The Jacksonville Jaguars will trade cornerback A.J. Bouye to the Denver Broncos. In return, Jacksonville will receive Denver’s 2020 fourth round pick. The trade cannot be made official until the new league year begins on March 18.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter broke the news on Tuesday afternoon.
The Broncos and Jaguars have agreed on a trade that would send cornerback A.J. Bouye to Denver for a 2020 fourth-round pick, league sources tell ESPN.
The trade cannot be processed until the new league year begins March 18th.

Including 2020, Bouye has two years left on his contract. In each of the two remaining years, he is owed $13 million. He also will be paid bonuses if he makes the roster. That brings his total cap hit through 2021 to just below $27 million.
Bouye played in 14 games in 2019, collecting one interception, eight passes defended and 65 combined tackles. His best year came in 2017, his first year as a Jaguar. He hauled in six interceptions and 18 passes defended on his way to his only Pro Bowl selection.
As stated above, the trade will not go through until March 18. It is unlikely Denver will restructure his contract after Bouye officially becomes a Bronco.
