The Jacksonville Jaguars went into this offseason with the goal of rebuilding and revamping their entire franchise, and that began with the hiring of Urban Meyer as the head coach. They then went on a spending spree in free agency, and followed that up by landing a ton of young talent in the NFL Draft, headlined by Clemson QB and No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence.

Defensive end K'Lavon Chaisson out of LSU was a first-round pick of the Jaguars in 2020 and is expected to be a vital part of the Jaguars' defense for years to come. However, it looks like Chaisson will be missing at the very least a portion of Jaguars' minicamp.

Urban Meyer announced Chaisson would be out following a positive COVID-19 test.

Chaisson reportedly just returned from Von Miller's pass-rush camp this past weekend. Whether it was contracted there or someplace else isn't known, but Chaisson will be on the sidelines for the time being.

After putting up 19 tackles, 1.0 sack, 9 QB hits and 3 tackles for loss in 16 games during his rookie season, Chaisson will surely be looking to take a big leap in 2021. So, everyone involved is likely hoping to get the young defensive lineman back on the field as soon as they can.

Despite all of the changes this offseason, Jacksonville enters the season as longshots according to the latest NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook. The Jaguars own +10000 odds to win the Super Bowl and just +700 odds to even win their AFC South division.
