The Jacksonville Jaguars have plenty of cap space in 2021 but they can still make room for more.
Things are starting to look up for the Jacksonville Jaguars after finishing the 2020 season with a 1-15 record. They hired the head coach they wanted in Urban Meyer and their front office is now led by general manager Trent Baalke. They currently hold 11 draft picks, including the first overall selection, in the 2021 NFL Draft and are projected to have $73 million in cap space.
The ‘Jags’ will be able to be active in free agency due to their amount of cap space. They could make a couple of splash signings and bring in a couple of difference-makers to contribute right away. However, they can create even more cap space by releasing a few players.
Last season, the team’s brass traded a handful of players in order to save money. However, they didn’t inject the savings back into the roster and refrained from making meaningful additions other than linebacker Joe Schobert and tight end Tyler Eifert.
This year should be different though, Jacksonville has the resources to be aggressive in free agency and should get as many playmakers as they can. Releasing these three players would help them do so.
