The Jacksonville Jaguars did a good job of upgrading their roster in free agency. After all, they needed to add as much talent and depth as they could get after finishing 1-15 last season and free agency helped them address plenty of needs, but how much did the team improve?

There’s no doubt the Jags look in better shape than they did a few months ago. Their defensive front now has solid depth and defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi will have plenty of talent to work with when you take into account defensive ends Josh Allen and K’Lavon Chaisson will have a big role in 2021. The Jaguars secondary also looks better after signing cornerback Shaquill Griffin and Rayshawn Jenkins. Sidney Jones and Tre Herndon are also back and safety Rudy Ford will likely play an important role on special teams.

The Jaguars’ offense didn’t get as many upgrades as the defense but still got a few important additions. Marvin Jones Jr. is now part of a talented receiver corps and tight end Chris Manhertz should play an important role in short-yardage and red-zone situations. Moreover, the team’s brass kept the offensive line intact after franchise-tagging Cam Robinson.

The Jaguars should be pleased with all the work they put in in free agency, as the roster looks noticeable better, but it’s fair to wonder if they could’ve done a better job. They had the most cap space in the NFL and could have added a few more difference makers in free agency.

While it wouldn’t be feasible to chase every big-name in the open market, there are a few players they could’ve gotten that could have had a big impact for them. Here are four players the Jags could regret not signing in free agency.
