Jaguars Trade CB Josiah Scott To Eagles

The Jaguars have agreed to trade cornerback Josiah Scott to the Eagles (Twitter link via ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter). In exchange, the Eagles will send fellow cornerback Jameson Houston to Jacksonville, along with a 2023 sixth-round pick.

Scott will help to solidify the Eagles’ CB group, although it’s a less splashy than their reported interest in veteran Steven Nelson. The ex-Chief/Steeler has been a solid starter in the league, ranked as Pro Football Focus’ No. 11 cornerback over the last two years. Scott, meanwhile, is heading into his second year after appearing in six games as a rookie reserve. The 2020 fourth-round pick finished last year with a grand total of eleven tackles, including one tackle for a loss.

Houston, meanwhile, went undrafted last year. Then, he got a mini-tour around the country by signing deals with the Browns, Panthers and Eagles. The 5’11” corner saw his first live action with Birds, suiting up for three games down the stretch. The bulk of his time came in Week 16, when he was on the field for 35% of the snaps against Washington.

Jaguars Sign Rookie Josiah Scott

The Jaguars have signed fourth-round pick Josiah Scott, according to a team announcement. Per the terms of his slot, Scott is slated to earn roughly $3.9MM over the course of his four-year deal.

The Jags are expected to use Scott as a nickel specialist and special teams player. He can’t stick every receiver at 5’9″, but he’s tough and scrappy with an advanced football IQ for his age. Scott, the No. 137 overall pick in the draft, left Michigan State after tallying six picks across three seasons.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell sees Scott as a solid value pick. Had it not been for a torn meniscus in his sophomore season, Scott could have wound up going much higher. Today, he’s healthy, and still crazy fast – his 4.42 second 40-yard-dash was the fifth-best showing at the combine in February.

Here’s the full rundown of the Jaguars’ draft class, via PFR’s tracker:

1-9: C.J. Henderson, CB (Florida): Signed
1-20: K’Lavon Chaisson, DE (LSU)
2-42: Laviska Shenault, WR (Colorado): Signed
3-73: Davon Hamilton, DT (Ohio State): Signed
4-116: Ben Bartch, OT (St. John’s (MN)): Signed
4-137: Josiah Scott, CB (Michigan State): Signed
4-140: Shaquille Quarterman, ILB (Miami): Signed
5-157: Daniel Thomas, S (Auburn)
5-165: Collin Johnson, WR (Texas): Signed
6-189: Jake Luton, QB (Oregon State)
6-206: Tyler Davis, TE (Georgia Tech): Signed
7-223: Chris Claybrooks, CB (Memphis)
