So far, free agency has gone quite well for the Jacksonville Jaguars. GM David Caldwell seems to have a vision that he is putting to work and steering the franchise in the right direction.
Caldwell has clearly made the defensive line and getting after quarterback a priority as evidenced by the signings of Red Bryant, Chris Clemons, Ziggy Hood, and the re-signing of Jason Babin. But, unfortunately, the team wasn’t able to snag free agents Walter Thurmond who signed with the New York Giants or Emmanuel Sanders who signed with the Denver Broncos, both whom spent time visiting Jacksonville.
Clearly, Caldwell still wanted to sign a free agent wide receiver and it appears as if he has found his man. Fourth year wideout and former Baltimore Raven, Tandon Doss, has signed with the Jaguars.

Doss will give the Jaguars a bigger target outside, something they haven’t seen in a while.
Doss gives the Jaguars something they didn't have: A big receiver. He's 6-2, 210 pounds. Played collegiately at Indiana.

Doss had 19 catches for Ravens and returned 23 punts. Is 24 years old, 6-foot-2, 201 pounds. #Jaguars

While the punt return job seems to be Ace Sanders’ job to lose, Doss may be able to contribute on kick-offs.
