Jags setting themselves up for next season
Jacksonville- The Jacksonville Jaguars have traded away their sixth round pick to the Titans for fifth-year LB Kamalei Correa.
Jacksonville wanted another player that can be a playmaker on the defensive side of the ball and they felt Kamalei Correa could be that player. Correa was first drafted by the Baltimore Ravens and had a decent two years with the organization. In 2018, Correa was traded to the Titans. In 2019, he played in all 16 games for Tennessee and recorded career highs in tackles (37) and sacks (5.0). He added 16 tackles and 2.0 sacks to his resume.
The Jags felt like Correa is the player that they need on the field. He has good feet and speed to get to the quarterback. Correa has shown that he can be a force in the middle of the field with the Ravens and Titans.
This season the Jags have had a hard time with stopping up and ranked overall 27th in the league. Bringing a veteran in like Correa could help the team out if they don't make the playoffs this season. He brings a style that fits with the Jaguars and can help the very youthful defense.
Jacksonville has 11 draft picks next year and if they pick right, this team will have loads of talent on both sides of the ball next season.
