The Jacksonville Jaguars addressed several needs in free agency. That sounds great at first but not so much once you take into account that they weren't the only team in the division to load up on talent.

The Houston Texans spared no expenses to sign players such as defensive end Danielle Hunter while the Tennessee Titans made upgrades across the roster and even traded for cornerback L'Jarious Sneed to speed up their rebuild. The Indianapolis Colts, for their part, weren't nearly as active but they did a good job of retaining their own players.

That said, all AFC South teams made at least a puzzling move in free agency, and Jaguars fans should most definitely laugh at these three.

3. Raekwon Davis, defensive tackle

The Indianapolis Colts got off to a slow start to free agency despite the fact that they were among the top 10 teams in the league in terms of cap space. Granted, they re-signed wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr., defensive tackle Grover Stewart, and cornerback Kenny Moore II. On top of that, they were reportedly making a push to trade for L'Jarious Sneed but ultimately stayed put.

Indy did make a few moves but none of them were of the Blockbuster variety. They signed Joe Flacco to backup Anthony Richardson and later gave defensive tackle Raekwon Davis a two-year deal worth $13 million. While bringing in a vested veteran like Flacco made sense, paying Davis an annual salary of $6.5 million is puzzling.

After all, the Colts didn't break the bank to ink Davis but he didn't do enough during his fourth-year stint with the Miami Dolphins to make you think he'll make an impact in Indianapolis. A 3-4 defensive tackle, he didn't rack up big stats in Miami. Under defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, he'll need to make the transition to a 4-3 system.

Based on the contract they gave him, the Colts are projecting Davis to show out but there's no guarantee he will. For the time being, his signing doesn't look great.
