The Jacksonville Jaguar's 2009 season, 2009- 2010, will be their fifteenth season of play in the National Football League. The Jaguars will be trying to improve on their 5-11 record, and will be doing so under a new front office, headed by new General Manager Gene Smith.

Offseason Moves & Acqusitions Edit

James Harris, Vice Player of Pro Personnel, resigned, a move that was foreshadowed by the awful 2008 season and a series of questionable draft picks; although the draft was handled by joint decision between Head Coach Jack Del Rio and Harris, many agreed Harris deserved the blame for the poor draft picks, although some believe that Del Rio was more responsible than he was made out to be. Thus Gene Smith, previously director of college scouting, was promoted to General Manager, the first person to hold such a title and the authority and accountability that came with it.

A firm believer in the draft, Gene Smith set out immediately to begin the rebuilding process for the Jaguars.

Free agency saw the Jaguars remain relatively quiet compared to the previous offseason. As stated before, Gene Smith was comitted more to the draft; however thisdid nto stop the Jaguars from acquiring players. Torry Holt, a perennial Pro-Bowler and Hall of Fame hopeful, was signed for a veteran presence on the offense after being cut by the St. Louis Rams. Tra Thomas,formerly of the Philadelphia Eagles, was signed for a veteran presence at offensive tackle.

The Jagaurs also signed Sean Considine, free safety, who was also formerly an Eagle.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Jaguars made many cuts that signified a rebuilding process. Drayton Florence and Jerry Porter, two high-priced FA acquisitions from the 2008 offseason, were cut after one year. Tony McDaniel, DT was traded to the Miami Dolphins for an undisclosed draft pick. The most controversial decison however, was the release of veteran RB Fred Taylor, who was a star player for the Jaguars, and had amassed 11,000 rushing yards in his career with Jacksonville, a feat accomplished by few RB's in the history of the NFL. Clearly, a youth movement was underway.
