Still, there is an issue Caldwell hopes to resolve: making sure veteran receiver Cecil Shorts remains a part of the team beyond this season. read more

Jaguars safety Josh Evans is on limited training camp duty while recovering from foot surgery

Jaguars safety Josh Evans was vaulted into the Jaguars starting lineup as a rookie last year after Dwight Lowery suffered a concussion in the second game of the season. Evans, who played at the University of Florida and was drafted on the sixth round a year ago, wound up playing in 15 games and started 11. He played so well that the Jaguars cut Lowery, who signed this off season with Atlanta, after he recovered. Evans had 54 tackles, including 43 solo tackles. Evans, though, is getting off to a slow start in his second season. read more
