4 Jaguars that could be placed on the trade block before the deadline
The deadline to make trades in the NFL this year is on November 1st and the Jacksonville Jaguars have been mentioned as potential buyers and sellers. Given general manager Trent Baalke’s affinity to both acquire or ship players through this means, it wouldn’t be shocking to see the Jags pull the trigger in the upcoming days.
In fact, there are several players from other teams that Jacksonville could target before the deadline. Conversely, there are a few on the Jaguars’ roster that Baalke could send packing before the deadline. With that in mind, here are four players that could be placed on the trade block in the upcoming days.
No. 4 Jaguars player that could be traded: Shaquille Quarterman, LB
At first, it seemed like taking Chad Muma in the third round of this year’s draft was an unnecessary luxury. However, the former Wyoming Cowboy turned middle linebacker into a position of strength for the Jaguars. Had Foyesade Oluokun been unavailable against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6, Muma would have most likely started the game.
With rookie sensation Devin Lloyd also on the roster, the Jags could afford to trade Shaquille Quarterman. Sure, clubs might be inclined to inquire about Muma but Trent Baalke might not be interested to part ways with a player he just drafted.
On the other hand, teams that are thin at linebacker or want to fortify their depth could use Quarterman. A fourth-round pick in the 2020 draft, Quarterman has mostly seen time on special teams but he’s played well when called upon. The fact that he’s played for three different regimes during his stint in Jacksonville shows coaches hold him in high regard.
