NFL free agency: Jaguars release veteran TE Marcedes Lewis—Next Detroit Lions target?

Could the former Pro Bowl tight end be the Lions’ next TE target? You can add one more veteran tight end to the free agency pool. On Tuesday, the Jacksonville Jaguars surprisingly released Marcedes Lewis, freeing up $3.5 million in cap space: AP source: Longtime Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis being released after 12 seasons with team— Mark Long (@APMarkLong) March 20, 2018 The move is particularly shocking, because just a month ago the Jaguars picked up Lewis’ one-year option for the 2018 season. Obviously, this move was more about cap space than it was the player, and Lewis...

Will Allen Hurns interest Dallas given their pursuit of wide receivers this offseason?

After ‘missing out’ on Sammy Watkins last week, maybe the Cowboys will have interest in Allen Hurns. The Jacksonville Jaguars are a team that has had its struggles on offense previous to 2017. The addition of Leonard Fournette and the coaching of Doug Marrone made the unit much better. Part of the issue has been Blake Bortles, drafted with the third overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Despite all of that, one player who was productive when healthy was Allen Hurns. At the age of 26, Hurns has been a quality player and should be a hot name in free agency. After letting Allen Robinson...

How did the Jaguars afford this?!

The Jacksonville Jaguars once again spent in NFL free agency, landing high priced free agent Andrew Norwell, as well as a slew of other players. If you follow along on Twitter you’ve probably noticed replies to the likes of Adam Schefter all have common replies. Where did the Jaguars get all this money? How do they still have cap room? Did they find the unlimited cap room cheat code? There’s no secret thing the Jaguars did to be able to do what they did in free agency, it’s just a simple manipulation of how the salary cap works, an owner who can dish out cash and managing cap hits on...

Jaguars Daily: A.J. Bouye wants to face offense in practice

A.J. Bouye is looking forward to facing the Jacksonville Jaguars offense in practice - JaguarsWire.comIt appears the Jacksonville Jaguars have had another solid free agency roundup and the team definitely should come out of the period as a much-improved unit. One player who would definitely agree with that notion is Jags Pro Bowl corner A.J. Bouye, who joined NFL Network’s Total Access to discuss the Jags’ free agency additions and more. One of the questions he was asked in particular by one of the show’s hosts in former NFL linebacker Willie McGinest was what would fuel the Jags in...

2018 NFL mock draft: Jaguars pick OT Orlando Brown?

What if after all the quarterback hype, the Jacksonville Jaguars selected a right tackle in the first round this year. The Jacksonville Jaguars have positioned themselves extremely well with this year’s free agency. They’ve upgraded the tight end position (albeit slightly) and gotten what they want at wide receiver. They’ll likely add a running back in the middle rounds of the draft and the turnstile that was the left guard position has been filled nicely with All-Pro offensive lineman Andrew Norwell. Quarterback is the natural pick at No. 29 overall, right? Dan Kadar of...

53-man roster prediction after free agency

Now that the Jaguars have upgraded their offensive line and special teams units with free agency, what could the 53-man roster look like? The Jacksonville Jaguars finished free agency and look to go into the 2018 NFL season with a massive upgrade at offensive line and some new bodies at tight end — two of the most glaring needs on that side of the ball. A new slot cornerback was signed to replace Aaron Colvin as well. But quarterback wasn’t addressed (in fact, Blake Bortles is the only quarterback on the roster) and we lost who I believe to be our best player on offense in wide receiver...

Can we figure out the Jags draft pick at 29 now?

The Jacksonville Jaguars made a flurry of free agency signings over the past few days, headlined by All-Pro left guard Andrew Norwell. After Norwell, the Jaguars seemingly targeted a lot of their areas of need with veteran free agents, clogging up a lot of their roster’s proverbial holes in the process. Doing such typically leans a team to the ultimate freedom with their pick in the first round of the draft, but with the Jaguars holding the No. 29 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, are they actually telegraphing their move? Last offseason the moves the Jaguars made in their signings...

Jets free agency news and rumor tracker with live updates 3/16

Free agency moves on as the Jets continue their attempt to upgrade the roster. Thursday brought more moves as the Jets signed kicker Cairo Santos and re-signed cornerback Morris Claiborne. Santos is best known for a productive stint with the Chiefs. Claiborne was part of the Jets’ secondary in 2017 and had an up and down campaign. The Jets also lost Austin Seferian-Jenkins to the Jaguars. The tight end signed a similar deal to the Jets’ reported offer to him so perhaps he just wanted to move to greener pastures. The Jets are still armed with plenty of cap space so free agency will...

Jaguars have a plan for back up QB

The Jacksonville Jaguars held a press conference on Thursday to introduce some of their new free agent signings and talk about other positions and where else they could go during 2018 NFL free agency. One interesting comment made by general manager Dave Caldwell was about the quarterback position. Most figured the Jaguars would just re-sign Henne, but Caldwell mentioned that they have a plan for the back up quarterback position and it doesn’t necessarily need to be a veteran.
