Despite a 5-11 season in 2015, there is a great deal of hype surrounding the 2016 Jacksonville Jaguars. Their offseason was indeed a busy one, spending over $200 million during the free agency period alone. Their fans and Jacksonville Jaguars ticket holders are hoping this is the year it translates to post season glory. Jacksonville’s offense has been on the rise and should continue to succeed with another year of chemistry between quarterback Blake Bortles and his talented receiving corps which is comprised of Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and tight end Julius Thomas. To complement running back TJ Yeldon in the backfield, the Jaguars signed former Jets back Chris Ivory to a five-year deal. They also beefed up the line with the acquisition of free agents Mackenzy Bernadeau and Patrick Omameh. Heading into the offseason, the Jags defense was in need of some repair and Jacksonville went to work to make the necessary improvements. They drafted perhaps the best defensive playmaker on the board at fifth overall, Florida State’s Jalen Ramsey. This talented cornerback is a perfect fit for Gus Bradley’s system as he is super speedy with an incredible
skill set. In the second round, they got a steal in UCLA’s linebacker Myles Jack who has some injury concerns, however is extremely versatile and can stop the run and pass. Perhaps the Jaguars best offseason move was the signing of former Denver Bronco Malik Jackson, whose $85.5 million contract with $42 million guaranteed makes him the fourth highest paid defensive lineman in the league. He had an incredible season in 2015 for the Super Bowl Champions and should make an immediate impact on the Jags defense this season.
Jacksonville fans have been waiting patiently for this team to turn the corner and finally be legitimate contenders. This year, they have all the moving parts, it is just the matter of putting them all together to translate to victories. 2016 should be an exciting one so be sure to secure your Jacksonville Jaguars tickets today to not miss out on all the fun.
