The Jacksonville Jaguars were tied for the worst team in the NFL last season, which means they needed a major overhaul this summer after years of decline. Despite their draft picks and free agency signings so far, they’re not done with a number of positions, including offensive tackle, with Eric Winston and Winston Justice waiting for a call.
The Jags used their number 2 draft pick on Luke Joeckel of Texas A&M to become the centerpiece of their offensive line in the future, and got Johnathan Cyprien, a Safety out of FIU as their number two pick. They’ve also added nine players since March through free agency, including wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi and cornerback Marcus Trufant.
But they’re still looking for another offensive tackle, especially looking at Eric Winston and Winston Justice, two players who have been mentioned as candidates for a number of teams so far, but haven’t been able to agree on anything, although both of them, each one in his separate time, seemed to be on his way to joining the Dallas Cowboys.
Another interesting addition for the Jags might be bringing back Daryl Smith, who has played for the team his entire career (since 2004), playing as an outside linebacker in the 4-3 system. Smith hasn’t been able to find work with anyone else, partially hoping he’d get a call back from the Jaguars, even if its for reduced money.
Another position the Jags are still looking to fill is at Tight End. While there isn’t anyone who can bring them too much to the table, veterans like Kellen Winslow, Dallas Clark, Todd Heap and Visanthe Shiancoe, who didn’t even play for anyone last season, are still available, and looking for a team in 2013.
