AFC South

Houston Texans: Keke Coutee, WR

The Houston Texans revamped their wide receiver room in 2020, trading away De’Andre Hopkins already to the Arizona Cardinals.

Could they trade another receiver?

After acquiring players like Brandin Cooks and Randall Cobb, it’s possible that Keke Coutee could be on the move. Coutee has intriguing speed and quickness as well as two years of team control on his contract. A team in need of receiver depth could help Houston get back a draft pick or two in exchange for Coutee’s services in 2020 and 2021.

Jacksonville Jaguars: Yannick Ngakoue, DE / Leonard Fournette, RB

The Jaguars get two players here because it’s tough to decide which player is more likely to be gone before the start of the 2020 season.

Both Ngakoue and Fournette seem to have short-term futures with the Jaguars at best and both have been the subject of trade rumors all offseason.

The Jaguars could probably get pretty good value for both guys and especially if teams suffer injuries early at running back, Fournette could be traded before too long.

Ngakoue’s contract situation makes him tougher to trade, but there would undoubtedly be teams interested if the Jaguars actually made him available.

Tennessee Titans: Corey Davis, WR

The Titans don’t really have a great trade candidate on the roster right now, unless there are some back-end players other NFL teams have been eyeing. As far as high-profile players? Former first-round pick Corey Davis is set to count over $8 million on the 2020 salary cap and even with over $4 million in dead money, the Titans could save over $4 million by trading him.

Davis hasn’t yet reached 1,000 yards in three NFL seasons and the Titans have a budding superstar at receiver in AJ Brown. Davis is certainly talented but may need a change of scenery to excel in the NFL.

Indianapolis Colts: Jacoby Brissett, QB

I don’t know what the Colts’ plan is for Jacoby Brissett, but with the additions of Philip Rivers and Jacob Eason, it seemed like the writing was clearly on the wall.

Though some team would take on over $8 million, Brissett could be a starter for some team this season in a pinch and the Colts have both Rivers and Eason around to build their QB room going forward.

It seemed like Brissett would be traded long before August but the fact that he’s still a Colt makes his potential departure a lot less likely. Until some team makes an offer the Colts can’t refuse.
