6. Allen Robinson, WR (2014-2017)

For a hot minute, it appeared as if wide receiver Allen Robinson was going to be a superstar in the league. A second-round pick in 2014, he had over 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns in his sophomore campaign. However, he wasn't able to sustain that level of success. He had a respectable 883 yards in 2016 and then had his fourth year wiped out by an ACL injury.

Robinson managed to make a comeback with the Chicago Bears, tallying 255 catches for 3,151 yards with 17 touchdowns from 2018-2021. However, he saw a steep dropoff in 2021 and was gone the following year. He's had stints with the Los Angeles Rams and Pittsburgh Steelers ever since but wasn't able to play like he did at the height of his career.

5. Tyler Shatley, OG, (2014-2023)

Offensive guard Tyler Shatley deserves recognition for being the second longest-tenured player in franchise history (Brad Meester sits at the top) and suiting up for more London games than any other player. That said, he didn't really see the field much early in his career and it wasn't until recently that he saw an uptick in playing time. It helped that he had the former Clemson Tiger had the versatility to play all three positions across the interior offensive line.

36 of Shatley's 51 starts came the past four years, and he was serviceable for the Jags but not much else. He got a two-year deal in 2022 because he filled in for A.J. Cann and Brandon Linder at right guard and center, respectively, but he was exposed when he pressed into a feature role. In particular, Shatley struggled last year and was benched when the coaching staff bumped left tackle Walker Little inside.

There's no denying Shatley was an important depth piece throughout his tenure with the Jaguars but there's a chance the 2023 season was his last in Jacksonville.
