LB J.K. Schaffer 6-0 232

Schaffer is in his second year as an undrafted free agent but I thought I would list him because he has a real shot to get on the roster to replace special teams captain Dan Skuta. He also got a lot of reps at the rookie mini-camp.   How a guy like Schaffer is on his third team I don’t know.  He had 337 tackles, nine sacks, 28 tackles-for-loss, seven INTs, six forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and 15 passes defensed at Cincinnati University.  He also had a productive preseason last year, leading Jacksonville 18 tackles, 1 int, and a pass breakup.

K/P Quinn Sharp

It could be just me hoping to replace often injured Mike Nugent but I think Sharp has a real shot at doing it.  An All-American as both a kicker and punter, Sharp also had 70% of his kickoffs result in touchbacks. He is a true “triple threat kicker” who could be the long term answer to the kicker position.
