We have a Monday morning NFL trade.

The Carolina Panthers are in need of some secondary help, after losing first round pick Jaycee Horn to an injury during Thursday night's win over the Houston Texans.

Carolina is reportedly trading for some help. According to a report from NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Panthers are closing in on a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Panthers are reportedly trading for Jaguars cornerback C.J. Henderson. The 22-year-old defensive back was the 9th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft out of Florida.

Rapoport had the full details.

"CAR TE Dan Arnold and a third-round pick to the Jaguars for the former Jax first-round pick Henderson and a fifth-rounder. Immediate help in Carolina, while Henderson starts new," he reports.

The Panthers are 3-0, but have dealt with a couple of crushing injuries. Carolina also lost Christian McCaffrey to a hamstring injury on Thursday night.

The front office remains confident in the team, though, and is making moves now to fortify the roster.

Jacksonville, meanwhile, is in position to add some tight end help and a future draft pick for Henderson, who needed a fresh start elsewhere.
