Since the Jaguars are now in the process of evaluating players and their worth - could more trades be in the works for this franchise before the team plays at St. Louis on Sunday?As a fan and someone who covers this team daily, I get the sense we are finally going to get to see how the David Caldwell/Gus Bradley plan is going to work.While fans (including my brother) are questioning what the reason was behind trading the team’s best offensive linemen, the fact is Monroe is a good left tackle who may have provided the best value for this team.Caldwell and Bradley will determine if players in the final year of their contract or players who are too high a salary cap figure for the 2014 season could be traded for picks and or players. And if you really want to make a case for this being a good thing, teams like Seattle and New England do it and it works to their advantage.David Caldwell comes from Atlanta where he knew a thing or two about players in the draft and free agency. His resume is impressive and the fans of this city are just going to have to sit back and as 1010XL.com’s Rick Ballou has stated before, “Stay the course.”According to Jaguars.com, Caldwell spent the past five seasons (2008-12) with the Atlanta Falcons. Previously with the Carolina Panthers and Indianapolis Colts, Caldwell has been with teams that went to the playoffs in 13 of his 17 NFL seasons in Carolina, Indianapolis and Atlanta.Caldwell, 38, served the 2012 season as the Falcons director of player personnel where he was responsible for both college and pro scouting efforts under Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff. Caldwell spent his first four seasons with the Falcons as the director of college scouting overseeing Atlanta’s college area and regional scouts. His primary role was evaluating the hundreds of draft-eligible college players on an annual basis.If this is not the end of the trades that this team will conduct in the near future, here are three that might make the most sense.Maurice Jones-Drew to the Cleveland Browns for a 3rd Round PickThe Browns are the talk of the NFL. The new quarterback in Brian Hoyer and speed in Josh Gordon and Greg Little on the outside has Willis McGahee as its starter at running back.The Jaguars cannot open holes for 2011 rushing champion. A new scenery may do both teams some good. Jones-Drew is in the final year of his contract and may not be re-signed by the team.Marcedes Lewis to New England for a 4th Round PickThis makes sense if the tight end is healthy. The Jaguars used a lot of money to sign him to a new deal after 2010 and a Pro Bowl season. He has not been able to produce since. Injuries and lack of concentration have gotten him to where he is now in this league.New England could use him and his huge frame to not only become another red zone target, but he is one of the better blockers at the position in the NFL. If his calf gets healthy, this could be a real steal for the Patriots, who just continue to bring players in and get good results.Jason Babin to Dallas for a 3rd Round PickInjuries to George Selvie, Anthony Spencer and DeMarcus Ware have made a solid defense a little suspect. Babin is the most penalized defensive player in the league and would be ideal in Dallas.At 33 years old, I do not see Babin a part of this team’s future and he would immediately benefit the Cowboys in their quest to get to the Super Bowl.
