The list of things the Jacksonville Jaguars must accomplish this offseason is long and full of questions that must be answered.

The off-season priorities for the Jacksonville Jaguars haven’t changed since the end of the 2019 campaign, however, they may have been accentuated after watching how effective the use of a tight end and a solid run defense can help a team reach the Super Bowl.

There are plenty of holes to fill on both sides of the football. And over the next five weeks the front office, with the addition of Trent Baalke as the teams’ director of player personnel, will identify which positions receive first attention.

I know it has not been discussed, but the news on Tuesday of the team‘s decision to play two home games in London next season could impact how successful the team is in free agency. Remaining across the pond for two straight weeks will affect his team mentally, emotionally and physically.

Once the Jaguars figure out which positions to target first, the decision over which players to target will become more focused. Jacksonville‘s front office must hit on free agent talents that will be cost-effective, that can solve problems with the run defense, a pass-catching tight end, stability on both lines and depth all around the roster.
