Jaguars offseason: Mike Tannenbaum talks free agency and draft Part 2
It’s not hyperbole to say this is going to arguably be the most important offseason in Jacksonville Jaguars history when you take into account all the assets they have to turn their fortunes around. Fortunately, Black and Teal had the chance to talk to former NFL executive Mike Tannenbaum to make sense of the Jags’ hectic offseason.
The Jaguars have a new head coach in Urban Meyer and hired Trent Baalke as their general manager after the 2020 season ended. They also have the first overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and a plethora of cap space — even after slapping left tackle Cam Robinson with the franchise tag — to make significant moves in free agency.
If the Jags make the right moves and hit on most of their decisions, they will have the chance to turn into a perennial contender. On the other hand, not taking advantage of the vast amount of resources they have at their disposal could set them back for years.
Black and Teal asked Tannenbaum what he thought of the Urban Meyer hire, the gravity of drafting Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, the positions the Jaguars should address in free agency, and more. Here is the first part of the conversation. Without further ado, here’s the second part.
