1. Andre Cisco can return punts of the Jaguars if called upon

The Jaguars have an electrifying returner in Jamal Agnew but they need to have a contingency plan in place in case he misses time next season. The good news is that they didn't have to look for long. In fact, the answer literally showed up at Heath Farwell's office to volunteer.

Farwell told the media that third-year safety Andre Cisco came into his office and asked him to return punts, he gave him a shot and he hasn't disappointed.

"He's been great," Farwell said. "So the offseason, he came to me and said, 'coach, I'd love to be a returner, get back there with those guys.' No problem, did it, he's been great. He's started out, learning the position. And if you guys have watched some of the training camp practice, he's been great. He catches them clean, he's smooth, he's reliable, he's smart, he's tough, he's a guy that can compete for that emergency guy".

"We love him, he's a great teammates, cares, he wants to win. How can I help? He knows Jamal is there but he also knows, 'hey, I can help the team, there's something I can do,' and he's done a great job. He's learning every day. It's been really cool to work with him with it," Farwell said.

Ideally, Cisco will never have to handle return duties because that will most likely mean that Agnew isn't available. However, teams always have be ready in case injuries strike and the Jags seem to have a good contingency plan in Andre Cisco.
