It's a good year for a free agent to find himself listed as a second-tier option on the Jacksonville Jaguars' offseason shopping list.
Skuta, 29 next month, registered five of his 5.5 career sacks last season. He should be ticketed for the "Otto" strong-side linebacker spot that mixes pass rushing with coverage responsibilities in Gus Bradley's defense.
Caldwell gave us a glimpse at how the sausage is made in NFL free agency.
With more available salary-cap space than any team in the league, Caldwell overpaid his fallback options once his initial targets fell by the wayside. The money was there to spend, so he spent it.
While the Jaguars landed just one big-ticket item in Thomas and a proven starter in Odrick, they did well to add much-needed depth that will allow them to take a "best player available" approach to the draft.
More importantly, with pressure mounting in the third year of a regime that has thus far yielded disappointing results, Caldwell and Bradley will enter the 2015 season with their strongest roster yet.
