The off season brought some much needed relief but also a shocking surprise as Jacksonville improved at the Quarterback position by signing free agent Nick Foles from Philadelphia but loss Pro Bowl Linebacker Telvin Smith who decided to retire in the prime of his career. If the Jags can stay healthy and get consistent play at Quarterback, the team could resemble what we seen back in 2017.
