The Gardner Minshew era could be soon coming to an end in Jacksonville.

According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, Minshew “wants a chance to compete for a starting job” and even missed the team’s OTAs last week. Fowler tapped in with one of his insiders with one team who believes it would take a fifth- or sixth-round pick to acquire the quarterback in a trade.

Fowler added that the 49ers looked into a deal for Minshew but instead decided to trade up in the draft, eventually selecting Trey Lance at No. 3 overall.

Over his first two seasons, Minshew has played in 23 games and totaled 37 touchdown passes with just 11 interceptions. The Jaguars were 1-7 in Minshew’s starts last season.

Now, Jacksonville has moved into a different era with new head coach Urban Meyer and No. 1 overall pick Lawrence.
