ESPN thinks Teddy Bridgewater will sign with Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars have a quarterback problem — a quarterbacks room that consists of Blake Bortles, Cody Kessler, Tanner Lee, and Alex McGough. In my opinion, McGough should be the only quarterback still in that room in September. All that aside, the Jaguars will be in the market for some fresh blood at the quarterback position and free agency and the NFL Draft will be two avenues they take a swing (or two) at it this year — and ESPN contributor KC Joyner believes that if Teddy Bridgewater is let go by the New Orleans Saints, his home this year will be in Jacksonville.

What to do with Fowler?

The man the Rams traded for midseason is slated to be a free agent in a few weeks, do the Rams intend on keeping Fowler around? Or will they replace him? As the Los Angeles Rams constructed a proper and true Super Bowl contending roster, they sought to fix the minimal holes the roster did contain. That’s when they secured a midseason trade for EDGE rusher Dante Fowler Jr.from the Jacksonville Jaguars. The trade cost the Rams a third-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft and a fifth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. But, now it’s decision time. Fowler is slated to hit the free agent market in...

Free Agent Spotlight: Edge Rusher, Dante Fowler, Jr.

Could the Bucs add a former first-round pick? It appears Dante Fowler, Jr. could be heading for NFL free agency. Coming off a starter role with a team that made the Super Bowl isn’t always what to expect to hear before learning that player might be let go. But if he is, what would Fowler, Jr. hitting free agency look like? DANTE FOWLER JR.’S CAREER Fowler was drafted third overall in the 2015 Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars after forgoing his college senior year eligibility. Unfortunately, he tore his ACL early in his rookie minicamp and missed his entire rookie year. In 2016 he...

Josh Allen to Jalen Ramsey: ‘Am I still trash?’

Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey doesn’t shy away from the spotlight or an honest answer — so when GQ’s Clay Skipper asked him his opinion on other NFL quarterbacks, he went so far as to call then Buffalo Bills rookie Josh Allen “trash” and a “stupid draft pick”. “I think [Buffalo Bills draft pick Josh] Allen is trash. I don’t care what nobody say. He’s trash,” Ramsey told Clay Skipper of GQ Magazine. “And it’s gonna show too. That’s a stupid draft pick to me. We play them this year, and I’m excited as hell.

Quarterback is far from Jaguars’ only concern on offense this offseason

Much has been talked about with the quarterback position for the Jacksonville Jaguars, and for good reason. Blake Bortles and the Jaguars are expected to part ways this offseason, which has led to just about everybody and their mother predicting that the Jaguars will acquire Nick Foles through either free agency or trade. Many people also expect the Jaguars to draft a quarterback early as well — regardless of if the team does land Foles or not.
