When the legal tampering period began Monday the Jaguars were expected to make maybe one splash move and perhaps bring back a couple of their own guys. Things did not go as expected.
Here's a look at what the Jaguars have done since the legal tampering period started.
Signed: LG Andrew Norwell, WR Donte Moncrief, CB DJ Hayden
Re-signed: WR Marqise Lee
Lost: WR Allen Robinson, CB Aaron Colvin
Analysis: The Jaguars got worse at WR by letting their best offensive player, Allen Robinson, walk in free agency. They also got worse in their defensive backfield by losing Aaron Colvin. The Jaguars did, however, get serviceable replacements at both positions. Donte Moncrief has a knack for finding the end zone and also has upside at just 24 years old, but does have a history on injury. DJ Hayden is also serviceable in the slot, but doesn't have the upside that Aaron Colvin does. Both players are cheaper than the guys they replaced. The Jaguars also re-signed Marqise Lee for nearly $10 million per year. Lee led the NFL in drops in 2017 but has shown flashes over the last couple of years. The biggest signing by far is Andrew Norwell. The Jaguars offensive line, specifically on the interior, is much better than it was two days ago. The Jaguars want to run the ball and play defense and they're in a better position to do that now than they were before the legal tampering period started.
