The Jaguars didn’t have the season they wanted in 2018, however, there were a lot of injuries and the team lost each other in the locker room. I am pretty confident this season with the addition of Nick Foles that there will be added leadership on the offensive side of the ball and maybe for the whole team.

The Jaguars were not that same team last season that went to the AFC Championship in the 2017 season, but apart of that was also on head coach Doug Marrone as in terms of the players not bonding as a football team. The Jaguars do not have a lot of games that sound like an easy win, but we will have to find out.

Week 3: Titans at Jaguars

The Jaguars have been swept by Tennessee for the past two seasons, but this is always a winnable game. The Jaguars usually pull this one out when the game is in Jacksonville whenever the two teams split the series, and they need to forget about that long Derrick Henry touchdown run in Nashville last season.

Week 4: Jaguars at Broncos

The Jaguars will go out west to Mile High, a place they have not won at since 2008. The Broncos do have a new coaching staff along with QB Joe Flacco, but I still think that the Jaguars can definitely pull this one out. I should point out that this game is out west and it is a different atmosphere, but I still think that it is extremely winnable due to the Broncos being very mediocre since losing Peyton Manning.

Week 7: Jaguars at Bengals

The Jaguars will travel up to Cincinnati to take on Andy Dalton and AJ Green, but we all remember what happened between Jalen Ramsey and AJ Green two years ago. The Bengals have a new head coach also in Zach Taylor and the Jaguars have not won in Cincinnati since 2002, but they are a better team than the Bengals.

Week 8: Jets at Jaguars

Sam Darnold will definitely be a better quarterback this season than last year and the Jets hired one of the best quarterback coaches in Adam Gase as head coach. The Jags, however, had little trouble with the Jets at home last season and I definitely think this game can still be a one-sided affair.

Week 12: Jaguars at Titans

The Jaguars have not swept the Titans since 2005, however, I still always have that childlike faith that the Jaguars can beat the Titans in Nashville. While Marcus Mariota is good when healthy, he has rarely been healthy during his career. The Jaguars will have to find an answer for Derrick Henry if they want to sweep the Titans this year.

Week 13 Buccaneers at Jaguars

The Sunshine Showdown in Jacksonville is definitely the most winnable game on the schedule. While the Bucs have a new and really accomplished coaching staff including HC Bruce Ariens, Jameis Winston has been far from consistent.

Week 16 Jaguars at Falcons

The Jaguars have not won in Atlanta since 1999 and the Falcons are very good in the dome. I still think this is a winnable game due to both teams being evenly matched on both sides of the ball and the fact that they both struggled on the offensive side of the ball last season. Can the Jaguars hold up on offense though?

The Jacksonville Jaguars have apparently fined LB Telvin Smith for missing three days of mandatory minicamp. This amount, according to Telvin Smith on Instagram, was for a total of $88,650. Telvin Smith decided to leave the game of football for a year last month and has not shown up to any team activities since the season ended in January.

Smith stated in his Instagram post “Oh y’all  thght [sic] it was a game!!! You say you wanna sit & get ya life right. . . they say nah […] you pay me!!!” also stating “It’s still love!!”

The Jaguars have every right to fine Smith under the current CBA signed in 2011 regarding mandatory participation in team activities. Smith has not yet informed the Jaguars officially of his intentions for the 2019 season, thus he is still considered a part of the team and on the 90-man roster.

It is not yet known whether or not the team has opted to fine DE Yannick Ngakoue who was also missing from mandatory minicamp last week as he resolves his contract with the team.

The Jacksonville Jaguars announced today the signings of WR Tre McBride and Rookie DT Kalani Vakameilalo. Both players had a tryout during yesterday’s minicamp practice. They have waived LB Nick DeLuca and LS Christian Kuntz to make room.

McBride has played for the Tennesee Titans, Chicago Bears, and the New York Jets during his time in the NFL. In 2017 he hauled in eight receptions for 144 yards. His lone touchdown came in 2015 with the Tennesee Titans. The Jaguars currently have 12 WRs on the roster including McBride. They will enter training camp for a battle for possibly five or six spots. Currently, it would be a surprise if McBride makes the team.

Vakameilao went undrafted out of Oregon State where he posted 75 tackles, including 13.5 tackles for loss.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have officially wrapped up their 2019 NFL Draft class with the signing of third-round pick Quincy Williams the team has announced today. Williams played college football at Murray State as a linebacker and safety and will be playing LB with the Jaguars.

Following the departure of WLB Telvin Smith, the Jaguars needed to find a replacement, and they hope Williams can eventually develop into that role. During OTAs and mandatory minicamp, Williams has taken some first-team reps at LB along with LB Ramik Wilson. The WLB battle will be one to watch during training camp later this summer.

Williams spoke briefly following the signing of his contract stating, “I’ve been dreaming on this and waiting on this moment my whole life,” Williams said. “I’m just here to answer the question of, ‘Who is Quincy Williams?’”
