The Jaguars are likely to be sellers, rather than buyers, at the deadline but Westbrook’s injury leaves Jacksonville woefully thin at receiver.
If Westbrook is out for the season, Jacksonville would be down to just five healthy receivers.
What Jacksonville does have is plenty of picks to spare, currently owning 12 picks, including two fourth-round picks and two fifth-round picks, one of which could be used to pry away Tate and have a viable No. 4 receiver under team control for the next two years and a possible playmaker after the catch to insert in the lineup the rest of this season.
