Multiple team executives around the NFL believe the Jacksonville Jaguars are making cornerback C.J. Henderson available via trade, sources told ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

Things are reportedly good between the team and Henderson, leaving the possibility he remains in Jacksonville. While the team does like its corners, the defensive back would garner interest, according to Fowler.

Henderson, who was recently activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list, is just one year into his rookie contract after being the ninth overall selection in the 2020 NFL Draft.

The 22-year-old started all eight contests he played in 2020. He tallied 36 tackles, six pass defenses, and one interception.

Henderson finished the 2020 season on injured reserve after suffering a groin injury in November.

The secondary also boasts Sidney Jones and free-agent acquisition Shaquill Griffin. Jacksonville selected Georgia cornerback Tyson Campbell in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
