The Jaguars traded Julius Thomas and only replaced him with Mychal Rivera, who likely will occupy a part-time role on passing downs. Lewis is optimistic he'll take on a bigger pass-catching role under Hackett, but there's little reason to believe the 33-year-old can regain fantasy relevance at this stage of his career, following four straight seasons with 25 or fewer catches. The Jaguars figure to distribute most of the offensive touches to rookie running back Leonard Fournette and their wideout trio of Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee. While seemingly healthy and poised to start, Lewis mostly figures to contribute as a run blocker.
Church reportedly sustained the back injury in the early goings of the Jaguars' offseason program, which is the issue that prevented him from taking part in OTAs and minicamp. However, his limitations were said to be precautionary and Church should be good to go for training camp.
Albert hasn't been present at OTAs due to a contract dispute. His participation in mandatory minicamp will reportedly be determined by the results of a physical he'll be subject to take upon arrival.
McNary spent the last four seasons with the Colts, playing in 49 games and recording 79 combined tackles. He posted a team-high nine special teams tackles in 2016, and should fill a similar special teams role with the Jaguars while providing depth for the team's linebacker corps.
Miller spent a majority of the 2016 season on IR after tearing his Achilles tendon during the Jaguars' sixth game of the year. At this point, he figures to be replaced by either Sheldon Day, Abry Jones or Louis Nix at defensive tackle.
Lee, Hurns and Allen Robinson were all part of the same 2014 rookie class, with the former actually selected first (No. 39 overall) among the trio, while Hurns came in as an undrafted free agent. Hurns got a four-year extension last offseason after thriving in his first two campaigns, only to fall flat during an injury-marred 2016 season in which Lee finally stayed healthy and emerged as a useful weapon. Hurns' contract might seem to give him an advantage in the position battle, but the Jags actually can release him after this season without significant cap ramifications. Meanwhile, Lee and Robinson are entering the final year of their rookie contracts, potentially leaving the team with three major decisions at the position next offseason. The battle between Lee and Hurns took on added significance when the Jags drafted Leonard Fournette and acquired two fullbacks in the offseason, strongly hinting at a desire to cut down on the use of three-wide formations. The Jags could rotate receivers in two-wide sets, and with no major pass-catching threat at tight end, the team may be able to keep three wideouts heavily involved without going pass-heavy.
A 2015 seventh-round pick, Koyack was efficient with his limited work last season, catching 19 of 24 targets for 161 yards and a touchdown. He should have a chance to compete with Marcedes Lewis and Mychal Rivera for the starting tight end job, potentially offering the best mix of receiving and blocking skills. Regardless of which player wins the job, the Jaguars seemingly plan to limit the involvement of their tight ends in the passing game, instead hoping to get the most out of rookie back Leonard Fournette and the wideout trio of Allen Robinson, Marqise Lee and Allen Hurns. The team is unlikely to make heavy use of two-TE formations after adding two fullbacks in the offseason.
Jones has been with the Jaguars for the first four years of his career and they've opted to reward him with an extension after recording 32 tackles during the 2016 campaign. He ended up starting nine of 15 games and was more then a serviceable run stopper, so look for Jones to continue to play a significant role in team's defensive line rotation moving forward. Barring any changes prior to training camp, look for Jones to open the preseason as one of the Jaguars' two starters at defensive tackle.
Day has been injured for the past few weeks, but could still make the final roster given he performs well throughout the rest of the preaseason and gets back to full health. He won't have much IDP value, as he's buried on the defensive line depth chart.
Dixon spent last season with the Saints and Cardinals but didn't see much time on the field. He'll look to catch on with Jacksonville in 2017.
Posluszny has been a stronghold for Jacksonville at middle linebacker the past six seasons but will now make the change as the team ushers in a new era on defense. "It will be a change, but that's what's going to be best for the team so we're going to give it a shot," the 32-year-old linebacker said. The shift means Posluszny isn't likely to be involved in nickel packages, which would significantly cut down his playing time. Last season, he registered 133 tackles, three pass deflections, 1.5 sacks, and one interception through 16 games.
