Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell doesn’t get nearly enough credit for turning his team around over the last few years. Once bereft of talent, this now may be the most stacked roster in the NFL, and it’s a prime destination for free agents looking for a Super Bowl opportunity. Yes, the questions about Blake Bortles’ viability remain, but outside of that, it’s tough to find too many holes in Jacksonville’s depth chart.nfl cheap jerseys from china
One thing Caldwell and executive vice president of football operations Tom Coughlin could do at this point is replace retired linebacker Paul Posluszny with another veteran linebacker who can get things done on the field. Posluszny was rightly respected for his mindset and ability to mentor his teammates on Jacksonville’s young defense, but it was also pretty clear last season that when he was on the field in the Jags’ base 4-3, he was an obvious liability in pass coverage—the veteran just couldn’t get to the sideline and up the seam quickly enough anymore.
NaVorro Bowman, who played well in Oakland’s china nfl nike jerseys defense last season after recovering from serious knee and Achilles tendon injuries over the last few years, would be a perfect addition.
Bowman doesn’t have the wheels he did when he was one of the league’s most dynamic linebackers for the 49ers, but he’s still a very strong run defender, and he can still cover screens and flat routes. And according to Pro Football Focus, buy nfl jerseys wholesale Bowman’s 33 run stops tied him for seventh among all NFL linebackers last season.
Per ESPN’s Paul Gutierrez, Raiders defensive coordinator Paul Guenther wants the veteran back with the Raiders.all nfl jerseys
“I think NaVorro is a prototype middle linebacker,” Guenther said. “I love smart guys who love playing football. Hopefully we can get him back in the fold and keep him a Raider.”
A nice thought, but if Bowman wants to finish out his career with a Super Bowl ring, there are few better teams to join for that opportunity than the Jaguars—and few teams with a clear need at Bowman’s position. Imagine him patrolling the field on first and second down with fellow linebackers Myles Jack and Telvin Smith, two athletic marvels who cover a ton of ground, and you might have Jacksonville’s secret weapon for the 2018 season.
