The Jacksonville Jaguars are slowly putting all the pieces together.
They gave Trevor Lawrence an elite coach for a quarterback, bringing in Doug Pederson to help him grow as the star he can become.
Pederson brought his winning mentality and helped turn the franchise culture around right away, putting that infamous and dark year with Urban Meyer in the past.
It took them a while, but the Jaguars proved that they were ready to compete already, finishing the season with an impressive winning streak to snatch the AFC South Division Title away from the Tennessee Titans.
And now, they might get one massive reinforcement to continue bolstering their offense, as Calvin Ridley is officially eligible to apply for reinstation.
Unsurprisingly, that’s great news for Lawrence, who took to Twitter to show his support for the out-of-favor wide receiver.

Ridley was suspended for at least one year after being involved in one of the most bizarre, head-scratching, and lowkey hilarious incidents in recent NFL history.
He gambled a total of $3,900 in several NFL games, even placing bets on the Atlanta Falcons — his team back then — to win.
That questionable decision cost him his yearly salary of $11.1 million for last season, as well as the chance to suit up and play.
The Jaguars’ passing game fared quite well last season, with Christian Kirk, Zay Jones, and Evan Engram stepping up.
So, one would only expect them to be even better in 2023, now that they’ll add a huge big-play threat and a reliable guy near the endzone.
