Jaguars GM David Caldwell said the team has made "no decision" on picking up DE Dante Fowler's 2019 option.

Fowler's option is worth $14.2 million in 2019, nearly four times the amount of his base salary this upcoming season. He recorded eight sacks on 464 snaps last season but has battled numerous off-field issues including multiple arrests. He's facing potential league discipline for his most recent charges stemming from his July 2017 arrest.
Apr 20 - 12:36 PM

Jaguars acquired QB Cody Kessler from the Browns in exchange for a conditional 2019 seventh-round pick.

Kessler replaces Chad Henne, who signed with the Chiefs, as Blake Bortles' current backup. Kessler was decent as a 2016 rookie starter across eight games, managing the offense and completing over 65% of his passes with a 6:2 TD:INT mark. However, he's reached his ceiling as an in-a-pinch No. 2.
Mar 28 - 2:39 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Browns are expected to shop 2016 third-round QB Cody Kessler.

This was the expected outcome after the Browns traded for Tyrod Taylor, signed Drew Stanton, and are expected to draft a quarterback No. 1 overall. Perhaps Cleveland can turn Kessler into a late-round, conditional pick. Kessler completed 65.6 percent of his throws with a 6-to-2 TD-to-INT ratio in eight starts as a rookie.
Mar 27 - 11:44 AM

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said Blake Bortles (wrist) is training "pain-free."

Marrone added Bortles is working with "no limitations." The quarterback said he would be ready to go for OTAs, and it appears as if he is on track to fulfill that promise. Bortles was given a three-year, $54 million extension last month.
Mar 27 - 9:16 AM

Jaguars re-signed RB Corey Grant to a one-year, $2.914 million contract.

Jacksonville all but guaranteed Grant would stick around by hitting the restricted free agent with a second-round tender, which he has now signed. Grant has been explosive on limited touches throughout his career, and he could get more looks this season with Chris Ivory out the door.
Mar 22 - 8:35 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Donte Moncrief's one-year, $9.6 million contract with the Jaguars is fully guaranteed.

It is an impressive chunk of change for a player who has managed just 56 catches for 698 yards over 21 games the last two years. He will not be 25 until August, however, and has an impressive skill set. Jacksonville is clearly betting on Moncrief reaching his potential this season. Reading into contract information can be a bad idea, but this deal suggests the Jaguars plan for Moncrief to start.
Mar 19 - 11:36 AM

Jaguars re-signed DE Lerentee McCray to a one-year contract.

The deal comes with a second-year option for 2019. A core special teamer, McCray saw just 21 snaps on defense last year.
Mar 16 - 2:19 PM

Jaguars signed TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins to a two-year contract.

In his first full year of sobriety, Seferian-Jenkins overcame alcohol problems to emerge as the Jets' starting tight end last season, providing a safety valve for Josh McCown over the middle and in the red zone. ASJ did not quite show his old explosiveness from college, however, averaging fewer than eight yards per catch. He also had multiple touchdowns negated due to penalties and replay overturns. Only 25 years old, Seferian-Jenkins has upside for significantly more in a suddenly loaded Jaguars pass-catcher corps.
Mar 15 - 4:54 PM

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports free agent Austin Seferian-Jenkins is visiting the Jaguars on Thursday.

ASJ visited the Seahawks on Wednesday, but he left without a deal. Eric Ebron's somewhat surprising entrance into the tight end market hurts Seferian-Jenkins' stock somewhat, but he is still one of the best options available. Jacksonville did already add Niles Paul, but they could use more help at the position.
Mar 15 - 10:28 AM

Jaguars signed S Cody Davis, formerly of the Rams.

Davis excelled on special teams for Los Angeles and also made a handful of spot starts at free safety. He'll add depth behind Jaguars FS Tashaun Gipson.
Mar 14 - 5:30 PM

Jaguars signed TE Niles Paul, formerly of the Redskins, to a two-year, $8.75 million contract.

At one point viewed as an on-the-rise prospect, Paul hasn't been the same since missing 2015 with a dislocated ankle. Going on 29, he has just 15 receptions since catching 39 balls in 2014. He's a body for the Jaguars' tight end room.
Mar 14 - 3:42 PM

Jaguars agreed to terms with S Don Carey, formerly of the Lions.

This spells an end to Carey's seven-year run in Detroit. It's a homecoming of sorts for Carey, who played with Jacksonville from 2009-10. A core special teamer, Carey is still working back from a knee injury he suffered at the end of last season.
Mar 14 - 3:09 PM

Free agent Austin Seferian-Jenkins is visiting the Seahawks.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the Jaguars will also host ASJ on a visit. Seferian-Jenkins was born and raised in Washington and played his college ball for the Huskies. After losing Jimmy Graham to the Packers and Luke Willson also a free agent, tight end is a huge need for the Seahawks. The Falcons and Saints have also been linked to Seferian-Jenkins this week.
Mar 14 - 1:02 PM

Jaguars agreed to terms with CB D.J. Hayden, formerly of the Lions, on a three-year, $19 million contract.

He'll replace Aaron Colvin as the Jaguars' slot corner after Colvin left for the Texans on Tuesday. Hayden played 488 snaps last season in his lone year with Detroit and graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 89 cover corner out of 121 qualifiers. He'll be the weak link in the Jaguars' secondary, but the sum of its parts will likely mask ex-first-rounder Hayden's deficiencies.
Mar 14 - 9:20 AM

Jaguars agreed to terms with WR Donte Moncrief, formerly of the Colts.

Even with Allen Robinson gone, Moncrief is joining a crowded receiver corps that now includes Marqise Lee, Keelan Cole, Allen Hurns and Dede Westrbook in addition to Moncrief. Perhaps Hurns is still a candidate for release. Of course, coming off back-to-back lost seasons, Moncrief is essentially a flier. Working in Moncrief's favor is his youth (25 in August) and still quite projectable skill-set. From a fantasy perspective, it's hard to see how Moncrief makes an impact in a run-first offense with Blake Bortles at quarterback.