Sample was injured during the preseason with what was believed to be just a stinger, but the issue appears to be more severe than originally expected as he's been placed on injured reserve. The 24-year-old safety will look to get back to full health before trying once again to make an NFL roster.
Grant's pick-six, a 39-yard return, was the first score of the game. Expected to compete with Senquez Golson and first round draft pick Artie Burns for defensive snaps, Grant may have an opportunity for increased playing time after Golson (foot) underwent Lisfranc surgery and is expected to miss four months.
The exact terms of the deal remain a bit unclear, but the sixth-year linebacker will provide the Jaguars with some depth at the middle linebacker position behind veteran Paul Posluszny. It's unlikely he will produce enough to be worthy of ownership in IDP leagues, with the majority of his snaps likely coming on special teams.
Nixon was waived by the Broncos yesterday. The former 7th-round pick spent much of last season on Denver's practice squad before being called up and tallying one tackle in two games. He'll look to make the active roster in Jacksonville as a depth corner and special teams player in 2017.
Brown (5-foot-11, 238 pounds) is a smaller linebacker but one who was very productive on tough Ohio defenses. He also proved a standout athlete at the Combine, logging a 4.65-second 40 along with a 37-inch vertical, 124-inch broad jump and 6.92-second three-cone drill. This is a player who might start someday, even if the Jaguars depth chart is a little too crowded in the short term.
Smoot (6-foot-3, 264 pounds) posted mediocre workout metrics at the Combine (4.77-second 40, 29.5-inch vertical), but he was a productive disruptor for Illinois the last two years, totaling 30 tackles for loss over that span. He'll likely serve as a rotational end.
Taken fifth overall in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Jaguars, Blackmon hasn't played in an NFL game since being suspended indefinitely back on Nov. 1, 2013 for a violation of the league's substance abuse program. Though he remains listed on Jacksonville's roster, the the 26-year-old wideout seems increasingly unlikely to play for the team again.
The 27-year-old defensive end bounced around between the Falcons and the Seahawks last season, and he hasn't appeared in more than four games in a single campaign since 2014. He adds some depth to the Jaguars' front, but the club has been so proactive in adding to its edge depth in recent years that it's difficult to imagine Goodman carving out a significant role next season.
In a disappointing season for the entire Jaguars offense, Myers remained dependable. Although his low field goal percentage of 79 percent may not affirm that notion, it should be noted that five of his seven misses came from beyond 50 yards. Under contract through next season, Myers will return in 2017 as a middling fantasy option at kicker.
Ramsey was originally expected to be sidelined for six weeks following the surgery, but he could be ready to return by the start of training camp given his ability to run just 12 days after the procedure. The second-year cornerback appears to be ahead of schedule in the rehab process, while he's eager to improve upon a successful rookie campaign in which he racked up 65 tackles, 14 passes defensed and two interceptions.
Signed to a four-year, $40 million contract last offseason, Hurns followed up his 2015 breakout with an absolute dud in 2016, catching only 35 of 76 targets for 477 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games. His struggles contributed to the emergence of Marqise Lee, who now looms as a serious threat to Hurns' status as the No. 2 receiver. It is possible there will be enough targets to keep all three of Hurns, Lee and No. 1 wideout Allen Robinson happy, as the Jaguars don't boast much in the way of pass-catching talent in the backfield or tight end corps. While unlikely to replicate his 2015 stat line of 64 catches for 1,031 yards and 10 touchdowns in 15 games, Hurns should at least re-emerge as a useful part of the offense and a viable deep threat, after producing a miserable 6.3 yards per target with a 46-percent catch rate last season.
Bennett's season was marred by injuries from the beginning. He dealt with a hip ailment in the preseason before suffering a calf injury that rendered him out for the entirety of Jacksonville's 2016 campaign. The injured reserve designation ensures that Bennett will stay with the Jaguars for at least one more year, as he will try to make an impact on a front seven that saw great contributions from defensive tackles Malik Jackson and Sen'Derrick Marks in 2016.
The Jaguars haven't utilized a fullback in two years but will break that trend by signing Bohanon, who was the lead blocker for Chris Ivory for three years with the Jets from 2013 to 2015. Coincidental or not, those three seasons were the most productive of Ivory's career.
