2. Cam Robinson, left tackle
Left tackle Cam Robinson will give the top brass something to think about in the offseason. A second-round pick in the 2017 draft, Robinson is one of the longest-tenured players on the team, becoming a leader on the offensive line. He served a four-game suspension to start the season and later missed time with a knee injury. In both instances, his absence was noticeable, as Jacksonville struggled to create lanes in the running game and protect Trevor Lawrence.
While not an elite left tackle, Robinson has been a stabilizing presence in the offensive trenches. That's why the management applied the franchise tag on him in 2021 and gave him a three-year deal worth $54 million in 2022. That said, the aforementioned suspension wiped out all the guarantees on his contract. That puts his future in Jacksonville in doubt.
Robinson is set to count a massive $21.6 million against the cap next season. Given his positive impact, the Jaguars could decide to keep his salary for 2024 intact, restructure his contract, or extend him. On the other hand, the Jags could use the $17.7 million they would save if they released him or traded him. Due to the demand for left tackles in the league, the former Alabama standout could net the Jags a mid-round pick, maybe a second-rounder.
Parting ways with Robinson wouldn't be an easy decision to make. Just recently, he talked about how much it means to be a Jacksonville Jaguars. Then again, the front office needs to revamp a handful of position groups, and the cap they would get from his departure would most definitely help.
