of disarray, and head coach Vic Fangio may be on the hot seat. The Jaguars should use this opportunity to give the Broncos a call and inquire about cornerback Kyle Fuller.

Before the season started, teams called Denver about Fuller’s and Bryce Callahan’s availability. At the moment, they didn’t listen to any offers because they lacked depth at cornerback. However, it’s possible that they may entertain proposals now that Ronald Darby is back in the fold after missing four games earlier this year. If so, the Jaguars need to inquire about Fuller. The 2014 first-round pick started the first five games of the season but only played two snaps in Week 6 and was benched for Denver’s game against the Browns.

It doesn’t look like Fuller is part of the Bronco’s future with rookie Patrick Surtain and Darby locking up both starting spots on the outside. It doesn’t make sense to keep him on the bench, so Denver may be better off trading him.
