Will Jags spending spree work? Like any team with young QB (like Jets), it depends

The Jacksonville Jaguars spent big money right out of the gate in free agency on guard Brandon Scherff, wide receiver Christian Kirk, linebacker Foye Oluokun, tight end Evan Engram, defensive tackle Foley Fatukasi and wide receiver Zay Jones.

But, you know what, this approach will likely only make them an excellent team if the QB works out.

Last year, the Jaguars picked Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence with the first pick of the draft. As a rookie, he was inconsistent.

Some would argue it was due to his supporting cast.

Other people would argue that his 12 TD, 17 interception rookie season, some of that was on him as far as accuracy and reading defenses.

We will find out a lot this season if it was the chicken or the egg.

However, if he struggles as a full field reader, and with manipulating defensive backs his eyes, there is only so much you can help him with a free agent spending spree.

So the key to Jaguars benefitting from this expensive free-agent class is Lawrence taking the next step as a pro QB.
