Contract-year WR Allen Robinson says he's had extension talks with the Jaguars.

With Brandon Linder locked up, the Jags can turn their attention to their No. 1 receiver. It's an awkward time for Robinson, who is coming off a down season, but he's reasoning he still has plenty of leverage as a 24-year-old wideout (in August) just two years removed from a 1,400-yard season. If a deal doesn't get done this summer, the franchise tag looms for 2018. In a disaster scenario, A-Rob plays out his rookie deal and has another disappointing campaign, leaving him in Alshon Jeffery-esque limbo.

Jaguars signed G/C Brandon Linder to a five-year, $51.7 million extension through 2022.

It's one of the richest deals ever for a center. It includes $24 million guaranteed. It's actually been unclear if Linder would play center or guard in 2017, but the tea leaves have been suggesting the pivot, where Linder excelled in 2016. Linder played right guard in 2014-15. The No. 93 overall pick of the 2014 draft had been heading into the final year of his rookie deal.

Jaguars signed CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste.

An absolute mega-bust as the No. 58 overall pick of the 2014 draft, Jean-Baptiste hasn't appeared in a regular season game since his rookie year in New Orleans. He'll likely be amongst the first cuts in Jags camp.

Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey (core) will open training camp on the active/PUP list.

Ramsey is recovering from early June surgery. He'll be eased into training camp, but his regular season status isn't in doubt. The Jaguars also placed CB Aaron Colvin on PUP.

According to Mike Kaye of First Coast News, Jaguars DE Dante Fowler has at least 10 traffic tickets dating back to December 2015.

Since it was revealed he was arrested on Tuesday night for hitting a man, knocking off his glasses, stomping on the glasses, and taking the man's groceries and throwing them into a lake at an apartment complex all because the man criticized Fowler's driving, Kaye decided to dig into local court records. They revealed Fowler was once cited for driving 98 MPH in a 55 zone and another citation was for careless driving, causing $1,500 in property damage. Fowler could be subject to a suspension following his recent battery and criminal mischief charges.

Jaguars DE Dante Fowler was also arrested in March 2016 on charges of assault on an officer/EMT in Miami Beach.

Charges were later dropped, but Fowler's arrest on Tuesday night for simple battery and criminal mischief is his second run-in with the law in 16 months. His previous arrest could affect the way the courts handle this current one. Fowler has been a disappointment two years into the league, but he's still just 22.

Jaguars DE Dante Fowler was arrested on misdemeanor charges of simple battery and mischief in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Tuesday night.

Fowler allegedly got out of his car, hit a man, knocking off his glasses, and then stepped on them. The arrest comes exactly one month after DC Todd Wash said Fowler has "matured a lot" heading into his third year. Fowler was released early this morning on $650 bond. The former No. 3 overall pick missed all of 2015 with a torn ACL and recorded just four sacks last season while taking eight penalties.

Allen Robinson has been training with Randy Moss.

Robinson tweeted a video of himself doing agility drills with Moss coaching. Moss has also been mentoring Jamison Crowder and Terrelle Pryor. Robinson is coming off a down year but should benefit from playing under offensive-minded Doug Marrone. The Penn State alum is in the final year of his rookie deal.
Jul 14 - 3:51 PM

First Coast News' Mike Kaye believes Jaguars C/G Tyler Shatley could earn a starting job.

Brandon Linder and A.J. Cann are likely to take two of the interior spots, but there could be another job open if second-round rookie Cam Robinson is able to win the left tackle job -- Robinson will likely play left guard if he is unable to beat out Branden Albert. Shatley would make the most sense at center or right guard.
Jul 13 - 11:30 AM

Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey (core) could open training camp on the active/PUP list.

Ramsey is just under a month removed from core muscle surgery. He was cleared for running in late June, but the Jaguars are likely to ease him into camp. Ramsey's regular season status isn't in doubt.

The Florida Times Union's Ryan O'Halloran believes this summer is third-year DT Michael Bennett's last chance to impress the team.

Bennett appeared in 13 games as a rookie but missed all of last season due to a calf injury. A favorite of the draft community coming out of Ohio State thanks to his motor and high effort, Bennett needs to stay healthy to win a backup job in a defense that is flush with talent. Bennett is a pure 4-3 three-technique.
Jul 7 - 10:25 AM

The Florida Times Union expects Jaguars C/G Brandon Linder to use Raiders RG Gabe Jackson's new five-year, $56 million extension as a baseline in contract negotiations.

Linder earned PFF's No. 6 center grade last year and was selected just 12 spots after Jackson in the 2014 draft. The 25-year-old will earn a modest $702,000 in the final year of his rookie deal. Locking Linder up long-term shouldn't be a major stumbling block for the Jags, who have over $45 million in cap space.
Jul 2 - 9:09 AM

Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey (groin) has already progressed to running this week.

Ramsey needed core muscle surgery less than two weeks ago. He should be back to 100 percent for training camp. Ramsey, even after a strong rookie season, is a big candidate to take another step forward in Year 2.

Jaguars claimed OL Demetrius Rhaney off waivers from the Rams.

Rhaney can back up at multiple spots on the offensive line, but was limited to special teams last year. He'll give Jacksonville some end-of-the roster depth going into training camp.
Jun 21 - 5:24 PM

Rams waived C/G Demetrius Rhaney.

A seventh-round pick in 2014, Rhaney saw some spot action two seasons ago, but he was primarily a special teams contributor. Getting cut at this point in the offseason is not a great sign, but perhaps Rhaney latches on with another team before camp.
