No. 1 trade destination for Jaguars LT Cam Robinson: New England Patriots
The last team that could potentially trade for the Cam Robinson before this year's trade deadline are the New England Patriots. Following the departure of Tom Brady, the Pats have spared no expenses to acquire as much talent as possible. While results have been mixed, they showed they're still willing to open up their checkbook when they signed wide receiver DeVante Parker to a $33 million deal earlier this week.
Third-year quarterback Mac Jones is expected to bounce back after an underwhelming sophomore campaign and if New England really wants to put him in a position to succeed, they should then bolster the offensive line. Veteran Trent Brown will tentatively start at left tackle and Riley Reiff is expected to work his magic at right tackle. However, neither option inspire confidence. Brown has been injury prone throughout his career while Reiff has never been particularly great and is currently 34.
If 2018 first-round pick Isaiah Wynn were still available he would then be an option but a) he signed with the Miami Dolphins following the draft and b) there's a reason the Patriots moved on from him to begin with. Without any other appealing alternatives, pursuing Robinson would be a solid course of action for New England.
After all, Robinson is 27 and barely entering the prime of his career. He would be a huge upgrade at left tackle who would ensure Jones' blindside is protected. Sure, the Jags would surely love to keep him but with Little in the mix, it makes sense for them to gain future assets (possibly a third or even a second-round pick) by trading Robinson and keep restocking a roster that's already loaded with lots of talent.
