Jaguars LT Cam Robinson hasn't looked sharp in the preseason

Left tackle Cam Robinson is scheduled to sit out the first four games of the 2023 season while he serves a suspension for violations to the Performance-enhancing drug policy. He's allowed to practice and suit up for the preseason though and he got first-team reps against the Lions. It didn't go great.

Robinson looked underwhelming when he was on the field. Early in the first quarter, he was responsible for a holding penalty that negated a 13-yard scramble by C.J. Beathard that would have given the Jasg a fresh set of downs. Now, it wouldn't have been an issue if he had been solid the rest of the game but he wasn't. It didn't help that fellow offensive tackle Walker Little played several snaps at left guard and fared well.

It's unknown what the Jaguars plan to do once Robinson is stated. It's possible that they themselves don't know but if Walker Little, who will start at left tackle during his absence, shines, it will be hard to justify plugging him back into the lineup.

Having two starting-caliber left tackles is a luxury that not many teams have. The Jaguars do and that could make them feel inclined to ship Robinson to a team in need of help at the position before this year's deadline. The fact that the suspension voided left on the three-year, $54 million deal he signed last year, could make him an enticing trade candidate.

Whatever course of action the Jags take, Robinson didn't help his case against the Lions.
