Quantcast

I guess we should give the entire Jaguars organization a big hug before kickoff on Sunday.

No, it's not to console them on the beat-down that the Patriots will undoubtedly lay on them, but really for serving Rob Gronkowski and Julien Edelman to us on a silver platter.

Mike DiRocco of ESPN.com rejogged a lot of people's memories by telling them about a trade that went down back in 2009 between these two teams.

Jacksonville wanted to trade up and select cornerback Derek Cox and did so by giving New England their second-round pick in 2010 and seventh-round pick in 2009 for their third rounder. Cox never really lived up to the elite-corner hype for the Jags only playing 4 seasons.

Who were the two players the Patriots selected with the Jaguars picks you ask?

In the seventh round of the 2009 draft, New England selected a quarterback out of Kent State by the name of Julien Edelman.

The next year, New England traded the Jags second round pick and their sixth-rounder to Oakland for the Raiders second-round pick. They player they chose: Robert Gronkowski tight end out of Arizona. 

This has to be the most lopsided trade in NFL history.

Derek Cox for Gronk and Edelman? Jaguars are going Jaguars I guess.
