The Jacksonville Jaguars hired Greg Olson as their offensive coordinator and soon after added Kelly Skipper as their running backs coach.

With Olson and Skipper both on the coaching staff, the Jaguars could look at a number of Oakland Raiders free agents this offseason to add to their team. Who could they be? Here's the full list of free agents for 2015:

Player Age Position Cap Hit Status
Charles Woodson 38 S $3,500,000 UFA
Pat Sims 29 DT $2,000,000 UFA
Darren McFadden 27 RB $1,718,000 UFA
Denarius Moore 26 WR $1,478,513 UFA
Stefen Wisniewski 25 C $1,315,810 UFA
Vincent Brown 26 WR $875,005 UFA
David Ausberry 27 TE $656,475 UFA
Andre Holmes 26 WR $645,000 RFA
Chimdi Chekwa 26 CB $645,000 RFA
C.J. Wilson 27 DE $635,000 UFA
Rod Streater 26 WR $573,333 RFA
Marquette King 26 P $570,344 ERFA
Jamize Olawale 25 FB $570,000 ERFA
Kory Sheets 29 RB $525,000 RFA
Neiko Thorpe 24 CB $495,000 RFA
Matt McCants 25 C $495,000 ERFA
Brandian Ross 25 S $469,412 RFA
Brian Leonhardt 24 TE $420,000 ERFA
Larry Asante 26 S $293,471 RFA
Denico Autrey 24 DE $247,058 ERFA
Spencer Hadley 25 OLB $49,411 ERFA

Honestly, there's no one on this list who jumps out as a guy who could make a huge impact for the Jaguars, let alone become a starter. Tight end Brian Leonhardt could be signed for depth. Wide receiver Rod Streater had a good 2013 before injuries forced him to miss all of but three games last year. Running back Darren McFadden won't be getting any looks because it isn't 2011 anymore.

On the defensive side of the ball, the only player who jumps out is C.J. Wilson, who had 10 pressures last year but his strengths are that of a run-stuffer. Pat Sims played in all 16 games, and could generate some interest among more than just the Jaguars.

And, no, Marquette King isn't much of an upgrade over Bryan Anger, although King only had three touchbacks in 2014 which was only one more than league leader Michael Koenen of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
