The Jaguars are looking to trade two veteran NFL players. DT Malik Jackson and RB Carlos Hyde are both officially on the trade block, this according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
It comes as no surprise that these two are being shopped by the Jaguars.
Malik Jackson spent three seasons with the team and was a key cog in the Jaguars' Sacksonville defense. But a pricey salary cap number and decrease in production combined with the fact that the Jags drafted his replacement, Taven Bryan, with their 2018 first round pick, all lead to the Jaguars looking to dish their veteran 3-tech defensive tackle. If the Jaguars can't find a trade partner, they'll likely cut Jackson, saving the team $11 million in cap space.
Carlos Hyde, a running back that the Jaguars traded a fifth-round pick for mid-way through the 2018 season, didn't produce once he arrived in Jacksonville. If the Jaguars can find a trade partner for Hyde or end up releasing the veteran runner, they'll save $4.75 million in 2019 salary cap space.
These two players are some of the more obvious candidates to be traded/cut but don't be surprised if the Jaguars look to deal or release a few more veterans before all is said and done.
