No. 2 player definitely entering his last year with the Jaguars: Cam Robinson, LT

Things can change in the blink of an eye in the NFL. One day you are among the top 20 players at your position and suddenly you run the risk of losing your job because of injuries or a mistake. That's the situation left tackle Cam Robinson finds himself in ahead of the 2023 season.

Robinson entered the 2021 season having to prove himself and he passed the test with flying colors. He signed a three-year deal worth offseason$54 million last offseason and seemed to have solidified his spot as a mainstay of the Jaguars' offensive line. However, he then suffered a knee injury last year that forced him to miss three contests.

Although the Alabama product is set to be ready for training camp, he violated the league's PED policy and will serve a multi-game suspension to start the 2023 season. The exact timeline of the events is unknown and it might not be made public but it's a given that Walker Little will take his place at left tackle and might not give it back if he fares well.

One thing working against Robinson is that he's slated to count $22.75 million against the cap in 2024 but releasing him would free up $17.5 million in space with $5 million in cap money. While he's been a fine player, the Jags could decide to move on from him next year and allocate the savings next offseason to bring back someone like outside linebacker Josh Allen or wide receiver Calvin Ridley.
