It's all about money and numbers.
Who can play the best? Who gives the team more flexibility?
And who can help the Jacksonville Jaguars win on Sundays?
For some veteran players, this 2012 training camp and preseason present battles for playing time and possibly a career in the NFL.
The Jaguars defense is pretty solid and looks to possibly be even better than it was a year ago. There are not too many open starting slots on this team (possibly two or three if rookie Andre Branch becomes a starter).
On offense, this team is still looking for a spark, and maybe street free agents can get the job done (which would cost the team less in the long run). Except for a few guaranteed spots, I really don't think the team can ill-afford to say "no" to anyone who could possibly make a difference.
Here are some players who could be fighting for a roster spot on the team.
