What happens to the Jacksonville Jaguars as NFL free agency begins in less than a month from now?
NFL free agency doesn’t officially begin until March 18, the first official day of the 2020 season. But that doesn’t mean the Jacksonville Jaguars haven’t been preparing for it to start for some time.
As a team with major needs on both sides of the ball, this is a franchise that must set the tone early through moves that improve the team while not breaking an already thin bank. General manager David Caldwell and head coach Doug Marrone have their work cut out for themselves in pushing the right buttons early and often.
The last thing the Jaguars need are players who are overpriced and underperform. We saw enough of that last season and how it crippled the roster.

Plenty of things may happen over the course of the next three-plus weeks that could redefine how this football team looks when the team kicks off the first game of the season. With two games in London, an unknown starter at quarterback and fans demanding that this team win or the entire front office and coaching staff get pink slips, there is plenty of pressure already from the city here in North Florida.
Look for Jacksonville to make impact moves that might not set the NFL on fire, but will help the franchise remain competitive all season, hopefully by challenging for a playoff berth.
There are still internal issues the team faces, which include the status of Yannick Ngakoue and making Calais Campbell’s contract work under the salary cap. Here are three bold predictions for the Jaguars through free agency.
