Speaking on his "Real GM" show, The Ringer's Mike Lombardi said he expects the Jaguars to draft a quarterback.

"[Tom] Coughlin’s going to draft a quarterback," he said. "This is the perfect draft to do it." Lombardi went on to say the Jaguars need to admit their "mistake" and move on from Blake Bortles. "[GM] Dave Caldwell was always looking through rose-colored glasses," Lombardi said of Bortles. "Coughlin doesn’t have those glasses." The Jaguars are sure to decline Bortles' fifth-year option, making him a free agent at the end of the season.

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone was "surprised" LT Branden Albert didn’t attend voluntary workouts.

"I haven’t had any communication with him," Marrone said. "I don’t know what his thoughts are going forward." Albert wants more guaranteed money after getting traded to Jacksonville, but there haven’t been any discussions to this point. Barring a new deal, he'll count $8.9 million against the 2017 cap.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell said he's yet to make a decision on Blake Bortles’ fifth-year option.

"We’re still discussing that," said Caldwell. "There are a lot of things that go into it." The option is worth $18 million, an obviously unrealistic number for a borderline NFL starter. Jacksonville has until May 3 to decide.

Jaguars claimed DB Tracy Howard off waivers from the Browns.

Howard logged 251 snaps as a rookie last year. If he makes the team, Howard will provide safety depth behind starters Barry Church and Tashaun Gipson.
Apr 21 - 4:36 PM

Jaguars WLB Telvin Smith said he isn't concerned about a potential contract extension.

Smith is entering the final year of his rookie deal. A 2014 fifth-rounder out of FSU, Smith is an asset in today's NFL as a linebacker with safety speed and sideline-to-sideline ability. An every-down player, Smith was Pro Football Focus' No. 8-ranked 4-3 outside linebacker last season, grading out second best in run defense. Beat writer Ryan O'Halloran believes Smith could command a Kiko Alonso-type deal at four years and $28 million.
Apr 19 - 10:07 AM

Jaguars LB Paul Posluszny said he will be moving to the strong side.

Posluszny has played in the middle throughout his career and is coming off a solid season, but the Jaguars want to make room for 2016 second-rounder Myles Jack in the middle. "It's going to be the biggest challenge of my career," Posluszny said of the move. If the veteran can keep up his level of play at a new position in his age-33 season, the Jaguars should boast a quality linebacker corps.
Apr 18 - 12:26 PM

Jaguars signed FB Tommy Bohanon and WR Larry Pinkard.

Pinkard went undrafted out of Old Dominion in 2015. Bohanon was the Jets' fullback from 2013-2015, although he struggled mightily as a lead blocker in those years.
Apr 17 - 3:55 PM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, new Jaguars LT Branden Albert is not present for the start of voluntary workouts and wants a new contract.

Acquired from the Dolphins in February, Albert was expected to discuss a new contract with the team. But it hasn't happened to this point. He has two years remaining on his current deal and likely wants some guaranteed money and security. Albert turns 33 this year and is on his last legs as a quality starting left tackle. The Jaguars need to find their left tackle of the future.
Apr 17 - 10:26 AM

Coach Doug Marrone said the Jaguars may move RG A.J. Cann to left guard.

Cann played 1,113 snaps last season, grading out as PFF's No. 57 guard out of 77 qualifiers. He was below average as both a run and pass blocker. Cann played left guard in college and could be flipped back to that side, leaving Patrick Omameh and Earl Watford to compete for the other guard job.
Apr 17 - 9:45 AM

Allen Robinson believes he has "earned" a contract extension.

The former second-round pick is set to earn $898,755 in the final year of his rookie deal. "If we get something done, we do," said Robinson. "If not, I have a big year coming ahead for me and I have an obligation to my teammates to play at a high level." Robinson was a monster in 2015 (80 catches, 1,400 yards, 14 touchdowns) but disappeared for stretches during a lackluster 2016 campaign (73/883/6). A-Rob averaged over 100 yards per game after Doug Marrone took over as head coach late last season and should be in for a bounce-back year.
Apr 16 - 11:50 AM

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said Blake Bortles has to "go back and build his foundation from the beginning."

"We told him we wanted him to make sure his arm was ready to go because there will be an increase in reps, which will help him," said Marrone. "You start with the foundation and you look to see how fast they can work through the foundation." Bortles has spent the offseason ironing out his mechanics with quarterback guru Adam Dedeaux in California. The Jaguars are still undecided on whether to pick up his $18 million option for 2018. That decision will have to come by May 3.
Apr 16 - 10:25 AM

Jaguars LB Myles Jack said he is looking forward to playing a bigger role as a sophomore.

Jack was limited to 239 snaps on defense as a rookie, but coach Doug Marrone has consistently said he will be a three-down linebacker this season, a sentiment enforced when the Jaguars cut Dan Skuta. With MLB Paul Posluszny coming off an exceptional season and Telvin Smith locked in on the weak side, Jack will likely stick to the strong side for now.

Former Jaguars K Josh Scobee is retiring after 13 seasons in the NFL.

A fifth-round pick of the Jaguars in 2004, Scobee spent 11 seasons in Jacksonville, converting almost 81 percent of his attempts. He struggled after being traded to the Steelers just before the 2015 season and was cut by the Saints last May. He will sign a one-day contract to retire as a Jaguar.

Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times Union would "guess" the Jaguars won't pick up Blake Bortles' fifth-year option for 2018.

Exercising Bortles' option would have been a no-brainer a year ago after his breakout 2015 campaign. Rather than taking a step forward, Bortles showed significant regression in 2016 while struggling with his mechanics. O'Halloran is only making an educated guess, but Bortles certainly hasn't developed into the franchise QB the Jags were hoping for when they drafted him third overall in 2014. Jacksonville has until May 3 to pick up his option.
Mar 26 - 8:57 AM

Jaguars signed DE Malliciah Goodman.

A 2013 fourth-rounder of the Falcons, Goodman was part of final cuts last summer and spent one week of the season on the Seahawks' roster before spending another two weeks in December with Atlanta. He's a camp body.
