Jaguars offense after free agency part II

Running backs (3) Travis Etienne, D'Ernest Johnson, Tank Bigsby

Travis Etienne is entering his fourth season in Jacksonville. Behind an improved offensive line, he should be way more productive than he was in 2023. D'Ernest Johnson, who returned on a one-year deal, will be RB2 behind Etienne during the offseason. However, Tank Bigsby will be given a chance to move ahead of him on the depth chart.

Bigsby is coming off an underwhelming rookie season but the Jaguars brass hasn't given up on him. They could add a running back on Day 3 in the draft to add competition but they may ultimately roll with Etienne, Bigsby, and Johnson in 2024.

Wide receivers (6) Gabe Davis, Zay Jones, Christian Kirk, Tim Jones, Devin Duvernay, Parker Washington

The Jags made a few changes to the wide receiver corps this offseason. Out are Calvin Ridley and Jamal Agnew, and in are Gabe Davis and Devin Duvernay. They could still add a receiver in Rounds 1 or 2 of the draft to replace Ridley. If they do, Jones could be on his way out.

Duvernay will be the team's top returner but could also see considerable playing time on offense. Also, Parker Washington should get an increased role in Year 2.

Offensive line (9) Cam Robinson, Ezra Cleveland, Anton Harrison, Walker Little, Mitch Morse, Luke Fortner, Brandon Scherff, Blake Hance, Cooper Hodges

One of the Jaguars' biggest acquisitions in free agency was veteran Mitch Morse, who'll compete with incumbent Luke Fortner for the starting job at center. Morse should be able to come on top. Also, the front office re-signed Ezra Cleveland to provide stability at left guard after arriving via trade last year.

On a related note, Jacksonville re-signed Blake Hance and restructured Brandon Scherff's contract to get a bit of cap relief. Tyler Shatley became a free agent and hasn't been re-signed. If he doesn't return, Cooper Hodges could compete for the top backup job inside.

Cam Robinson was seen as a potential cap casualty before free agency but he remains on the roster as of this writing. Barring any changes, he'll be the starting left tackle in Week 1, leaving Walker Little as the swing tackle.
