What is the one mistake the Jaguars made this offseason?

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Jacksonville Jaguars Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars have made some surprising and interesting moves this offseason in NFL free agency, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the moves were bad. Sure, some fans will agree with some moves and heavily question others, but right now it’s way too early to tell how any of them will actually work out on the field.

But it’s never too early to yell about which ones we think won’t!

So, of the moves the Jaguars have made so far this offseason, which is the one you think is going to come back and bite them?

For me, I’m sure most everyone already knows. I just still can’t get on board with paying Marqise Lee what they ended up paying him, even though I fully understand that’s what the wide receiver market dictated. Not that I think Lee is awful or not a useful wide receiver on the depth chart, but more so that... I just don’t think he’s that good?

Lee screams classic WR2 to me, when watching him play and what he’s successful at. He will have the occasional game where he wows you with a play or a catch, but he also has just as many if not more frustrating drops or something else.

I think the $18 million guaranteed over two years is a bit rich, but the Jaguars also understand they’re in a window and they needed to keep/add a wide receiver to their roster and Lee was the best of what remained after Allen Robinson and Sammy Watkins exceeded the Jaguars price tag.

I don’t think the Jaguars will get themselves in cap trouble or anything with the deal, it just feels like a bad deal from the get go and I have a hard time seeing Lee make it worthwhile. But then again, that’s how free agency works. You always over pay.
