Jaguars general manager David Caldwell said Step 1 is complete.
In his and coach Gus Bradley's first season, they established a foundation, figured out the team's strength and weaknesses, set a standard of acceptability, and figured out how the team stacked up to the rest of the NFL.
Now it's on to Step 2: adding more pieces to the roster and improving the talent level, writes the Florida Times-Union's Ryan O'Halloran.
"Through the draft and through moderate free-agent signings, we need to improve the upper part of the roster," Bradley said.
Here are some additional pieces of Jaguars content in our daily Reading the Coverage feature:
The T-U's Hays Carlyon says he expects the pass defense to be much better in 2014, mainly because the Jaguars aren't facing as many elite quarterbacks as they did this season.
As expected, Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater announced that he was entering the NFL draft. ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. writes that there may no quarterback in the draft as ready to succeed early as Bridgewater.
South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney also said he's entering the draft.
