Jaguars owner says all of Jacksonville’s needs have been addressed
The Jacksonville Jaguars are coming off of an incredibly disappointing 2018 campaign, winning just five games one year after going 10-6 and making it all the way to the AFC Championship Game and coming within a quarter of making it to the Super Bowl.
Obviously, based on the season the Jaguars just had, there were a lot of holes on the roster that needed patching, and owner Shad Khan feels that the front office has done a great job of doing so this offseason, saying that “all of our weaknesses have been addressed,” according to Phillip Heilman of The Florida Times-Union.
The most significant need for the Jaguars was clearly at quarterback, as Blake Bortles had a miserable season after landing a three-year extension from the team following a deep playoff run the year prior.
As a result, the Jaguars went out and signed Nick Foles, who led the Philadelphia Eagles to their first-ever Super Bowl championship during the 2017-18 campaign.
Khan is thrilled about the addition:
“We have to move on and [Foles] was the best one out there,” Khan said. “I can tell you this, categorically, that as soon as the season was over, our dream was to get Nick Foles for all the different reasons that have been elaborated.”
While Foles should certainly be better than Bortles was this past season, the Jaguars still don’t have all that many threats on offense, which makes you wonder just how capable Foles can be in this new system.
Jacksonville also plays in a very tough AFC South division, so it remains to be seen just how solid the Jags will be in 2019.
