Jets signed LT Kelvin Beachum, formerly of the Jaguars, to a three-year, $24 million contract.
The Jets were in desperate need of a tackle after cutting Ryan Clady and Breno Giacomini. Beachum signed with Jacksonville last offseason but the Jags didn't pick up his four-year option and quickly replaced him with Brandon Albert. Beachum offers some name recognition but graded out as one of the league's worst tackles in 2016. Perhaps he'll benefit from a change of scenery. Mar 10 - 6:59 PM

Coach Doug Marrone said the Jaguars haven't ruled out re-signing free agent LT Kelvin Beachum.

Beachum will surely shop his wares after the Jaguars declined his four-year option. And with a shortage of quality left tackles hitting free agency, Beachum should find a nice chunk of guaranteed money. After the Jaguars traded for LT Branden Albert, we doubt Beachum will want to move inside to guard.

The Jets were interested in free agent LT Kelvin Beachum last offseason.

Beachum chose the Jaguars instead, but now the Jets again need two starting tackles after cutting LT Ryan Clady and RT Breno Giacomini. Swing tackle Ben Ijalana is also a free agent. Beachum had a down year in Jacksonville but should be better a year removed from ACL surgery.

Free agent LT Kelvin Beachum played through "consistent knee pain" in the second half of last season.

It’s both a red flag and partly explains Beachum’s struggles. Beachum only missed one game despite never looking fully healthy. There’s rebound potential with Beachum over a year removed from ACL surgery. Beachum is Rotoworld's No. 4 free agent tackle.
Feb 18 - 7:40 PM

Jaguars declined LT Kelvin Beachum's 2017 option.

The option would have kept Beachum under team control for the next four years. Beachum struggled his first year in Jacksonville but was coming off ACL surgery and dealt with early-season concussion issues. It's possible the Jaguars could bring Beachum back on a more affordable deal. The Jets, who were interested in Beachum last offseason, may also be an option.
Feb 15 - 7:19 PM

The Jaguars must decide by 4 PM ET Wednesday whether or not to exercise LT Kelvin Beachum's four-year team option.

The four-year option is worth $35.5 million and contains $13 million in guaranteed money. Jacksonville could choose to decline the option and try and work out a new deal with Beachum, but it would then risk losing its starting left tackle. Beachum missed most of 2015 with a torn ACL and was dreadful his first season with the Jaguars, though he should be better come 2017.

Jaguars have until February 15 to pick up LT Kelvin Beachum's four-year option.

Beachum signed a one-year contract with a four-year team option which includes an additional $13 million in guaranteed money last offseason. Beachum said he does not know which way the Jaguars are leaning, but he understands the process. "There's still something internally they have to continue to handle before they get to taking care of the roster," Beachum said. "I'm going to do what I do, which is train and take care of my body, and make sure I can do everything I can do to put my best foot forward wherever I am next year." Beachum struggled in 15 starts, but he was coming off an ACL tear. Only 27, he should improve as he moves further away from the injury, making this a tough decision for Jacksonville.

Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (knee) is questionable for Week 7.

Jacksonville managed Beachum's reps this week, but he's fully expected to start against Oakland. Beachum is PFF's No. 31 tackle through five games.

Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (knee) did not practice Thursday.

It is a downgrade after Beachum was limited on Wednesday, but it could also just be a rest day to get him ready for the weekend. C Branton Linder (foot) and RT Jeremey Parnell (hip) are also banged up.

Jaguars declared LT Kelvin Beachum, QB Brandon Allen, CB Prince Amukamara, C Brandon Linder, TE Ben Koyack, DE Jared Odrick and DE Chris Smith inactive for Week 3 against the Ravens.

Beachum is week to week with a concussion while Amukamara is battling a hamstring injury. Damon House (hamstring, illness) and Chris Ivory (general medical issue) are both active for Jacksonville.

Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 3.

Luke Joeckel figures to slide over from left guard to man Blake Bortles' blind side. It's a big downgrade. Starting C Brandon Linder (knee) is questionable. It's unlikely this line creates many running lanes Sunday.

Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (concussion) will be discharged from a San Diego hospital on Monday.

Beachum is fine to return to Jacksonville but remains in the league's concussion protocol. It's hard to envision him suiting up for Sunday's game against Baltimore. If Beachum can't go, Jermey Parnell would likely move from right to left tackle with Patrick Omameh occupying the right side.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (concussion) remained hospitalized Monday morning.

Beachum took a knee to the helmet while falling in the Jaguars' Week 2 loss to the Chargers. He was treated on the field for several minutes before being immobilized on a backboard and carted to a waiting ambulance. Thankfully, Beachum reportedly had feeling in his extremities, but this is still a scary situation. We wish him the best.

Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum was carted off the field with an apparent head injury Week 2 against the Chargers.

Beachum took a knee to the helmet while falling late in the third quarter. He was immobilized on a backboard on the field before being carted off. He was taken to a waiting ambulance outside of the stadium and transferred to a hospital. Thankfully, Beachum did have feeling in his extremities. Luke Joeckel should take over at left tackle.
Sun, Sep 18, 2016 06:52:00 PM

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley announced Kelvin Beachum has won the left tackle job.

This was never in much doubt as long as Beachum proved healthy, and he has done that in the last couple weeks. With Beachum at tackle, former No. 2 overall pick Luke Joeckel will switch to left guard. He struggled at the position in the third preseason game.
