The Jacksonville Jaguars will be facing another All-Pro defensive lineman twice a year for the foreseeable future.
Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the San Francisco 49ers have dealt defensive tackle DeForest Buckner to the AFC South for the No. 13 overall pick.
Trade AND deal: Colts trade first-round pick (13th overall) to 49ers for All-Pro DT DeForest Buckner, who already has agreed to a massive contract that pays him $21 million a year and makes him the second-highest paid DT in NFL history behind only Aaron Donald, sources tell ESPN.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 16, 2020
Buckner is an exceptional talent along any team’s defensive line. After being drafted in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, Buckner has missed just one game in his career — and he’s racked up 263 tackles (38 tackles for a loss), 28.5 sacks, seven fumbles recovered, and 11 passes defended.
