4 NFL free agents Jacksonville Jaguars should still consider
The Jacksonville Jaguars could get some help on offense too.
It’s easy to forget how much of a difference-maker tight end Delanie Walker was for the Tennesse Titans after dealing with lesions the last two years. He missed pretty much the whole 2018 season after breaking his right ankle in the opener. Things didn’t get much better in 2019 and missed nine games as he continued to deal with injuries to the same ankle.
Back in 2017, Walker hauled in 74 catches for 807 yards and three touchdowns. Also, he had more than 800 receiving yards from 2014 to 2017, so it’s clear he can contribute. While the Jaguars already have a tight end that is nursing injuries in Tyler Eifert, it could be worth it to bring in Walker.
This one is an interesting one as Trumaine Johnson didn’t fare well in his time with the New York Jets. Then again that is true for pretty much every player that has dressed up for the ‘Gang Green’ during the head coach Adam Gase era. While Johnson has to bear some responsibility for his lack of results with the Jets, he should get the benefit of the doubt.
Johnson could provide an upgrade for a Jaguars secondary that is in transition. Cornerback C.J. Henderson has been solid but the Jags need to play someone opposite of him. Sidney Jones has been adequate in limited playing time but it’s uncertain whether he would thrive in an expanded role. Johnson could hold one of the defense’s cornerback spots.
