A wide receiver
Three wide receivers on the Jaguars are set to become free agents at the conclusion of the 2020 season. Dede Westbrook, Chris Conley, and Keelan Cole are all playing on the final year of their contracts.
Conley is set to earn $2.75 million this season. In 2019, he caught 47 passes for 775 yards for an average of 16.5 yards a catch, a career-high, while being found in the endzone five times. He also contributed to a career-high 36 first downs.
Westbrook caught 66 passes for 660 yards and three touchdowns in 2019. He’s playing for $2.133 million. Meanwhile, Cole will be paid $3.259 million in 2020. Last year, he caught only 24 passes for 361 yards and three touchdowns.

Extending all of them is not going to happen as all three wideouts will be looking for more than they are currently making and the Jags probably won’t be able to please all three.
Still, it’s important the Jaguars attempt to extend one of them as it will be crucial to have a veteran wideout on the team, both for quarterback Gardner Minshew to succeed and for a rookie quarterback if that’s who they choose to select in the first round of next year’s draft.
