When the free agent negotiating period opens Saturday, the Jaguars will begin the process of filling many holes. At least initially, it isn’t expected to include the secondary. Assuming the Jaguars re-sign veteran cornerback Will Blackmon this weekend, it will give them 13 defensive backs — seven cornerbacks and six safeties — under contract. They entered camp last year with 16 on the roster. read more

Flexibility was the word Jaguars coach Gus Bradley often referred to Friday when describing the importance of re-signing veteran quarterback Chad Henne. A day before his agent would have been able to negotiate with other teams, Henne signed a two-year contract that a league source said was worth $8 million ($4.5 million guaranteed) and includes incentives for starting games. read more

The Jaguars are taking the right approach with their quarterback situation by signing Chad Henne as their safety net. Plus, there’s no point in kicking Blaine Gabbert to the curb until circumstances play out in the NFL Draft that might warrant releasing him. Coach Gus Bradley was purposely vague on Gabbert’s future Friday, twice saying “we’ll see what happens,” stressing that he wants to keep the door open for the 2011 first-round pick to compete for a roster spot. At this point, it’s the smart play. read more

The Jacksonville Jaguars have agreed to a two-year deal with quarterback Chad Henne, keeping the veteran from hitting free agency and possibly shaking up what the Jaguars have planned in the 2014 draft.

O'Halloran: Age, injury history, other obstacles will keep Jaguars' interest in free-agent quarterback Michael Vick low
Let’s count the reasons why a relationship between quarterback Michael Vick and the Jaguars makes no sense: 1. The Jaguars still expect to sign back-up quarterback Chad Henne before the negotiating period opens Saturday. That means they wouldn’t need Vick. (If Henne does depart, the Jaguars could stick their toe into the Old QB Waters, but not for Vick or Josh McCown, another topical name out there). 2. The Jaguars in the first 14 months with Dave Caldwell running the team have been totally against signing free agents over 30 years old. read more

The Jaguars have five offensive tackles under contract after re-signing backups Cam Bradfield and Sam Young to two-year contracts on Thursday. Left tackle Luke Joeckel (broken leg) is expected to be healthy for off-season workouts next month and right tackle Austin Pasztor showed enough to be penciled in as a starter. Now about rebuilding the Jaguars’ interior offensive line. All of it. Literally. Center Brad Meester (16 starts): Retired. Right guard Uche Nwaneri (16 starts): Cut. Left guard Will Rackley (11 starts): Likely demoted. read more
