The Jacksonville Jaguars are almost ready for this year’s free agency. They’ve started restructuring deals to free up space and get their salary cap in order. While the team’s brass is doing their best to keep their group from last year together, there’s a strong chance wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. won’t return in 2023.
Jones signed a two-year deal worth $13.5 million in 2021 and he led the team in catches (73), receiving yards (832), and receiving touchdowns (four). However, his production decreased last year due to the arrival of Christian Kirk and Zay Jones in free agency.
With Kirk and Jones firmly entrenched as the top two receiving options and the potential reinstatement of Calvin Ridley, there might no longer be room for Jones in Jacksonville. Make no mistake though, Jones can still play at a high level and there are many teams where he would be the No. 2 receiver if not their top target, including these three.

The New York Giants made the playoffs in head coach Brain Daboll’s first year at the helm. To avoid taking a step back in 2023, they’ll try to bring back Daniel Jones and running back Saquon Barkley this offseason. Once they lock up Barkley and Jones, they’ll need to revamp their receiving core.
Darius Slayton, the Giants’ leading receiver in 2022, is set to become a free agent. But even if he comes back, the general manager Joe Schoen will need to add another target to ensure Jones has enough weapons at his disposal. Jones would be the perfect fit for Big Blue. Not only can he play at a high level but can provide veteran leadership to a young group that wants to take a step forward in 2023.
