The Jacksonville Jaguars have made a deal with AFC South division rival Tennessee Titans for linebacker Kamalei Correa, the team reported on Wednesday.
The Jaguars traded a 2021 6th round selection for Correa and a 2021 seventh-round pick.
The Titans were set to release Correa by its hints if no trade deal could be made, yet it would seem that the Jaguars, who are needing assistance along the front seven, were eager to surrender some type of remuneration for the fifth-year veteran.
The veteran linebacker was not content with his playing time with the Titans and requested a trade after he was dormant for Tuesday night’s down against the Buffalo Bills. Correa had just played 36 snaps on the defense so far on the season, and simply a modest bunch on special teams.
With the loss of Leon Jacobs at strongside linebacker, the Jaguars profundity at linebacker is out of luck and somebody like Correa may even have the option to step in and contend to begin.
The Jaguars currently have 11 2021 draft determinations: two first-round picks, two second-round picks, 33% round pick, two fourth-round picks, two fifth-round picks and two seventh-round picks.
