CJ Henderson Traded to Panthers
The Panthers have reacted to Jaycee Horn's broken foot by trading for another former first-round cornerback, Jacksonville's CJ Henderson. Henderson and a fifth-round pick go to the Panthers while tight end Dan Arnold and a third-round pick go to the Jaguars. Henderson was the Jaguars' first pick in the 2020 NFL draft, and to say that he had an up-and-down (short) career in Jacksonville would be an understatement. He dealt with a lot of injuries and off-field stuff that made it hard to get things rolling. Jacksonville desperately needed a tight end who can be a factor in the passing game, so in comes Arnold. It’s a damning indictment on the previous regime in trading Henderson, however. You don't normally trade a ninth overall pick after one year.
