The Jacksonville Jaguars spent $173.8M in free agency, but still whiffed on their biggest need -
After missing on Olivier Vernon and Robert Ayers in free agency, the Jaguars have no choice but to pursue other avenues to upgrade the pass rush.

How do the Jaguars fix their pass rush now? -
The Jacksonville Jaguars did well filling a lot of gaps in free agency. They've got their complementary running back in Chris Ivory. They've got one of the best interior defensive linemen in Malik Jackson. They signed a potential long-term fixture at free safety in Tashaun Gipson. But their biggest need in edge rusher went unaddressed. In fact, they've likely lost their two starting edge rushers from last year in Andre Branch and Chris Clemons.

Prince Amukamara betting on himself after signing one-year deal -
Prince Amukamara knows that when he’s healthy he’s one of the better cornerbacks in the NFL, but he also knows that he has to prove that he can stay healthy. That’s why he turned down multiyear offers from several teams to sign a one-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars. If he can play 16 games, then he’ll find himself with multiyear contract offers that are significantly better than he ones he got this offseason.
