The Jacksonville Jaguars take their first step towards the 2014 regular season on Friday night, as the host the Tampa Bay Bucanneers in week 1 of the preseason. The Jaguars have a plethora of new faces ready to play big roles for the franchise in 2014, and we’ll get our first look at some of them tonight.
While Chad Henne is the starter, we’ll get to see plenty of first round pick and quarterback of the future Blake Bortles. Unfortunately, the team will be without 3 key offensive skill players in wide receivers Cecil Shorts III and Allen Robinson, as well as running back Toby Gerhart.
Defensively, the Jaguars have a handful of new players on the front 7. Free agent acquisitions Chris Clemons, Red Bryant, and Ziggy Hood are all expected to play significant roles in the upcoming season and need to show they are comfortable in their limited preseason action.
