Jacksonville Jaguars 2019 NFL outlook: Schedule, players to watch & more


The Jacksonville Jaguars made one of the more splashy moves of the offseason signing quarterback Nick Foles to a contract and getting rid of Blake Bortles after five seasons at the helm.

Foles will get another chance to be a full-time starter as the Jaguars’ quarterback. The team hopes Foles’ magic will help propel them to their second playoff appearance in three seasons.

Jacksonville finished with just five wins last season but the addition of Foles and a healthy Leonard Fournette would give them a chance to do better and at least be competitive during the season.

One of the bigger losses for the Jaguars in the offseason was the announcement made by Telvin Smith that he was going to take the season off. Smith made the decision in May to take 2019 off to get “my world in order.” He made the Pro Bowl for Jacksonville during the 2017 season.

There will be more pressure on rookie Quincy Williams and Leon Jacobs to step up their game defensively during the season.
