The NFL's legal tampering period begins today. That means other teams will be able to begin preliminary negotiations with impending free agents. No deals can be agreed upon until the official start of the free agency period on Wednesday, but that likely won't stop several players and teams from all but finalizing things prior to Wednesday.
That means Jaguars free agents will be able to start talking to other teams today. Several of the Jaguars upcoming unrestricted free agents are likely to have a big market. The biggest will be Allen Robinson, who is only 24 years old and is viewed by many as an above average starting receiver. Nickel cornerback Aaron Colvin is also likely to have some heavy interest from teams, as is WR Marqise Lee.
Will the Jaguars be able to bring any of these players back? It seems like the team would have tried to get something done before allowing the rest of the league to compete for these players services if they actually had major interest in brining back any of them. But it's not unheard of for players to test the market only to return to their original team. Having said that, it's more likely than not that if these players are allowed to test free agency they will leave. All three of the Jaguars big name free agents are young, ascending players.
With the start of the legal tampering period the Jaguars will also be able to negotiate with other teams. At this point the Jaguars are in need of improvements at guard, tight end, receiver, linebacker and perhaps nickel cornerback (if Colvin walks). There are several impressive players at both guard and tight end and a couple of intriguing receivers set to hit the market.
