Jaguars free agents: Cameron Bradfield
By Michael DiRocco
Position: Offensive tackle
Summary: He played in a career-high 15 games and started 11 games at left tackle. He became the permanent starter after Luke Joeckel suffered a fractured ankle in Week 5 against St. Louis.
Why keep him: He’s an experienced player (38 games, 25 starts) who can play both right and left tackle so he provides good depth. Plus, he turns 27 in September.
Why let him go: Joeckel and Austin Pasztor project to be the starting tackles and the team may opt to find a younger, cheaper alternative to Bradfield. He has obviously proved he can start in the league and another team may give him a much better offer than the Jaguars are willing to match.
Best guess: He re-signs and gives the Jaguars quality depth.
