After a flurry of moves, the Jacksonville Jaguars are ready to hold joint practices with the Atlanta Falcons the next two days before they face off against each other in the preseason finale.

In case you missed it, the Jaguars waived several players ahead of Tuesday’s deadline. Moreover, they claimed kicker James McCourt off waivers and acquired reserve offensive lineman Cole Van Lanen from the Green Bay Packers.

Following the Falcons game, the Jaguars will need to reduce their roster to  53 players by Tuesday, Aug. 30. They have a handful of players that might make the cut but won’t get much playing time in 2022, so it might make sense to shop them around and gauge interest from other clubs.

With that in mind, here are five players the Jaguars could try to trade in the upcoming days.

No. 5 player the Jaguars could trade before final cutdown: Andrew Wingard

After spending most of his rookie campaign on the sidelines, safety Andre Cisco figures to line up next to Rayshawn Jenkins in Week 1 of the regular season. Last year, the coaching staff went with Andrew Wingard, who steadily moved up the depth chart after going undrafted in 2019.

But Wingard will enter the 2022 season as the Jaguars’ No. 3 safety and NFL clubs that are thin at the position could give general manager Trent Baalke a call and see if he’s available. The former Wyoming Cowboy has appeared in 44 games with 21 starts over the last three years and has logged three interceptions and two sacks and 168 total tackles.

The Jags still have Daniel Thomas and Rudy Ford in the fold, so they could afford to part ways with the player known as Dewey.
