Last season, the Jacksonville Jaguars went 4-12, finished third in the AFC South and missed the playoffs. They drafted quarterback Blake Bortles in the first round of this year’s draft and signed running back Toby Gerhart and defensive linemen Chris Clemons, Red Bryant and Ziggy Hood in free agency.
Jacksonville opens the 2014 preseason at home against Tampa Bay, followed by back-to-back road trips against Chicago and Detroit before finishing at home against Atlanta. The team begins the regular season Sept. 7 on the road against Philadelphia.
