It’s time for the Jacksonville Jaguars to bring in some difference-makers.

Things are taking shape for the Jacksonville Jaguars. They have made significant changes to their coaching staff and front office after finishing the 2020 season 1-15. They have a new head coach in Urban Meyer and they hired Trent Baalke as their general manager.

Now that a new regime is in place, the ‘Jags’ can focus their attention to start collecting talent. Although injuries played a part in the team’s struggles last season, their dearth of talent made it difficult for them to win many games. That should change in 2021, as they are projected to have $73 million in cap space and 11 draft selections.

This Jacksonville team will have the chance to quickly turn things around if they make the right moves in free agency. Last season, they refrained from being active but they will have an abundance of cap space in 2021. They can make a couple of big-name signings and still have enough money to bring in a few other players.

The Las Vegas Raiders are $7 million in the red and may have a hard time keeping some of their key free agents, which is something the Jaguars should take advantage of. Here are the three best Jacksonville should target.
