If you expected the Jacksonville Jaguars to be active in free agency, you haven’t been disappointed. After placing the franchise tag on left tackle Cam Robinson, the Jaguars have gone on to re-sign cornerback Tre Herndon and offensive lineman Tyler Shatley, defensive end Dawuane Smoot, and cornerback Sidney Jones.

Keeping their own players isn’t the only meaningful move the Jags have made this offseason though. In the two days of legal tampering ahead of free agency, they have fortified their defensive front by agreeing to terms with defensive tackle Roy Robertson-Harris, defensive end Jihad Ward, defensive tackle Tyson Alualu, and trading for defensive tackle Malcolm Brown.

The Jags also bolster their secondary and reached agreements with safety Rudy Ford, and cornerback Shaquil Griffin. On the offensive side of the ball, they signed tight end Chris Manhertz, and wide receivers Jamal Agnew and Marvin Jones.

Jaguars general manager Trent Baalke said in his most recent sit-down with the local media that the team would be looking for value in the open market and the team’s additions so far back that up. Other than Griffin’s three-year $44.5 million deal, none of the contracts Jacksonville has handed are of the blockbuster variety.

However, free agency is just officially starting and the Jaguars still have plenty of work left to do. Here are three position groups they still need to address in free agency.
