3. Jacksonville Jaguars
Another AFC South team that could be in play for Rudolph’s services is the Jacksonville Jaguars, who need offensive playmakers, period. The Jaguars didn’t have a dynamic supporting cast a year ago, and they have already lost Austin Sefarian-Jenkins in free agency.
The current starter at tight end for Jacksonville is either Ben Koyack or former Cowboy Geoff Swaim, neither of whom offers a ton of potential as a pass catcher. Rudolph can open up the middle of the field for the Jaguars, which would allow receivers like Marqise Lee and Dede Westbrook to get deeper on the outside.
Quarterback Nick Foles would also benefit from a safety net in the middle of the field, much like he had in Philadelphia with Zach Ertz. Rudolph isn’t as skilled as Ertz, who is still in his prime for the Eagles, but he does offer a dependable set of hands.
The Jaguars also like to view themselves as a power running team, and Rudolph’s presence would help them open up running lanes for Leonard Fournette. The AFC South is definitely a winnable division, so the Jaguars should take a look at landing Rudolph to try and bolster their chances of capturing the title and bringing playoff football back to Jacksonville.
