The Jacksonville Jaguars were busy to start off the week and things are still rolling out as the week progresses.
Yesterday, the Jags agreed to trade tight end Julius Thomas to the Miami Dolphins, which will reunite Thomas with coach Adam Gase, for a reported 2017 seventh-round pick.
he trade will not be official until the start of the new league year on March 9.
Jacksonville also released defensive lineman Jared Odrick. Odrick signed a five-year, $42.5 million contract with Jacksonville, with $22 million guaranteed, in 2015 after parting ways with the Miami Dolphins.
The move saves the Jags $8.5 million.
But that wasn’t the only move the Jags will make when the week is done.
Dolphins left tackle Branden Albert is visiting the Jags to work towards completing a trade that would send Albert to Jacksonville in exchange for a 2018 late-round draft pick (heading to Miami, according to a league source, reported by Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.
Jacksonville is getting a jump start on the offseason and looking to re-vamp a team that failed to meet lofty expectations in 2016.