Williams was a seventh-round pick in this year's draft, and the exact specifics regarding the injury that landed him on the PUP are currently unknown. Williams will have till the start of the regular season to be activated, where the team will then decide whether or not to keep him on the final roster.
Patmon has played in 24 career games across stints with the Cowboys and the Dolphins, recording 21 tackles and an interception. He's bounced around over the past year and will look to stick with the Jaguars as a depth corner and special teams player in 2017.
Grant served as the primary running back in the season finale with Chris Ivory (hamstring) and T.J. Yeldon (ankle) both held out. The second-year man out of Auburn took full advantage of the opportunity, topping 100 yards for the first time in his career. Grant was averaging just 3.0 yards per carry heading into this one, but raised that mark all the way to 5.1 thanks in large part to a 57-yard touchdown run. He finishes the season with 164 yards and a touchdown on 32 rushing attempts, as well as four catches for 35 yards and another touchdown.
Charles figures to provide depth along the defensive line for the Jaguars, but has never contributed enough to be worthy of IDP fantasy consideration.
Robinson spent last season, the final year of his rookie contract, serving as Jacksonville's No. 3 running back, totaling only 41 carries for 144 yards (3.5 per carry) in 13 games. He doesn't seem to have drawn much interest in free agency, and his participation in the upcoming rookie camp suggests he'll need to fight to stay in the league for another season. The former college quarterback hasn't done much since 2014, when he started nine games and took 135 carries for 582 yards (4.3 YPC) and four touchdowns. He's missed exactly three games in each of the last three seasons.
Yeldon's return to full health will be especially important this offseason after the team selected Leonard Fournette in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, creating even more competition alongside Chris Ivory. Yeldon, who missed the 2016 regular-season finale due to an ankle injury, ran for just 465 yards on 130 carries last year but proved his worth as a pass catcher with 50 receptions for 312 yards.
McCray joins the Jaguars coming off a season in which he had just 16 tackles in 13 games played. He'll likely be a backup linebacker with the team and while he isn't expected to have a prominent role in the defense, he should provide special teams value.
Westbrook missed the final eight days of OTAs in late May and early June due to an undisclosed injury. While it still isn't clear what the Oklahoma product is tending to, his participation in mandatory minicamp this week -- albeit in a limited fashion -- suggests the rookie is nearing a return to full strength and could be ready for the start of training camp in late July.
Woodard had torn an Achilles' tendon during the team's offseason program and was never expected to be ready for the regular season opener. Now, he's officially ineligible to play until Week 7. However, it's unclear what sort of role he'll serve when healthy.
While Smith can still add some polish to his game, he's been among the Jaguars' most reliable defenders over the past two seasons. The Florida State product notched 104 combined tackles as a rookie and followed up with 128 tackles in 14 games last season. The Jaguars added high-upside rookie Myles Jack in the second round of the draft, and while Jack is expected to gradually take on a larger workload as the season progresses, his development isn't expected to result in significantly fewer snaps for Smith. In Week 1 against the Packers, Smith will be tasked with helping slow down Eddie Lacy, and he'll be tested in coverage against tight end Jared Cook.
Benn was only targeted 10 times in 2016, catching five passes for a total of 116 yards and one touchdown. He'll look to secure a role as a depth receiver and special teams player once again in 2017.
Richardson has bounced around plenty during his small NFL tenure so he could find a new home relatively soon depending on fit. His best season came back in 2012 when he rushed for 475 yards for the Rams.
Bouye was considered one of the highest-priority cornerbacks in free agency and was certainly paid like it. He had 63 tackles and 16 passes defenses, including an interception, in 15 games in 2016. He'll likely start across from Jalen Ramsey for the Jaguars in 2017.
