No. 2 Jaguars player who remains unsigned: Josh Lambo, K

The 2017 season was one Jaguars fans hold dear and rightfully so. Besides the most remarkable one in the ten years prior 2022, they came one bad call away from reaching the Super Bowl. Moreover, they gain notoriety for winning games on the strength of a stout defense, something that isn't nearly as common as it was 30 years ago.

On top of that, the offense was also good. Sure, they benefited from having favorable field position thanks to their defensive counterpart but they usually took advantage of the opportunities they were given and ranked fifth in points scored in the league that year. Another player that was integral to the team's success in 2017 is kicker Josh Lambo, who came clutch when called upon.

Lambo, who went undrafted in 2015, spent two seasons with the Los Angeles before joining the Jags and quickly becoming a fan favorite. For a brief period of time, he was one of their most efficient players, completing 94.7 percent of his kicks from 2017 to 2019. His efforts helped him earn a Second-Team All-Pro designation in 2019 but that would be his last productive season.

Injuries limited Lambo to only two games in 2020 and the Jags would pull the plug on him after missing several attempts the following year. To make matters worse, he became the subject of an infamous incident in which then-head coach Urban Meyer allegedly kicked him to "motivate him".

Once Lambo spoke about it publicly, Meyer was given the boot. Although there are several many reasons the Jags cut ties with the embattled head coach, kicking Lambo was likely one.

After getting released by the Jags, Lambo briefly signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers but didn't make any attempts. He then latched onto the Tennessee Titans but he only spent a few weeks on their roster before being cut. At this point, it's fair to wonder if Lambo will ever get another chance.
