The Jacksonville Jaguars are coming off arguably their most successful season in recent years, and even though they were relatively quiet in free agency, they're still the team to beat in the AFC South in 2023. Of course, their division foes are doing their best to keep up and they've tried to get better in an effort to dethrone them.

However, Jaguars fans couldn't contain their laughter after watching other AFC South clubs make these questionable signings in free agency.

Titans signing that left Jacksonville Jaguars fans laughing: Andre Dillard, LT

The Tennessee Titans are undergoing a soft rebuild this offseason and general manager Ran Carthon deserves credit for doing a solid job even though he wasn't dealt a particularly great hand. Due to cap constraints, the Titans had to part ways with linebacker David Long Jr. and guard Nate Davis. However, they also addressed positions of need with the signings of cornerback Sean Murphy-Buting and Arden "I built the city of Jacksonville with my bare hands" Key.

On the other hand, Tennessee raised eyebrows when they gave left tackle Andre Dillard a three-year deal worth $29 million in free agency. Although that's far from a top-market contract, the former Washington State Cougar has not proven yet that he's capable of being a dependable starter.

A first-round pick by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2019, Dillard lost his job to former seventh-round pick Jordan Mailata and struggled with the transition to right tackle, so it's fair to wonder how he'll fare in Tennessee.

Maybe Dillard will put it all together for the Titans but his career path doesn't precisely inspire confidence.
