NFL: Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The offseason is dead. Players are kind of playing football. Minor transactions will still be made, but until training camps begin and the Football Outsiders’ Annual pops out, what’s happened has happened. Nothing big will really happen until then.

This is a time for summarizing, digging around the bones, and revisiting the past. The most important thing to summarize is the entire offseason itself. Here is what every team in the AFC South has done this offseason. Below is a very important question to answer: Which AFC South team had the best offseason?
