The Jacksonville Jaguars have spared no expense to lock up core players. This offseason alone, they gave massive contracts to Trevor Lawrence and outside linebacker Josh Allen. On top of that, they re-signed left guard Ezra Cleveland and gave linebacker Foyesade Oluokun a three-year extension. That said, other players remain in line to get paid.

As of this writing, Jacksonville has around $28 million in cap space, so they could make a couple of moves before the regular season starts. On the other hand, they cannot just hand out new contracts for the sake of it. The team's brass could pay any of the following three players but each one of them has to prove their worth in 2024.

Jaguars CB Tyson Campbell is facing a fight to get a new deal win 2024

Cornerback Tyson Campbell has experienced plenty of ups and downs throughout his career but has certainly done enough to earn consideration for a contract extension. Back in 2021, the Jags raised a few eyebrows when they drafted him coming out of Georgia.

After all, the Jags had just signed Shaquil Griffin and brought back Sidney Jones. C.J. Henderson, the ninth overall pick the year prior, was also in the mix, so drafting Campbell felt unnecessary. However, he quickly proved Jacksonville made the right call.

Although Campbell struggled early as a rookie, he fared much better once he replaced Henderson in the boundaries. He got better as the season progressed and finished 2021 with a team-best two interceptions. The former Georgia Bulldog was able to build off of his success and had an even better sophomore campaign.

By the end of 2022, Campbell had joined the conversation about the top cornerbacks in the NFL. He looked like a star on the rise ahead of the 2023 season. Unfortunately, injuries held him back for most of the year. The Florida native is now looking to bounce back. Working in his favor is that he's at full strength, and has made a strong impression on the new coaching staff.

On the other hand, the Jaguars are making a switch to a press-heavy scheme under defensive coordinator Ryan Nielsen. Campbell, who may be better suited to play man coverage, will need to prove that he can thrive in a new system.
