Mackenzy Bernadeau is joining the Jacksonville Jaguars, providing some offensive line depth to a unit that desperately needs it.
The deal is critical for the offensive line depth of the Jacksonville Jaguars. The team has struggled to find adequate players who can step up in the past. With the departure of guard Zane Beadles and the probably center Stefen Wisniewski as well, the Jags need a player who can provide further depth.
Mackenzy Bernadeau is that guy.
The Jaguars let some other big names, especially center Alex Mack, slip past them in free agency, and getting new talent along the offensive line was still one of the key things for general manager Dave Caldwell to do in free agency.
The former seventh round pick has spent time with the Carolina Panthers and the Dallas Cowboys, generally in a reserve role. Bernadeau has started 10 or more games in just three seasons. A veteran presence with starting experience is still valuable to the young Jaguars team, even entering year four of the rebuild under Caldwell and head coach Gus Bradley.

Depth on the O-Line isn’t sexy, but the big guys up front have a critical role in pass blocking and run blocking. Quarterback Blake Bortles and T.J. Yeldon will both benefit from having someone of Bernadeau’s experience up front if someone else is injured or as an extra lineman.
