Nobody will argue Chandler Jones has been one of the foremost dominant pass rushers within the NFL over the last nine years. The Arizona Cardinals’ defensive end recently made news when he requested a trade because he’s not proud of his current contract and his future with the team, per Jeremy Fowler of ESPN. There are currently no indications the Cards decide to trade him but they might eventually cave. Jones is coming off a down year, during which he only appeared in five games and registered only one sack and a forced fumble. Nevertheless, he has only missed one game from 2015 to 2019, so his health shouldn’t be a priority moving forward.
If Arizona grants Jones’ request and trades him, they might easily invite a second-round pick. Of course, the team that gets the three-time Pro Bowl nod also will need to give him a raise. That’s where the Jacksonville Jaguars are available. They don’t actually need Jones, as they have already got Josh Allen and K’Lavon Chaisson but the addition of the 2012 first-round pick could help their defensive position go from good to great.
However, the Jaguars could also put together different trade packages to land Jones. After all, they’re loaded at certain position groups, in order that they can get creative. confine mind there are not any reports currently linking the surface linebacker and Jacksonville. In fact, Brad Spielberger and Austin Gayle of professional Football Focus believe the three ideal landing spots for Jones could also be the Buffalo Bills, the Las Vegas Raiders, and therefore the Baltimore Ravens. Here are three trade ideas involving the Cards defender and therefore the Jaguars.
