The Jacksonville Jaguars kind of threw everyone a curveball when both Doug Pederson and Trent Baalke made it clear that they expect left tackle Cam Robinson to be on the roster in 2024. This is a tad shocking for a couple reasons.

First, Jacksonville could create $17.2 million in space if they released or traded Robinson. Moreover, moving on from him would pave the way for either Walker Little or Anton Harrison to become Trevor Lawrence's blindside protector next season.

Maybe the Jags want to drive up Robinson's price and get a better offer if they place him on the trade block. But let's take Baalke and Pederson at their word. Let's say Jacksonville does intend to keep the former Alabama standout for the duration of his contract. Harrison would likely remain at right tackle, but what would happen with Little?

There's most definitely value in having a swing tackle, one that can line up on either side of the ball. However, Little is entering the last year of his contract and the team's brass could easily find his potential replacement in free agency or the draft. Why not shop Little and see what teams are willing to offer? After all, the former Stanford Cardinal is still on his rookie deal and fared well when called upon.

Just last year, Little made four starts at left tackle while Robinson served a suspension for violations to the Performance-enhancing Drug Policy, giving up just five total pressures and one sack in that span. He could surely help teams in need of help at left tackle. These three should pick up the phone and see what the Jags want in exchange for him, maybe a conditional third-rounder?
