No. 2 option to replace Jaguars LT Cam Robinson – Terron Armstead, FA.

Terron Armstead will be one of the top free agents available in 2022. For several seasons, he was the blindside protector for surefire hall-of-fame quarterback Drew Brees. With question marks looming for the Jaguars this offseason. Spotrac has Armstead’s future contract figured out at $23 million a year over four seasons. Having a new head coach and a potential franchise quarterback in Trevor Lawrence could attract Armstead to Jacksonville.

Teams vying for Armstead’s services will have to keep an eye on his knee injury that plagued him all year. He would need offseason surgery to repair this issue. It would be in the team’s best interest to check in on what kind of time frame comes with his particular injury. If he gets a clean bill of health, the Jaguars need to strongly consider kicking the tires on him.

No. 3 option to replace Jaguars LT Cam Robinson – Trent Brown, FA.

Players from the New England Patriots roster do not always perform at high levels when joining other rosters as Bill Belichick knows how to get the most out of the players. Whenever a player leaves the Pats to join a new team it is not without caution. It does not always pan out for them. That pays a strong tribute to the culture that is in New England under Belichick.

While Trent Brown underperformed with the Raiders and experience a series of setbacks, he bounced back once he returned to the Patriots. Based on his performance in 2021, he could be worth signing. Bookend tackles are something that can turn this offense around. The Jaguars have enough cap space to take a chance on him. He has the experience at right tackle it would allow Walker Little to move to the left side of the line. So the team’s brass would have options if they acquire him in free agency.

Replacing Jawaan Taylor with Brown would remove some of the drive-killing penalties. The Jaguars offense has a hard time consistently moving the ball without getting flagged. Trevor Lawrence is a valuable piece of the offense and must have adequate protection. Is the front office willing to pay a top-tier tackle to protect him? If so, Brown would certainly be an option.
