As many of my fellow Jaguar family members out there are probably aware of there will likely be much (and by much I mean an a freakin lot) of offensive turn-over and uncertainty going into the off-season for the Jacksonville Jaguars offense. Being pretty much last in any measurable offensive category not including MJD will do that for you. We all know what the Jaguars offensive story this offseason will be: O-line merry-go-round must be fixed, WR core dismantling (about time), non-existent TE play, and a rookie QB who had to improve these last few weeks just to LOOK like a rookie must improve. But earlier today on jaguars.com's O-zone I read that we're set to be potentially losing a few guys on our #4 ranked defense.As it stands Jeremy Mincey, Matt Roth, Dwight Lowery, William Middleton, and Rashean Mathis are all set to be free agents as of the finale of this post season.
I personally believe that resigning Mincey is a top priority (not to say he's defensive player of the year but the kid can play and has a Everlast motor). I also believe that resigning Lowery and Middleton would be pretty important to our defense, though they both may not show up every play they definitely do their job well... Mathis is basically gonna come down to his asking price and what he looks like in his rehabbing and workouts.
I think this is the order our new coaching staff should pursue:
2) Roth (seeing as Kampman may be gone and even if he is here we'll still need d-line depth)
3) Middleton (quality corner, depth, and Mathis may be gone)
4) Lowery (No safety depth whatsoever, Chris Prosinski isn't ready for a starting role yet anyways)
5) Possibly Mathis, if at all
Anyone disagree or don't agree with re-signing one of them (I know Mincey's a slam dunk, pretty much)?
