Doug Marrone will be the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars headed into 2020. Marrone was one of the favorites to be fired on Black Monday, but the organization announced that he would remain in his position for at least one more year shortly after the conclusion of the Jaguars’ 2019 campaign. Marrone must show definitive improvement in his fourth year in Duval County to earn an extension next year, yet Jacksonville is probably in the worst position of any team in the AFC South.

Season Recap

Jacksonville was optimistic coming into the season after signing Nick Foles to replace Blake Bortles as the team’s staring quarterback. Foles led Philadelphia to a Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots just two years ago, and the Jaguars gave Foles over $50 million guaranteed to hopefully lead them to the promised land.

Unfortunately, Foles broke his clavicle in the first half of the opening game of the season, and he only played in four games all year. When Foles returned, it was clear that rookie Gardner Minshew II was the better option, so the high-priced free agent sat on the bench while Minshew played 14 games. Minshew completed 60.6 percent of his passes for 3,271 yards with 21 touchdowns and six interceptions, showing a lot of promise as a rookie. His numbers were better than Foles’ stats, so Minshew will likely be the quarterback next year.

Leonard Fournette had the best season of his professional career in 2019, putting off talk that the top five pick was a bust. Fournette ran for 1,152 yards and averaged 4.3 YPC, and he had unexpected success as a receiver out of the backfield too. He caught a team-high 76 passes for 522 yards, providing Minshew with a safety valve so the rookie didn’t make mistakes.

D.J. Chark Jr. had an excellent second year in the NFL, establishing rapport with Minshew early on. Despite missing a game due to injury, Chark caught 73 passes for 1,008 yards and eight touchdowns, becoming Jacksonville’s first 1,000-yard receiver since 2015. Chris Conley and Dede Westbrook were solid options in the passing game too, but the Jaguars didn’t have any tight end that caught more than 14 passes all year.

The Jaguars traded away their best defensive player less than halfway through the season when they dealt Jalen Ramsey to the Los Angeles Rams. Ramsey expressed displeasure with Tom Coughlin repeatedly before being traded, and his remarks proved prescient when an NFLPA report found that almost a quarter of NFLPA grievances were filed against the Jaguars.

Despite having one of the most talented defenses in the NFL, only one Jacksonville defender made the Pro Bowl. Calais Campbell had 6.5 sacks and 12.5 tackles for loss, but he was arguably the third-best player in the front seven. Fellow defensive end Yannick Ngakoue had eight sacks and 15 tackles for loss with six passes defensed, and rookie Josh Allen had 10.5 sacks and 11.5 tackles for loss in a breakout campaign.

Three members of the front seven had gaudy stats, but this run defense was the second worst in the NFL this season next to Carolina. The Jaguars allowed 5.1 YPC, and that’s a shocking number considering the talent in the front seven. Jacksonville was outside the top 20 in most defensive categories, so wholesale changes need to be made up front.

2020 Season Preview

Ngakoue held out in the preseason in search of a new deal, so he will likely depart Jacksonville in the offseason unless new Jaguars’ GM Dave Caldwell can get the pass rusher signed to a long-term contract. Caldwell has said that his No. 1 priority is to re-sign Ngakoue to a new deal, but the defensive end was frustrated with Coughlin and the front office all throughout last season.

Marcell Dareus’ $14 million per year contract will come off the books to free up money to sign Ngakoue, but Foles will be on the team for at least one more year. His cap hit of over $33 million is just too much to absorb even though Minshew will likely be starting.

Jacksonville could go in a few different directions with the ninth overall pick in the draft. The Jaguars could use another receiver, although they haven’t had much luck with first-round receivers in their history, or they could plug a hole on defense. That side of the ball has a lot of talent though, and the main concern in 2020 will be buy in.
