It’s a critical year with a lot of different question marks for the Jags to begin to sort out in Late July.
Most eyes will be on free agent quarterback Nick Foles and the beginning of his leadership to invigorate Jacksonville’s offense. As we wrote earlier in the week, Foles has been very complimentary of the Jaguars best weapon, Leonard Fournette. And, the hope for Jaguars fans is that Fournette will return to the form of his rookie season and not, the injured disappointment the 2018 became.
Further, Jacksonville has a question mark at middle linebacker, at least for now, as Pro Bowler Telvin Smith has announced that he will not play this season. It is still unclear as to exactly what his motive is for staying away from the team in the NFL for this year? However, the belief is it is some kind of personal problem are bothering Smith and/or his family. We also make room for the possibility that Smith could change his mind, and join his teammates at some point after veterans report or along the process in training camp and the preseason.
As for the preseason schedule, as the Jags announced they will have joint practices with the Baltimore Ravens coming on August 5th and 6th before playing the Ravens in the opening preseason game of 2019 on Thursday night August 8th in Baltimore.
That mean checks bill will get an up-close look in the workouts and at least for the first quarter at Ravens Speedy former Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Lamar Jackson.
The Jaguars passed on opportunity two drafts ago to take Jackson at the end of the first round. The Ravens ended up making a trade back into the first round and grabbing former Louisville star quarterback. And, he came on as their starter in the second half of last season replacing Joe Flacco and led them to the AFC North title and the playoffs.
If you’re wondering, Jacksonville has frequently held combined practices with other teams. That includes a year ago when they traveled to Minnesota to work out with the Vikings before playing them in the preseason.
