Give credit to the Jaguars. Coming off of a tremendous turnaround season that was fueled in part by free agent acquisitions last March, they have decided to follow the same game plan this go around in 2018.
While last year was defensive players Calais Campbell and AJ Bouye, this time surrounding QB Blake Bortles with new weapons and upgrades is obviously, part of their plan.
This after Thursday, when the Jaguars grabbed wide receiver Donte Moncrief, a former third round pick of the Colts, and then also, New York Jets tight end and former Buccaneers second round pick, Austin Seferian-Jenkins.
Moncrief averaged 12.1 yards per catch in his four seasons in Indy with 18 career TD’s. He was pumped to join the Jaguars Thursday aftrernoon:

Moncrief is a deep threat to complement Marqise Lee, who the team decided to bring back earlier this week with a four-year deal.
Meanwhile Seferian-Jenkins seemingly got his act together in the last year-and-a-half in New York after the Buccaneers released him early in the 2016 Season due to off-the-field issues with partying and a DUI.
He caught 50 balls for a 7.1 yard average and three TD’s for the Jets last season. ASJ was cryptically referring to working on a deal with the Jags to come back to Florida last night when he tweeted:
I’m really thankful to be here in this moment! Just wanna thank god! And the people that watch over me !! Thank you!

Clearly Seferian-Jenkins will help the pass game at the tight end position, as Marcedes Lewis, while a veteran and locker room leader is nearing the end of his career.
The Jaguars also earlier in the day announced they’re bringing in former Redskins tight end Niles Paul, as well, on a two-year deal.
When you factor in the Jacksonville also spent a truckload of money on offensive guard Andrew Norwell of the Panthers, it’s obvious the VP of football Tom Coughlin and GM Dave Caldwell don’t simply want to rely on the draft and the talent on the roster alone.
They were aggressive and Jacksonville fans have to be loving that part
