NFL Trade Rumor: Jaguars Rashean Mathis on the block?

New, comments

Three GMs/personnel people also told me they think Jax CB Rashean Mathis could be had for mid-rd pick.

I want to reiterate this is nothing but a flat out rumor at this point, because I've heard absolutely nothing on this, but according to Peter King of Sports Illustrated, he's heard it's possible Jacksonville Jaguars starting cornerback Rashean Mathis could be had for a mid-round draft pick.

Does this mean Rashean Mathis is being shopped and could be traded by the NFL trade deadline next week? Highly doubtful. Not only is Mathis still the best defensive back on this football team, but with the injuries to Derek Cox you're already thin in the back end already. While guys like William Middleton and Kevin Rutland have played well in spot duty, unless the Jaguars are blown away by an offer, it would seem like giving up.

However, this probably isn't mentioned by Peter King unless there is something out there. Where there's smoke, there could be fire. I can't see it happening, however. Doesn't make sense right now.
