Jacksonville Jaguars: Josh Allen

For reasons that are difficult to explain, the Jacksonville Jaguars always seem open to trading any player on the roster, whether it happens to be Jalen Ramsey last October or the recent trade that sent Nick Foles to the Bears.

So with this in mind, why shouldn’t Eagles fans believe in some sort of chance in the Jaguars willing to make Josh Allen available in a trade with the right offer?

Coming out of Kentucky, Allen was considered one of the top pass rushers from last year’s draft class, and the young defender didn’t need long to prove that Jacksonville made the right choice at No. 7 in the first round.

Even though Allen technically only started four of 16 games for the Jaguars, he did finish the year with 10.5 sacks, which were good enough to earn Pro Bowl honors.

These kind of numbers for Allen’s first year shows why Jacksonville would be fools to trade him after only one season, but once again, the Jaguars have pulled off all sorts of surprise moves over the last few years.

Philadelphia’s defense is already loaded with numerous effective pass rushers, but if someone like Allen were to join the unit, opposing quarterbacks in 2020 and beyond would be dealing with all sorts of issues each game when taking on the Eagles.
