1. Cam Robinson, left tackle

Left tackle Cam Robinson is one of the longest-tenured players on the Jaguars' roster. While NFL careers have a short span and it's the norm to see teams experience turnover year in and year out, it's a bit surprising to see Robinson, along with Dawuane Smoot and Tyler Shatley, last as long as he has. And that reflects well on him.

Robinson outlasted a pair of head coaches (Doug Marrone and Urban Meyer) and the man who drafted him (Dave Caldwell). However, his tenure in Jacksonville could come to an end in 2024. He's set to have a massive cap hit of $21.1 million next season but they could free up $17.2 million with just $3.8 million in dead money if they move on from him. Simply, the team's brass might not want to pass on the chance to get that much breathing room, even though the team looked completely different when the Alabama product was on the field last year.

After the season ended, Robinson made it clear that he would love to stay in Jacksonville, and the Jaguars would most definitely benefit from keeping him around. While he's not a Pro Bowl talent, his mean streak would be sorely missed. On the other hand, the Jags have options at the position. Walker Little, a second-round pick in 2021, has played well when called upon. He could be the long-term answer at the position.

Also, Anton Harrison, who moved to the right side as a rookie, could play left tackle — his natural position — again. When you consider that the Jaguars have too many holes to plug in the offseason, releasing (or trading Robinson) may be the best course of action.
