RTC: OL rebuild begins
By Michael DiRocco
The Jaguars made three moves on the offensive line this week, cutting Uche Nwaneri and signing Cameron Bradfield and Sam Young. That's just the start of the rebuild, writes the Florida Times-Union's Ryan O'Halloran.
When free agency begins next week, the Jaguars will be trying to find a center and two guards to fill the starting spots along the interior of the offensive line. There are plenty of players available, with eight centers and 15 guards under 30 years of age who played at least 100 snaps last season.
The Jaguars may opt to sign two guards and draft a center or give one of several players already on the roster a chance to win the job. Or they may sign a center and one guard and draft at least one interior offensive lineman.
