The Jacksonville Jaguars made sure tight end Evan Engram didn't go anywhere when they gave him a three-year deal worth $44 million in the offseason. They also gave Roy Robertson-Harris and DaVon Hamilton long-term deals, so it's clear the Jags are doing what they can to retain their own players. Outside linebacker Josh Allen should be next on their list.
Allen is one of the top pass rushers in the league and one of the best defenders on the Jacksonville roster. Re-signing him should be among the team's top priorities but it won't be cheap. Rashan Gary and Montez Sweat just inked multi-year deals that will pay them an average of $24 million or more per year.
Moreover, Andre Cisco, Tyson Campbell, and Walker Little will enter contract years in 2024. It would be a good idea to start extending them as soon as possible. The issue is that the Jaguars won't have enough cap to bring everyone back. For this reason, there's a chance these three prominent players won't return in 2024.
No. 3 Jacksonville Jaguars player who won't likely in 2024: Jamal Agnew, RS
Jamal Agnew signed a three-year contract worth $14.25 million with the Jags in 2021 and has gone on to fill a pivotal role on special teams. He's also made plays on offense when given the chance and stepped up during Zay Jones' absence this season. However, the Jags could be in a cap crunch next offseason, and there are several players who could handle return duties if he left.
Granted, none of the players on the roster have the same impact in the return game as Agnew but there are a handful of receivers ready to have a bigger role on offense. There's no doubt Agnew can impact the game with a huge return but he might be a luxury the Jags may not be able to afford.
