The Jacksonville Jaguars aren’t the only ones going hard for Cincinnati Bengals free agent guard Kevin Zeitler. According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the Indianapolis Colts and Cleveland Browns are also entering the foray.
Guard Kevin Zeitler will do quite well on the open market. Hearing the Colts, Jags and Browns are in on him— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) March 8, 2017
Zeitler is going to command a lot of money, folks. And honestly that’s okay.
There are a lot of players at the guard position that will be available in free agency, but for the cream of the crop teams are going to have to pay, obviously. The Jaguars are in a position, as are a lot of teams, with a boatload of cap space to be able to reel in one of the big fish at guard. I'm sure a lot of people will wrinkle their brow at the cost of a guard in free agency, but you have to over pay in free agency and in reality the Jaguars are in a situation where they can afford to over spend without hurting their future.
In the end, don't worry about the cost. It doesn't matter.
