The latest Jacksonville Jaguars articles for your reading pleasure!
"Sure, there were links to obvious fits in the team, but the Jaguars skipped on players in free agency and on potential re-signs who could have had the team in even better shape than it is currently.No one understands the situation and needs of the Jaguars better than general manager Dave Caldwell, but there are fair criticisms to make."
"This team will live or die on Blake Bortles’s shoulders. The only way he doesn’t start all 16 games is if he gets injured. Chad Henne is still the number two. If Jaguar’s fans are lucky he won’t see the field and continue on in his role of mentoring Bortles.If the Jaguar’s carry a third quarterback, my money is on Jeff Tuel to beat out Stephen Morris. Morris was brought in due his close relationship with former offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch. Jedd Fisch is gone, but new offensive line coach Doug Marrone brought his quarterback’s coach Nathaniel Hackett with him. His relationship with Tuel and Tuel’s starting experience gives him the edge to gain a roster spot."
"The defensive line was Jacksonville’s strength on defense in 2014, but the Jaguars still brought in defensive tackle Jared Odrick from Miami to complement Sen’Derrick Marks in the interior. Jacksonville even drafted defensive tackle Michael Bennett out of Ohio State in the sixth round to learn behind the veterans. The Jaguars had also drafted Florida defensive end Dante Fowler with the No. 3 overall pick in hopes he would be a versatile pass rusher as a rookie, but a season-ending injury during the first day of rookie minicamp dashed those plans. But with Marks and Odrick in the middle and Clemons and Tyson Alualu on the ends, the Jaguars’ defensive line should be even better in 2015."
"A sixth-round draft pick by the New England Patriots in 2006, Mincey bounced around a couple of practice squads before finally landing with the Jaguars in 2007. Once here, it took him a couple of years (and one season outside of football) to find his groove, but once he did he contributed rather well."
