The most disappointing team in 2018 was the Jacksonville Jaguars. After having the Patriots up on the ropes in the AFC championship game the year prior, the team scuffled and went 5-11 in 2018. Free agency will be a challenge as they currently have the worst cap situation in the NFL.
Nick Foles, QB
Blake Bortles was bad in 2018, which resulted in his benching. Cody Kessler got some starts in his place, but that just amplified the team’s need for a quarterback.
The thought is that with a strong quarterback and the players already on the roster, the team could be right back towards the top of the league in 2019. Foles and the Jags have also been heavily linked this offseason.
Foles is set to be a free agent, and the Jaguars need to get him alongside John DeFilippo again and make a run in 2019.
Jeff Heuerman, TE
Austin Seferian-Jenkins only played in five games last season and he was underwhelming when he did take the field. His absence really put the team behind at the position, and now they are in the market for a tight end again this offseason.
Heuerman may be one of the only options that is within the team’s price range. with 31 receptions, 281 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games last season, he may be able to produce more with a full season.
D.J. Fluker, OG
A.J. Cann is a free agent, and the team doesn’t really have the cap space to go spend on one of the top guards on the market. Andrew Norwell and Brandon Linder carried the load for the offensive line in 2018.
Fluker’s best days are well behind him. However, he will benefit from playing alongside Norwell and Linder. While a member of the Chargers, he was a consistent player, but he struggled the past two seasons with the Giants and the Seahawks.
