More often than not, the NFL trade deadline comes and goes without much fanfare. But this year has been different and several clubs have already gotten into the fun. For example, the Kansas City Chiefs acquired wide receiver Kadarius Toney from the New York Giants. The Philadelphia Eagles traded for defensive end Robert Quinn to bolster their pass rush and the Jacksonville Jaguars stunned everyone when they sent running back James Robinson to the New York Jets in exchange for a late-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.

While it’s hard to see the Jaguars being buyers before the deadline, there are several deals they should strongly consider pulling off. At 2-5, they still have (a slim) shot at making the postseason, and adding the right players to the mix could ultimately help them get in.

Earlier this month, Black and Teal posted four trades the Jags should consider making. Here are three more players general manager Trent Baalke should inquire about.

No. 3 trade the jaguars should make: Bradley Chubb, OLB

Outside linebacker Josh Allen is a mainstay of the Jaguars’ front seven and one of the few building blocks they currently have on the roster. That’s why it wouldn’t make sense to trade him before the deadline. After all, he’s Jacksonville’s best pass rusher and instead of moving on from him, the front office should consider looking for ways to help him.

Sure, the Jags drafted Travon Walker with the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s players selection meeting but he’s still a work in progress and it will be a while before he fully reaches his potential. For the time being, Trent Baalke should give Denver Broncos general manager George Paton a call about Bradley Chubb, who will coincidentally play the Jaguars in Week 8.

Once the Robin to Von Miller’s Batman, Chubb is now the Broncos’ best pass rusher, which is why clubs have shown interest in his services, per insider Jordan Schultz. Trading for him would cost a premium but he would be worth it. This season, the North Carolina State product has already logged 5.5 sacks and he would give the Jaguars a proven bookend pass rusher opposite Josh Allen.
