No. 2 player the Jaguars could trade by midseason: Cam Robinson, LT
Left tackle Cam Robinson was good but not great in his first four seasons with the Jags. However, the top brass showed they had confidence in him when they applied the franchise tag on him in 2021. The Alabama product went on to have a career year, so the Jags didn't mind giving him a three-year deal worth $54 million last offseason.
Even though Robinson was far from great, he became a leader on the offensive line in 2022, which is why it was disappointing to learn that he broke the league's performance-enhancing drug policy and will miss several games next season while serving a suspension.
The Jaguars expect Robinson back at some point in the regular season. In the meantime, Walker Little will take over at left tackle. If Little struggles, the coaching staff can then plug Robinson back in the starting lineup.
But if the former Stanford Cardinal excels, he'll probably be given the chance to keep the job on a permanent basis. This could then make Robinson a potential trade chip in 2023. Given the demand for left tackles in the NFL, the Jags could probably get a third or even a second round selection for him.
The fact that Robinson is set to make $22.75 million next offseason and the Jags could free up $17.57 million in space with $5 million could incentivize the front office to get a trade done before this year's deadline.
