This summer, the Jaguars were once again among the top spenders in free agency, adding players like as safety Darnell Savage, defensive lineman Arik Armstead, center Mitch Morse, and wide receiver Gabe Davis.

With its new players on both sides of the ball, Jacksonville is hoping to avoid a repeat of last season’s disastrous late-season collapse that saw them finish 1-5 and miss the playoffs.

Owner Shad Khan, though, is not interested in it as a long-term strategy for expanding the roster.

The Jaguars signed edge rusher Josh Allen (five years, $150M) and quarterback Trevor Lawrence (five years, $275M) to large long-term deals this offseason, which is a major reason why they will be much less active in free agency in the upcoming years.
Lawrence and Allen agree that Jacksonville can choose and develop talent; however, if the team doesn’t keep doing this, more disappointing seasons will follow.

This is not to suggest that the previous two seasons have been complete busts; in fact, they have been the team’s best two seasons since 2004–2005, with a 9–8 record in each.

But the benchmark has evolved. It all comes down to making it to the postseason each year and succeeding when it counts. The Jaguars will be able to accomplish that by selecting and developing further talents in the likes of Lawrence and Allen.
