One player I think will be outgoing, one player I think should be incoming, for the Jacksonville Jaguars once free agency opens Tuesday afternoon.
I’m steering clear of the huge guys on the incoming category, as it’s easy to say a team should covet the best/most expensive player at a position of need.
Outgoing: Jeremy Mincey, defensive end. I think he’s a good player and I think the Jaguars would like to keep him. But after Mario Williams, who will command a fortune, and Dwight Freeney, who could be released if he’s not traded, and John Abraham, Mincey’s the best end who will hit the market. I think someone will offer him a contract that’s on the wrong side of what the Jaguars deem him to be worth.
Incoming: Jason Campbell, quarterback. Sure, they need a defensive end and a couple of receivers, and I am hopeful they will shop in those departments. But they also need a quality backup to Blaine Gabbert who’s helpful to him but also a better fallback plan than Luke McCown was. And there are slim pickings at quarterback, so they should be aggressive with Campbell.
