Jaguars capsule

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (4-12)

New faces: DE Chris Clemons, DE Red Bryant, RB Toby Gerhart, rookies QB Blake Bortles, WR Marqise Lee.

Key losses: RB Maurice Jones-Drew, DE Jason Babin, C Brad Meester, OL coach George Yarno.

Strengths: DL, WR, TE.

Weaknesses: OL, QB.

What's New: Jaguars still in rebuilding mode, but have reason for hope with way Bortles, Lee and other youngsters played in preseason. Chad Henne will be under center for opener, with Bortles waiting to take over and possibly give franchise its first big-time quarterback in more than a decade.

Expectations: Jaguars lost first eight games by double digits last season, a historically inept start that showed how far they had to go in coach Gus Bradley's first year. Being more competitive - close games in fourth quarter - is next step in team's progression.
