Jacksonville Jaguars continue moving forward without Justin Blackmon – ESPN

"Even so, the Jaguars have not cut the former Oklahoma State standout and Caldwell has said the team has no plans to do so. Blackmon’s spot on the reserve/suspended list means he doesn’t count against the roster limit or salary cap and the Jaguars do not have to pay his salary. His contract paused upon his suspension, so he will owe the Jaguars 2½ years when and if he returns to the NFL."

Expectations for Allen Hurns – NFL Spin Zone

"Despite the disappointing numbers to close out 2014, Hurns vastly exceeded expectations as an undrafted rookie free-agent out of the University of Miami. The Jaguars expected 2014 second round draft picks Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee to make more of an impact then Hurns, but injuries cut short a lot of their rookie season."

"“I don’t think about that stuff,” he said. “Luckily, I know how to focus on the right things. If you’re focusing on [the contract], you’re not focused on the right things. I’ve been in contract years before and it’s not something, when I walk on the field, I’m thinking about. Being a kicker, you have to focus on the things you can control and kicking is the one thing I can control.”"
