Report: Northcutt Traded To Lions

Dennis Northcutt is no longer a Jacksonville Jaguar.

According to John Clayton of, the Jaguars have traded the veteran wide receiver to the Detroit Lions.

And the Lions have compensated the Jaguars by sending them safety Gerald Alexander.

Alexander and Northcutt share the same agent, Jerome Stanley.  Per
the report, which cited sources, Stanley was surprised that Alexander
was included in the trade.

Per the report, the Lions were unwilling to give up a draft pick.  So, that’s how the rare player-for-player swap developed.

According to Clayton, the trade terms were completed today.  However,
the deal won’t be official until next week when it’s ratified by league
