Jaguars trade for Titans LB Kamalei Correa, per report

NFL: AFC Championship-Tennessee Titans at Kansas City Chiefs Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars have made a deal with AFC South division rival Tennessee Titans for linebacker Kamalei Correa, the team announced on Wednesday.

The Jaguars exchanged a 2021 sixth-round selection for Correa and a 2021 seventh-round pick.

The Titans were set to release Correa by the sounds of it if no trade deal could be made, but it looks like the Jaguars, who are in need of help along the front seven, were willing to give up some form of compensation for the fifth-year veteran.

The veteran linebacker was not happy with his playing time with the Titans and asked for a trade after he was inactive for Tuesday night’s game against the Buffalo Bills. Correa had only played 36 snaps on the defense so far on the season, and just a handful on special teams.

With the loss of Leon Jacobs at strongside linebacker, the Jaguars depth at linebacker is in need and someone like Correa might even be able to step in and compete to start.

The Jaguars now have 11 2021 draft selections: two first-round picks, two second-round picks, one third-round pick, two fourth-round picks, two fifth-round picks and two seventh-round picks.
