On the same day, Kamalei Correa sent in his exchange request, it was granted. Wednesday afternoon, Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network reported that the Tennessee Titans linebacker was traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jason La Canfora, CBS Sports NFL Insider confirmed the report. According to Mark Long of the Associated Press, the Jaguars traded a 2021 sixth-round pick to the Titans in exchange for Correa and Tennessee’s seventh-round pick in 2021.

Correa was listed as inactive when the Titans took the field last night against the Buffalo Bills, and he was recently activated from the COVID-19 / reserve list. Still, the fact that he was inactive in the Titans’ dominant 42-16 win in Week 5 was apparently the last straw for the veteran, and he asked to be traded or released the next day.

Correa, 26, started in five of the 16 games he played last season, and he’s recorded a career-high 37 combined tackles and five sacks. He was originally selected by the Baltimore Ravens in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft and spent two seasons in Baltimore before being traded to the Titans for a sixth-round pick ahead of the 2018 season. He earned an overtime d ‘one year this offseason after his year in the career, but other additions during the offseason have called into question his place in the passing rotation.

The Titans came out and signed former Atlanta Falcons passing defenseman Vic Beasley and also added Jadeveon Clowney at the end of the offseason. In three games this season, Correa has recorded just two combined tackles.

Correa will step in and immediately serve as a veteran presence among the young but talented Jaguars smuggler crews. Josh Allen, Dawuane Smoot, K’Lavon Chaisson and Myles Jack have potential, but have also combined for just five sacks in the first five weeks of the 2020 NFL season.
