Jaguars No. 2 trade offer for Aaron Donald: Cam Robinson + 2nd-round pick

Donald for Chaisson

The Jaguars might have a "burden of choice" kind of situation at offense tackle next season. They drafted Anton Harrison 27th overall this year to replace right tackle Jawaan Taylor, who joined the Kansas City Chiefs in free agency.

With Harrison slated to line up on the right side, Walker Little will step in at left tackle while Cam Robinson serves a four-game suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy. Serving as the Jaguars' primary backup at offensive tackle is veteran Josh Well, who can line up on either side.

Little needs to be given a chance to prove he's the long-term answer at left tackle and if he shows out in training camp, the Jaguars might feel comfortable trading Robinson before this year's deadline. The downside for any potential teams interested in acquiring the Alabama product is that he'll miss the first four games of the season. On the other hand, his suspension wiped all the guarantees on his contract, so both his $16 million salary in 2023 and his cap hit of $16.5 million next year aren't guaranteed.

Keep in mind that the Rams need help at left tackle. Incumbent Joe Noteboom suffered an Achilles tear last year and is currently undergoing rehab. Head coach Sean McVay says he'll be ready for training camp but if he isn't, Robinson provides insurance. Similarly, Los Angeles could trade for Robinson, plug him in at left tackle, and move Noteboom to the interior, where help is also needed.

In addition to sending Robinson to the Rams, they could offer a second-round pick. It would have to be the one in 2025 though, as they might have to give the one next year to the Atlanta Falcons if they give wide receiver Calvin Ridley a contract extension, which is likely.
