All in for one more year and then do the extension/retool?

I'd rather trade Chris Jones now for a 1st round pick in the 20's, then trade down from that pick and get like 3 young cheap players

They do have an inordinate number of unhappy players.  Even compared to other perennial basement teams.

When you fine players illegally/don't negotiate in good faith with a player this was a matter of time.

Hopefully it's cleared up with Coughlin being gone. So far, so good as far as FA is concerned with landing guys at relatively fair prices.

Yeah and they insist on retaining unhappy players as long as they can to squeeze every asset they can out of them, even in the case of Yan where the dude should be a free agent.

Yep, they should definitely let players run the organization.

Yeah, I could see that being a problem.  That's too bad.  I don't hate the Jags.  I want them to lose to the Titans twice a season, but I don't hate them.  My AFCS hatred is all reserved for the Colts.

Gotta say, you're a rare breed. Seems like the Jags/Titans have a bigger rivalry than any other two teams in the division. Which is odd since it's been largely rough (more so for us) for the past two decades almost.

Texans/Titans goes beyond actual games played. The entire city of Houston cannot stand anything that Bud Adams created.

There are rivalries and then there are rivalries.  I pay more attention to the Jags than most other teams because we play them twice a year, and there's some history there.  Same with the Texans (though I think there's a lot more hatred towards the Titans from the Texans fans because of the move), but the Colts.  They can eat **** and die.

tbh though i feel like that exists more on this website than it does in real life lol. and some of it is just because both our teams spent a lot of time in the cellar over the past decade so it's not like there were any sustained rivalries going with the other two teams

Social media seems quite rampant with it too but you may be right.

Lol. You really think the Jags were gonna let him walk without receiving any compensation in return? Even the Jags aren’t that dumb.

Seattle released two players (Tendric Thompson, Ed Dickson) freeing up 5 million, putting them at about 16 million in cap space. Sounds pretty close to Clowney money IMO.

Lions supposedly interested in trading for Yannick. Obviously wont be for pick #3 but I thought it was interesting to hear. I personally dont think he is worth trh 18-20 mil a year contract but I wouldnt hate him on the Lions. Probably depends if we could get more picks on draft day.

Where'd you see that?

Ultimately I would've been fine with the Jaguars paying him 20-21M personally. As I said, top 5 in pressures since 2016 among all who qualify. He's been elite in that area. Those guys get paid.

Source is edited above.

As far as compensation I could see maybe the following trade:

Jags get #3 and Jarrad Davis. Lets Jags get Tua

Lions get Yannick, #9, and #42
