Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell said the team doesn't know if suspended WR Justin Blackmon has applied for reinstatement.

"Our process hasn't changed," Caldwell said. "Plan to go without him, but if he emerges, he's going to go in with the top guys and compete. Hopefully we're able to get some news." Blackmon hasn’t appeared in a game since 2013 and remains on indefinite suspension. The Florida Times Union believes Blackmon is done in Jacksonville.

Maurice Jones-Drew will sign a one-day contract with Jacksonville on Tuesday in order to retire as a Jaguar.

One of the best runners of his generation, Jones-Drew was a dynamic all-purpose offensive force during his time with the Jaguars. He racked up almost 11,000 yards from scrimmage during his eight years in Jacksonville, including a 1,980-total yard, 11-touchdown season in 2011. A fantasy football Hall of Famer, Jones-Drew scored 79 touchdowns across 126 career games.

The Florida Times Union's Ryan O'Halloran believes Justin Blackmon is "done-zo" with the Jaguars.

O'Halloran made the comment in a chat, so he was merely speaking his opinion. The Jaguars' higher-ups have backed Blackmon to a certain degree and said nice things about the former No. 5 overall pick, but by the way the team has approached free agency and the draft over the past year, they appear set to move on. O'Halloran believes Amari Cooper will be in play at No. 3 overall.

Jaguars third-year CB Dwayne Gratz is expected to be a backup in 2015.

The No. 64 overall pick in the 2013 draft is coming off a brutal sophomore season and is no higher than fourth on the depth chart behind projected outside starters Demetrius McCray and Davon House and top slot corner Aaron Colvin. Beat writer John Oehser wonders if Gratz could get some looks at safety.

Toby Gerhart is expected to be more of an H-back for the Jaguars this season.

Think of it more as a Mike Tolbert-type role. Gerhart could line up for some short-yardage work and catch a few passes out of the backfield. The Jaguars seem intent on keeping Gerhart on the roster to get some sort of return on investment.

Jaguars second-year CB Aaron Colvin is up to 197 pounds.

Colvin tipped the scales at 177 at last year's Combine following a torn ACL at the Senior Bowl and finished the season at 186. At 5-foot-11, he can carry the added weight. Colvin made six appearances at the end of last season after being activated from the reserve/NFI list. He has a chance to win the Jaguars' first-team slot cornerback job in training camp.
Apr 22 - 1:26 PM

Jaguars DT Sen'Derrick Marks (knee) said his target date for return is Week 1.

Marks tore his ACL in Week 17. The season opener would be the tail end of his 6-9 month recovery timetable, but expect the Jaguars to bring Marks along slowly as he's been their best defensive lineman the past two seasons. He's unlikely to play at all during the preseason and may miss most of training camp.

Blake Bortles worked on his mechanics with quarterback guru Tom House in the offseason.

House has a number of clients, including Tom Brady, Drew Brees, and Tim Tebow. "Tightening mechanics," Bortles said in explaining what House did for him. "Throwing with not just all arm, using the whole body and figuring out how to do that." Bortles has a laundry-list of things he needs to improve on in year two, and near the top of it is his mechanics. Coming off a shaky rookie season that drew Jake Locker, Josh Freeman, and Vince Young comps, the Jaguars are doing everything they can to improve Bortles' supporting cast.

Blake Bortles says he was "kind of fat" as a rookie.

Bortles was apparently tipping the scales at 250 by the end of the season after weighing 232 at last year's Combine. He's now down to 238, and says he's reduced his body fat from 17 to 10 percent. Conditioning is one of many things Bortles must improve on as a sophomore.

New Jaguars C Stefen Wisniewski says his recovery from January shoulder surgery is "going well."

Wisniewski is nearing the end of a five-month rehab. He'll be ready for training camp, and should participate in June's mandatory minicamp. Although Wisniewski says he'll have to compete for the Jaguars' center duties, the job is his.
Apr 21 - 1:14 PM

Marcedes Lewis has accepted a $4.15 million pay cut.

Lewis has missed 13 games over the last two seasons, is entering the final year of his contract and the Jags added Julius Thomas last month. So Lewis' only choice was to accept a hefty straight pay cut that saw his salary get slashed from $6.80 million to $2.65 million. He can earn $3 million back with unlikely playing-time incentives. The cap-rich Jags add $4.4 million in space with move and now have nearly $40 million to play with and/or roll over to next year.
Apr 20 - 9:18 AM

Denard Robinson (foot) was cleared to resume football activities in February.

Robinson sat out the final three games of 2014 with a torn ligament in his foot. Shoelace showed plus versatility when healthy, racking up 706 yards on 158 touches. Despite his emergence, Robinson is viewed by the Jaguars as a change-of-pace back. The Jags are likely to draft a running back. On the off chance they don't, Toby Gerhart and Storm Johnson will also be in the mix for carries.
Apr 19 - 8:52 AM

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny hopes to be back to his normal playing weight by training camp.

Posluszny's weight dropped to 223 after undergoing chest surgery, but he's already back up to 235 and should be close to his normal weight of 242 by the time camp opens. He will be someone to target in IDP leagues this season.
Apr 19 - 8:39 AM

Jaguars restructured the final year of TE Marcedes Lewis' contract.

No details are available, but the deal was not an extension and could very well be a straight pay cut. Lewis was set to make $6.65 million in base salary and count $8.2 million against the cap. The restructuring will help make room for newly-signed C Stefan Wisniewski. Following the deal, Lewis' spot on the roster is likely secure as the in-line complement to Julius Thomas.
Apr 18 - 1:48 PM

Jaguars signed C Stefen Wisniewski, formerly of the Raiders, to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

Recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, the deal is of the "prove it" variety after Wisniewski struggled to find the money he was looking for. Barely 26 and with four years of above-average tape already in hand, Wisniewski is a great bet to rehab his value and come back in a stronger negotiating position next offseason. Wisniewski should slide into center beside LG Zane Beadles and RG Brandon Linder with Luke Joeckel starting at left tackle and newly-signed Jermey Parnell holding down the right side. The Jags suddenly have the makings of a solid offensive line. After flirting with DeMarco Murray in free agency, expect Jacksonville to use an early-round draft pick at running back.
