2. The Jaguars’ next head coach will have vast resources at his disposal.
Ok, you got the owner that will give you time to implement your vision but you will also have a vast amount of resources at your disposal, who wouldn’t want to work under those circumstances.
This isn’t to say the Jaguars are like the Silicon Valley startup that will offer big office spaces, a cafeteria, and a lounge to get to stay more hours. Far from it. Instead, their next head coach will have the third-most cap space in the league, according to Spotract. In addition, the Jags don’t have many pressing free-agent decisions to make outside of maybe wide receiver DJ Chark, left tackle Cam Robinson and left guard. The front office could bring back the three of them and have more than enough room to sign a couple of big-name free agents in the open market. But wait, there’s more.
The Jaguars are set to have a top 5 pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. It could be one as high as the second overall and not lower than the fourth. This will leave them in a position to take a difference-maker on either offense or defense. Garrett Wilson of Ohio State would give their wide receiver corps a boost but left tackle Evan Neal could fortify their offensive line. Similarly, they could pair Pro Bowl outside linebacker Josh Allen with one of the two top prospects in next year’s selection meeting, Aidan Hutchinson or Kayvon Thibodeaux.
Simply put, the Jaguars’ next head coach will have the resources to oversee a quick makeover.
