The NFL trade deadline is less than a week again, and teams will be making calls to see who’s and who isn’t available. In particular, the Jacksonville Jaguars should be buyers but they could be sellers. After all, they have a few difference-makers other clubs may be interested in.

The Jags aren’t holding a fire sale per se but the fact that they’re 1-5 could entice other teams to inquire about some of their players. Simply, Jacksonville isn’t very good right and clubs may try to convince them to part ways with some of their playmakers since they won’t be competing for a playoff spot this season. Moreover, the team’s brass has made several trades in the last few months. The new regime isn’t adverse to making moves if they think they will either get better or get something in return.

Now, nobody is saying the Jaguars should trade these players but they could be the ones that garner the most interest ahead of the November 2 deadline.

Jaguars player with trade value No. 1 – Myles Jack, LB

Linebacker Myles Jack has been a core player in the Jaguars’ defense over the last few years. He’s one of the last remaining pieces of that Sacksonville defense that helped the team achieve the AFC Championship back in 2017.

Although Jack hasn’t earned any Pro Bowl nor All-Pro designations in his six-year career, you will be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t think he’s among the best linebackers in the league. That’s why the Jaguars shouldn’t trade the 2016 second-round pick.

Patrick Walker of CBS Sports believes the Jags should trade Jack to the Los Angeles Rams. The writer doesn’t outline the kind of compensation Jacksonville would get in return for the linebacker. But regardless of any potential proposals, the Jaguars should hang up on any team that wants to acquire Jack.
