Blaine Gabbert trade: Jaguars have sent QB to 49ers

Phil Sears-USA TODAY Sports

The Jaguars managed to get a draft pick for Blaine Gabbert.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have traded quarterback Blaine Gabbert to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for a sixth-round pick, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell confirmed on a conference call the deal was for a sixth-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft as well as a conditional pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Dumping Gabbert isn't much of a shock, but the fact that the Jaguars have gotten something in return for the struggling former Top 10 pick is a bit of a miracle. Gabbert leaves the Jaguars with a 5-22 record as a starter and one of the worst Top 10 quarterback picks in NFL history.

He finishes his Jaguars career with just over 4,300 yards in 28 games. He struggled dealing with pressure in the pocket during his time as a starter and over the past two seasons has struggled dealing with injuries knocking him out of multiple games at a time.

The move should definitely point to the fact the Jaguars will be looking for the future quarterback in the upcoming draft, since the only quarterbacks currently under contract are Chad Henne, Matt Scott and Ricky Stanzi.
