5 NFL Teams Already Planning for Next Offseason
Rob Foldy-USA TODAY Sports
The Jacksonville Jaguars are unlikely to become immediate contenders under new head coach Gus Bradley.

If there is one constant among all 32 NFL teams and their fans each offseason, it’s optimism. 

While many NFL teams are expected to improve this season, not every team can. Some teams will make big steps forward from pretender to contender in 2013, and some of the league’s struggling franchises will remain cellar-dwellers in the upcoming year.

For some NFL teams, the most important goal shouldn’t necessarily be rising to contention in 2013, but putting themselves in position to do so in 2014 and beyond.

The following five teams were all among the NFL’s 10 worst teams last season. While each of them has made significant efforts to improve this offseason, they likely remain at least one year away from being serious contenders.

Although each of these teams has the potential to improve from their disappointing 2012 seasons, they should all be thinking ahead to 2014.

For each of these teams, the long-term potential for success is much more promising than the short-term potential will be in 2013. Additionally, they have all made moves this offseason that have indicated a focus on longer-term goals above immediate improvement.
