The Jaguars have plenty of money to spend, but no players on which to spend it. The Ravens have the opposite problem. Per a source with knowledge of the salary-cap numbers available to each team as of Friday, June 22, the Jaguars lead the way with $25.1 million. In contract, the Ravens have only $606,000.

In Jacksonville, we could fit quarterback Blaine Gabbert or rookie punter Bryan Anger into this category. But I think either would be a force. The Gabbert talk is wishful thinking, sure, but it’s also a new staff showing off its positive outlook about its potential franchise quarterback. Anger is a third-round draft pick and they have to defend his selection. The guy who fits this is defensive end Aaron Morgan, who was on IR last season with a shoulder injury. This is the third offseason in a row a team in need at his position has talked him up. GM Gene Smith called him a bright spot in the offseason.
