2. The Jaguars zeroed in on Chad Hall to replace Chris Hall

Bringing in Chad Hall to replace wide receivers coach Chris Jackson was one of the biggest changes they made to their coaching staff in the offseason. Hall's background as a player and his work with the Buffalo Bills from 2017-2022 made him an enticing hire, and Press Taylor told the media Sunday he was their first choice for the job.

"I've known a lot about Chad, we have a lot of mutual friends, "Taylor said. "People that thought very highly of him, honestly. He was really the only person we went after when CJ took an opportunity to go to Texas. Chad was our first home, we extended an offer on it, wanted to see where that went, and gave a lot of time with it."

"Because everything we knew from him, from Doug's experience with him, mutual contacts with him, Heat's relationship with him. We felt like he'd be a fit with us, with our room, with our staff. So he was really the only one after, we're excited with what he's done so far," Taylor said.

As Taylor noted, special teams coordinator Heath Farwell worked with Hall in Buffalo and he talked about their relationship when he met with the local media on Day 8 of Jaguars training camp.

Christian Kirk and Zay Jones put up career numbers under the tutelage of Chris Jackson last year, so finding someone who could get the most out of them (and Calvin Ridley) was key. It looks like the Jags got the right person in Hall, who so far has gotten rave reviews from fellow coaches and players.
