In his look at the AFC South in Four Downs, Andrew Potter listed cornerback as the Jacksonville Jaguars' biggest need, adding that A.J. Bouye was likely to be cut for salary cap reasons. And it didn't take long for Andrew to be proven right -- ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Jaguars are trading Bouye to the Denver Broncos for a fourth-round pick in this year's draft. The trade can not become official until the new league year begins on March 18.
Bouye has stared each of his 43 games in a Jaguars uniform since he left Houston for Jacksonville in free agency in 2017. Per Spotrac, he has two years left on his contract, with $13 million in salary due each season.
Per Sports Info Solutions, Bouye ranked 79th out of 88 qualifying cornerbacks last season allowing 9.8 yards per pass in coverage, and his success rate of 42% ranked 82nd.
