The Jaguars also recently traded former Pro Bowl CB A. J. Bouye to the Denver Broncos in exchange for a fourth-round pick. With the Jaguars finishing 6-10 and last place in the AFC South this past season, Jaguars ownership is now clearly dedicated with taking the team in a different direction.
As for the Baltimore Ravens, the move for Calais Campbell, the reigning Walter Payton Man of the Year, bolsters their already menacing roster, headed by NFL MVP Lamar Jackson. After a 14-2 regular season in 2019, the Ravens suffered a shock exit in the Playoffs at the hands of the Tennessee Titans.
