Correa vs Steelers

Kamalei Correa has been traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Kamalei Correa's wish has been granted as the Tennessee Titans traded him to the Jacksonville Jaguars the same day he asked the club to deal him.

As part of the transaction, the Titans will receive the Jaguars' sixth-round pick in 2021 and will send their seventh to Jacksonville in the deal.

Correa was taken off the team's Covid-19 reserve list before Tuesday night's game against the Buffalo Bills, but was declared inactive for the game, a 42-16 victory.

Correa, a former second-round pick of the Baltimore Ravens, was acquired by the Titans in 2018 and was a part of their outside linebacker rotation for the previous two seasons. Correa had his best season in 2019, when he recorded five sacks in the regular season and two more in the Titans' three playoff games.

Correa played consistently under former defensive coordinator Dean Pees, whom he had also played for with the Ravens. Correa was a free agent after last season, but wound up re-signing with the Titans on a one-year, $2.25 million contract.

Pees retired after last season, and the Titans splurged in the free agent market to bring in outside linebackers Jadeveon Clowney and Vic Beasley, causing Correa's playing time to diminish this season.

He was one of the first Titans player added to the Covid-19 list after a positive test and was taken off the list just before the game Tuesday.

Correa is projected as a potential starter for the Jaguars at outside linebacker.
