Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (ACL) said he will begin cutting soon.
Beachum tore his ACL in October. He has been running and pushing sleds in a straight line, and he has begun doing pass sets as well. It sounds like he should participate in at least part of training camp, and it would be a surprise if he is not ready for Week 1. Beachum also said he plans to play left tackle, a spot formerly occupied by 2013 No. 2 overall pick Luke Joeckel. The Jaguars declined to pick up Joeckel's fifth-year option earlier this week.

Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (ACL) confirmed he'll be ready for Week 1.

He'll begin "football movements" next week and will wear a brace on his surgically-repaired left knee. Head coach Gus Bradley has already said the starting left tackle job is his to lose. OTAs are a long shot for Beachum, but he should be ready close to the start of training camp.
Mar 25 - 8:24 PM

The Florida Times Union's Ryan O'Halloran believes the Jaguars' left tackle job is Kelvin Beachum's to lose as long as he is healthy.

Beachum has already said he is not interested in playing guard and had offers on the table in free agency to play left tackle. It is unlikely he would have signed with Jacksonville unless he thought the left tackle job was his to lose. Beachum is questionable for training camp after tearing his ACL last October. If he can prove his health, he should be able to easily beat out first-round bust Luke Joeckel. Joeckel could end up starting at guard if he loses out to Beachum.
Mar 22 - 1:01 PM

The Jaguars expect new OT Kelvin Beachum (torn ACL) to be ready "early" in training camp.

That could mean anything, from Beachum being ready by late July or missing the entire preseason. Beachum has been brought in to push disappointing LT Luke Joeckel, but that will be hard to do if he misses more than a week or two of camp.
Mar 21 - 1:29 PM

New Jaguars OT Kelvin Beachum's one-year deal is worth $4.5 million, but includes a four-year, $35.5 million option.

Essentially, if Beachum proves he's over his torn ACL and replaces Luke Joeckel at left tackle, the Jags can turn a one-year flier into a bargain multi-year pact. Beachum is competing with Joeckel, but could move to right tackle in the future, or even guard.
Mar 17 - 5:00 PM

Jaguars signed OT Kelvin Beachum, formerly of the Steelers.

It's an interesting move for a team that has 2013 No. 2 overall pick Luke Joeckel on the blindside, and invested big money in RT Jermey Parnell last offseason. Beachum is recovering from a torn ACL, but will immediately pressure a disappointing Joeckel upon his return to full health. Joeckel was among the league's least effective left tackles last season, while Beachum did a strong job in Pittsburgh the past two years. It's also possible Beachum kicks inside to guard.
Mar 15 - 5:27 PM

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette reports the Steelers would like to re-sign free agent LT Kelvin Beachum.

Pittsburgh wants to re-sign Beachum, who is coming off an October ACL tear, to a one-year deal. He likely wants a longer-term commitment and has taken several visits during free agency to see if he can find a better deal. It is unlikely any team is going to invest heavily in Beachum coming off the injury, however, which may make a "prove-it" deal with the Steelers his best option. Beachum is visiting the Jaguars on Monday.
Mar 14 - 10:01 AM

Free agent OT Kelvin Beachum will visit the Jaguars Monday.

A previous report had Beachum visiting Seattle. Jacksonville's interest in Beachum is another sign the coaching staff isn't sold on Luke Joeckel. Beachum has also been linked to the Jets and Baltimore.
Mar 12 - 3:21 PM

Free agent OT Kelvin Beachum will visit the Seahawks after the Jets.

Beachum has now been connected to three teams, with the Ravens joining the Jets and Seahawks. His Seattle visit will take place on Monday if he escapes New York without a deal. The Seahawks need a new blindside protector with Russell Okung expected to bolt.
Mar 11 - 1:22 PM

Free agent LT Kelvin Beachum will visit the Jets soon.

The Ravens are also known to have interest, though there's no meeting scheduled as of now. Unless the Jets cut ties with LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson's bloated salary, Beachum would likely be viewed as a right tackle or guard candidate in New York. The Steelers have been hoping to get Beachum back at a reduced cost after his ACL tear, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen.
Mar 11 - 12:22 PM

NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala reports the Ravens are "taking a look at" free agent LT Kelvin Beachum.

After losing versatile superstar G/T Kelechi Osemele to the Raiders on a mega-deal, the Ravens are now onto backup plans. Beachum has similar versatility to Osemele, as he can play both guard and tackle. Coming off an October torn ACL, he also may come at a discount. Beachum has said he won't sign anywhere he can't play left tackle, though indications are the Ravens are willing to cut incumbent LT Eugene Monroe if they can find a replacement.
Mar 9 - 10:25 AM

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Gerry Dulac reports the Steelers "think they might be able" to re-sign free agent LT Kelvin Beachum (knee) on a one-year deal.

After suffering a torn ACL in October, Beachum may be finding a cold market during the tampering window. A one-year deal could allow him to rehab his value before hitting the market again next offseason. With LG Ramon Foster set to re-sign, the Steelers could surprisingly keep the left side of their offensive line intact for another season.
Mar 8 - 9:49 PM

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler said it "seems clear" the Steelers will allow impending free agent LT Kelvin Beachum to test the market.

Steelers GM Kevin Colbert said the organization wants to "see where the market goes" before making a decision on their left tackle. Beachum played like a franchise player in 2014, but he has just one season of above-average tape and is rehabbing a torn ACL. Pittsburgh could be betting on Beachum finding a cold market. With so many teams flush with cap space, it is a dangerous gamble. Alejandro Villanueva struggled in Beachum's place last season.
Feb 17 - 5:36 PM

Asked about free agent LT Kelvin Beachum on Tuesday, Steelers GM Kevin Colbert said "we'll see where the market goes."

Ben Roethlisberger's blindside protector since midway through the 2013 season, Beachum is recovering from a torn ACL. He helped stabilize a longtime trouble spot for the Steelers, while Alejandro Villanueva was a steep downgrade last season. Colbert could be hoping he gets a discount with Beachum coming off a major injury.
Feb 16 - 3:08 PM

Impending free agent LT Kelvin Beachum said he isn't open to kicking inside to guard.

He knows where the money is, and that's at left tackle. "I have played left tackle my entire career, and I was thrust into all kinds of positions when I got here and I was a team player from that perspective, but I made my mark as a left tackle," Beachum said. The 2012 seventh-rounder can play all five positions up front, but prefers to stay on the blind side after making all his starts there since Week 6 of 2013. Beachum tore his ACL in October and turns 27 in June.
