No. 3 player that could be traded after Jaguars training camp: Shaquille Quarterman

The Jaguars' linebacker corps won't probably pop up when discussing the best in the league but the team's brass has built a diverse unit. After signing Foyesade Oluokun last year, they used a couple of draft picks on Devin Lloyd (Utah, Round 1) and Chad Muma (Wyoming, Round 3). But not content with refurnishing the group in 2022, Jacksonville picked Ventrell Miller in the fourth round of this year's selection meeting.

Despite the fact that Miller underwent surgery earlier this year to repair an injury that held him back last season, he's already showcasing his playmaking potential in training camp. Also, Lloyd is making strides and seems to be in the driver's seat to start next to Oluokun in the opener.

On the other hand, Muma could start the season on the sidelines but it isn't because he lacks talent. He's been flying around in practice and can execute if called upon, as he did last year.

With Oluokun, Lloyd, and Muma seizing the top three spots on the depth chart, and Miller having a favorable chance to make the 53-man roster, the Jaguars could afford to ship four-year veteran Shaquille Quarterman during or after training camp.

Quarterman, a fourth-round pick in the 2020 draft, has become a special team ace and a solid reserve. Last year, he turned heads when he forced running back Derrick Henry to fumble. However, he could find himself on the roster bubble ahead of the preseason.

If the Jaguars do move on from Quarterman, it won't be because he's a bad player. Simply, their linebacker unit has gotten much better over the last two years, and if teams in need of depth at the position give them a phone call, they are in a position to let him go.
