Jaguars OG Mackenzy Bernadeau is the favorite to start at left guard in 2016.
The Jaguars were hoping Alabama center Ryan Kelly would fall to them in the second round but the Colts grabbed him with the 18th overall pick. Now Brandon Linder will shift to center with Bernadeau sliding in at left guard. Bernadeau has made 40 career starts at left guard, though his only start for Dallas last season came at right guard. Bernadeau may have to hold off Luke Joeckel in camp. Sun, May 15, 2016 12:08:00 PM

Jaguars signed OG Mackenzy Bernadeau, formerly of the Cowboys, to a two-year contract.

FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports the deal has a max value of $4 million, likely reachable through playing-time incentives. Bernadeau is a 30-year-old guard-slash-center. He's been destroyed in two spot starts the last two seasons.

Cowboys OG Mackenzy Bernadeau has taken snaps at left guard and center during OTAs.

Bernadeau started 11 games at right guard last season, but the Cowboys' selection of G Zack Martin has forced Bernadeau into a reserve role. He is working at center and left guard so he can be prepared to play if needed at any position along the interior line. The Cowboys' offensive line is penciled in as LT Tyron Smith, LG Ronald Leary, C Travis Frederick, RG Zack Martin and RT Doug Free.

Mackenzy Bernadeau opened OTAs as the Cowboys' first-team left guard Tuesday.

Ronald Leary started all 16 games at left guard last season. Bernadeau was the right guard. After the Cowboys drafted Zack Martin with the 16th pick, Bernadeau and Leary appear to be competing for the left-guard job. Bernadeau was a top-seven run-blocking right guard in 2013, per Pro Football Focus. Leary was a bit overwhelmed in his first year as a full-time starter.

Cowboys RG Mackenzy Bernadeau is expected to be the odd man out of Dallas' starting lineup after the team drafted Zack Martin in the first round.

Bernadeau had a strong 2013 season, but took a $1.15 million pay cut in March and will now head to the bench. He has versatility to play several positions on the line, so he becomes a key reserve. The Cowboys projected starting front five: LT Tyron Smith, LG Ronald Leary, C Travis Frederick, RG Martin, RT Doug Free.

Cowboys RG Mackenzy Bernadeau has accepted a $1.15 million pay cut for 2014.

We're not sure why Bernadeau had to take a pay cut after arguably the best season of his underwhelming career, but it helps Dallas' cap situation. He's now owed a $1.1 million guaranteed salary in 2014, plus a $500,000 roster bonus. Bernadeau is expected to open the season as the Cowboys' starting right guard.
Mon, Mar 10, 2014 11:00:00 AM

Cowboys placed RG Mackenzy Bernadeau (shoulder, hamstring) on the active/PUP list.

Bernadeau missed the offseason while recovering from shoulder surgery and failed his conditioning test after suffering a hamstring injury on the first day of camp. Coming off a shaky 2012, his starting job is open to competition. The Cowboys haven't ruled out moving first-round pick Travis Frederick to right guard.

Cowboys RG Mackenzy Bernadeau (shoulder surgery) won't participate in this week's minicamp, but is expected to be ready for training camp.

"I'm feeling good, but it's just not football ready yet," Bernadeau said. "I don't want to go out there not being able to compete at 100 percent. ... The first day of (training) camp, I'll be ready to go." Bernadeau is expected to face competition for his starting job from Phil Costa and Ronald Leary.

Cowboys RG Mackenzy Bernadeau (shoulder surgery) is unsure if he'll participate in OTAs.

Even if Bernadeau misses OTAs, he should be ready for training camp. The 27-year-old's roster spot is safe after restructuring his deal, but he will face competition for the starting right guard spot from Phil Costa and Ronald Leary.
Wed, May 15, 2013 08:36:00 PM

Cowboys RG Mackenzy Bernadeau recently underwent shoulder surgery, but is expected to be "fine" for training camp.

The ailment didn't cost Bernadeau any time in 2012, but it's his third surgery in two years. Bernadeau underwent hip and knee operations last offseason. Bernadeau is coming off a mediocre campaign, but held his own as a run blocker. The Cowboys don't have any better options at right guard.
Tue, Mar 19, 2013 05:56:00 PM

Cowboys RG Mackenzy Bernadeau triggered an escalator in his contract, raising his 2013 salary from $1.75 million to $2.25 million.

Bernadeau signed a four-year deal with the Cowboys last offseason as a free agent, and he went on to start all 16 games for the first time in his career. Bernadeau, 27, out of small Bentley College, has the ability to play both center and guard. He's much better in the run game than as a pass protector.
Wed, Jan 30, 2013 10:53:00 PM

Cowboys RG Mackenzy Bernadeau (hip surgery, knee surgery) is expected to see playing time at center when he returns to practice.

Bernadeau was removed from the active/PUP list Saturday, and is among the candidates to replace Phil Costa, who's struggling in training camp. Moving Bernadeau to center would allow the Cowboys to give Ronald Leary an extended look at right guard.
Sat, Aug 4, 2012 10:30:00 PM

Cowboys RG Mackenzy Bernadeau (hip surgery, knee surgery) has been cleared to practice.

He'll come off the active/PUP list. Bernadeau's status was in the air following May hip surgery and a July knee scope, but barring a setback, he should be ready for Week 1. Although Bernadeau made just one start for the Panthers last season, the Cowboys gave him a four-year, $11 million deal on the second day of free agency. It was one of March's most head-scratching moves.
Sat, Aug 4, 2012 04:10:00 PM

Already recovering from surgery to repair a tear in his right hip, Cowboys OG Mackenzy Bernadeau recently underwent "minor" knee surgery.

The Cowboys signed Bernadeau to a four-year, $11 million deal in March with designs on starting him at right guard. He opened camp on the PUP list and isn't going to be in position to compete for that job. It's fair to wonder if Dallas signed damaged goods. The Cowboys may turn to UDFA Ronald Leary at right guard.

Cowboys RG Mackenzy Bernadeau (hip surgery) is targeting a return by the middle of training camp.

Bernadeau has yet to begin running, but he has graduated to light workouts and upper-body exercises. Last year's fourth-rounder, David Arkin, is picking up first-team reps in the meantime.
