The start of free agency is literally a week away! Brace yourselves folks, because the rumors are about to start flying in hot and heavy, and with the Jaguars having a ton of cap space, they’re likely to be mentioned quite a bit. The latest report to pertain to the Jags and free agency is that the team will be one of several big players in the guard market.

This shouldn't really be a surprise, and in fact is likely what a lot of fans want to hear. The Jaguar definitely need to bring in some interior lineman, and this year’s free agency crop contains quite a few names that will likely score big deals. Kevin Zeitler from Cincinnati, TJ Lang from Green Bay, Larry Warford from Detroit, and Ronald Leary from Dallas are all guys that are set to cash in next week. The bad news for the Jaguars is that they haven't been a very good team, which may deter certain guys from signing here. The good news for the Jaguars is that they have a mountain of cap space, and can easily win almost any bidding war.

When you add together the fact that the Jags have a ton of money to spend and a big need for a guard, it seems more than likely that they will end up with one of the four guys mentioned above.
