Jaguars Big Early Off-season

The Jacksonville Jaguars first couple of days this off-season they have been spending big money. The Jaguars’ first priority this off-season was to protect their second year quarterback Trevor Lawerence and give their defense some leverage. They signed Washington Commanders veteran guard Brandon Scherff and not much later that evening signed the NFL leading tackler Foyesade Oluokun from the Atlanta Falcons. Brandon Scherff has been in the league for seven years and maintained a starting job every year he played during his time with Washington. Linebacker Foyesade Oluokun was one of the bright spots of what was that lackluster defense that was the Atlanta Falcons. The Jaguars had the 17th ranked linebacker corps in the league and they have just released their starting middle linebacker Myles Jack who just signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers on March 16th. They later on signed former New York Jets defensive tackle Folorunso Fatukasi and then gave a massive four-year 72 million dollar contract with a max value of 84 million dollars to former Arizona Cardinals receiver Christian Kirk. Fatukasi and Kirk were both solid players at their respective positions, but fans are going to see if they can live up to the big money that they got this off-season. The Jaguars decided that their young quarterback needed more help and weapons around him so they went out and signed tight end Evan Engram and wide receiver Zay Jones, who had his best season yet in 2021 with the Las Vegas Raiders. Evan Engram on the other hand has gotten some criticism over the past couple of years since he’s barely played due to injury and because when he does actually play he doesn’t really stand out like the potential he has. The Jaguars are hoping for a big second year jump from quarterback Trevor Lawerence like how Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow did in 2021.
