Similar to their defensive line, Licht made their offensive line an obvious area of improvement this offseason. For reference, Tampa Bay signed Sua Opeta, Ben Bredeson, and Justin Skule in free agency, and drafted Graham Barton and Elijah Klein in the draft.

Yes, those moves are great on their own, and the Bucs will have one of the best tackle duos in the league with Tristan Wirfs and Luke Goedeke. Still, adding one more offensive lineman ahead of the 2024 season would still be a worthwhile move, especially with the added pressure to protect Baker Mayfield in year two.

The best offensive lineman on the trade market is Jacksonville's Robinson, who has been a stalwart tackle for the Jaguars since entering the league in 2017. Robinson, the No. 34 pick in the 2017 draft, has started 84 games at right tackle for Jacksonville, playing over 5,100 snaps. Robinson was even publicly endoresed by head coach Doug Pederson as one of Jacksonville's most important players in 2024.

"He has to -- he's like Trevor (Lawrence) -- he understands that hey, his role is to help this team win and can't put the team, can't put the players, can't put us in situations that he did last year," he said. "Now the injury is out of anybody's control but talking about the suspension, right, and it's about being a pro. And listen, these are conversations that Cam, we know, he's had and we've had, you know. I definitely like having him on the team. He's fun to be around, brings a lot of energy out there and it makes us better."

That said, Robinson has shown considerable improvement since signing a three-year, $54 million contract in May 2021. Per Pro Football Focus, Robinson has earned grades of 67.4, 67.2, and 64.5 over the past three seasons, a visible improvement from marks of 61.7, 54.8, 63.4, and 53.2 from 2020 to 2017.

Like Indianapolis, Jacksonville simply has a surplus of talent at the tackle positions, with 2021 second-round pick Walker Little and 2023 first-round pick Anton Harrison headlining the next tackles up. With the Jaguars needing to sign quarterback Trevor Lawrence to an expensive extension soon, the 28-year-old Robinson could be disposable to save Jacksonville nearly $21.9 million in cap space.