Fournette was drafted No. 4 overall due to his rare combination of size, speed, power and running instincts, with anything he can contribute as a receiver likely to be viewed as a bonus. It seems he's been a pleasant surprise in that regard during rookie minicamp and OTAs, flashing the potential to develop into a pass-catching threat out of the backfield. While he only had 41 receptions in 32 college games, Fournette was predictably dangerous once he had the ball in his hands, impressively producing 12.8 yards per catch. T.J. Yeldon is still the clear favorite to handle passing downs early in the season, but Fournette could eventually develop into one of the league's few true three-down workhorses. As is, Fournette figures to at least dominate early-down carries and goal-line work, relegating Yeldon and Chris Ivory to bit roles.
Fowler was released shortly thereafter, but the 2015 first-rounder could still face further discipline as additional details likely await. The Jaguars' starting defensive end notched 32 tackles and four sacks in 16 games last season, and the team is scheduled to begin training camp next week.
Pinkard is a second-year receiver out of Old Dominion who's yet to appear in an NFL game. He's far from guaranteed a spot on the Week 1 roster and will thus need to fight for a depth receiver job or a role on special teams this summer.
Sterling didn't practice all week and his inactive status comes as no surprise. Ben Koyack will see a majority of snaps at tight end with Sterling out.
Campbell, a two-time Pro Bowler, would combine with Michael Bennett and Malik Jackson to form a daunting defensive line in Jacksonville. However, considering Campbell operated in a 3-4 defense throughout his tenure in Arizona, it isn't clear how he'd fit in defensive coordinator Todd Wash's 4-3 system.
Colvin, who landed on injured reserve after Week 15 due to an ankle injury, was seen wearing a walking boot during OTAs. However, it doesn't appear as if he'll be out of commission much longer, as Colvin is expected to be ready in time for training camp next month.
Robinson fell flat last season along with the rest of the young Jacksonville offense, with his receiving yards (1,400 to 883), touchdowns (14 to six) and yards per receptions (17.5 to 12.1) all falling off a cliff from his breakout 2015 campaign. Now entering the final year of his rookie contract, the 2014 second-round selection (No. 61 overall) carries a 2017 base salary under $1 million. An extension would give him long-term financial security, but the Jaguars probably aren't willing to pay him as an elite No. 1 receiver in the wake of such a disappointing season. If he waits things out and bounces back in 2017, the young wideout would be in a position next offseason to demand a contract that makes him one of the highest-paid receivers in the NFL. Also working in his favor, Robinson is one of the youngest players from the 2014 draft class, set to turn 24 just a couple of weeks before Week 1.
Signed to a five-year, $32 million contract last offseason, Ivory was a major disappointment his first season in Jacksonville, taking 117 carries for 439 yards (3.8 average) and three touchdowns, with 20 catches for 186 yards on 28 targets while playing only 11 games. With Fournette presumably stepping in as the early-down workhorse and Yeldon likely handling passing downs, Ivory may be left without a clear role in the Jaguars offense. His contract could keep him around for another season, but there isn't much cause for optimism regarding his future in Jacksonville.
Jackson, who signed a six-year deal with the Jaguars this offseason worth up to $85.5 million, said he spoke with coaches during OTA's and took their advice to heart. "The two things they talked to me about before we left for our break was losing weight and my cardio," Jackson said. "Coach Wash pulled me aside and said that's what I needed to work on." The 26-year-old played at around 308 pounds in 2015, when he recorded 5.0 sacks and 45 combined tackles, helping to lead the Broncos to a Super Bowl victory. As the headliner of a seven-man Jags free agent class, expectations will be high for Jackson, but head coach Gus Bradley is pleased with what he's seen thus far. "He has done a good job," Bradley said Friday. "I'll tell you what, he does a good job working on the edge. You know when you see him on a guard. Good technique and conditioning, he plays on the edge a little bit more and he shows some rushing."
While the Jags haven't released an official depth chart, Rivera will likely have the advantage over veteran Marcedes Lewis, who's more effective as a run-blocker at this point in his career. With Julius Thomas out of the mix, Rivera will have an opportunity to bounce back after a pair of disappointing seasons in Oakland that came on the heels of a breakout year in 2014. Last season, the 26-year-old Rivera caught a career-low 18 passes for 192 yards and one touchdown, as rookie Clive Walford emerged as Derek Carr's favored tight end target.
Thompson, who converted from cornerback to free safety last offseason, finished the 2016 season with five tackles on defense and six on special teams across 15 game appearances. He'll likely enter the 2017 campaign in a backup role behind starter Tashaun Gipson.
The 2015 fifth-round selection has played in 17 games through two seasons, catching 24 of 43 targets for a measly 125 yards (5.2 YPR) and a a pair of touchdowns. Coming off a season-ending injury and competing for a job in a deep receiving corps, Greene may need to earn his roster spot as a return specialist.
The Jaguars have a bit of a logjam, with Jack and Posluszny joined by standout weakside 'backer Telvin Smith, who has been a consistent three-down force since entering the league in 2014. As expected, the team will shift Posluszny to the strong side and take him off the field on most passing downs, even though he had 265 tackles in 30 games (8.8 per game) over the past two seasons. The Jags hope Jack will provide a major upgrade in pass coverage, but even if he doesn't quite meet expectations, last year's No. 36 overall draft pick finds himself in a role that's highly conducive to IDP production. It is possible Jack could lose the job if he struggles for a prolonged period, as the 32-year-old Posluszny has served as Jacksonville's every-down middle linebacker and defensive play caller since 2011, with his veteran leadership helping to compensate for declining range.
Walters, who was placed on IR last week due to a foot injury, was expected to compete for the Jaguars' punt return duties if healthy. The 29-year-old has spent time with the Chargers, Seahawks, and Jaguars throughout his career, but he'll look to catch on elsewhere upon his eventual return to full health.
Ngakoue's ankle injury which he suffered during Sunday's loss to the Broncos doesn't appear to be serious, so he figures to be available in Week 14 against the Vikings.
Bortles will now be under contract with the Jaguars through the 2018 season, when he'll be owed roughly $19 million. That money is only guaranteed for an injury, however, so Jacksonville could release Bortles after this season without leaving any dead money against its salary cap. The third overall pick in 2014, Bortles has thrown 69 touchdowns and 51 interceptions thus far and sports an 11-34 record as a starter. Despite his inconsistencies, the Jags didn't use a single draft pick on a quarterback, thus putting their faith in Bortles ahead of this season.
Marks' release will clear $4.475 million in cap space for the Jaguars as they get set to sign big-time free agents Calais Campbell and A.J. Bouye. Campbell will effectively replace Marks along the Jaguars defensive line. During his four years in Jacksonville, Marks recorded 16 sacks and two forced fumbles.
Myrick made the most of his Combine invite, running a blazing 4.28-second 40 to get his draft stock trending in the right direction. His tape and diminutive size (5-10, 200) point to Myrick being a slot corner at the next level, but his speed and elusiveness in the return game should help him crack the roster as a special teamer at the very least.
Gipson's injury doesn't appear to be of much concern, but the Jaguars' starting free safety has been working off to the side during minicamp. It doesn't seem likely that his current issue would linger into training camp.
The four-year vet has served primarily as a special teams player during his short NFL career. With the Jaguars looking to add some depth at the linebacker position, Porter became expendable.
Odrick was released by the Jaguars in February after completing just two seasons of a five-year, $42.5 million contract -- a deal that was widely viewed as an overpay at the time. Coming off a season in which he was limited to one sack and 12 tackles in six games while dealing with shoulder, triceps, quad and ankle injuries, the 29-year-old defensive tackle will have to settle for a much smaller contract in his second crack at free agency. He did have 4.5 or more sacks in four of five seasons from 2011 to 2015 while with the Dolphins, playing all 16 games in each of those years. Odrick would make sense as a discount/fallback option for a Giants defense that recently lost DT Jonathan Hankins to the Colts. Seattle could also use interior line help, whereas Philadelphia seems to have addressed that area by trading for Timmy Jernigan to join Fletcher Cox. Odrick should have time to work his way back to full strength before training camp.
Howard appeared in 15 games for the Browns last season as an undrafted rookie out of Miami and racked up 20 tackles and one pass defensed along the way. He will try to crack the Jaguars' 53-man roster as a depth option in the secondary and a possible kickoff return specialist as well.
