ESPN’s Mike DiRocco expects Jacksonville to re-sign free agent Chad Henne.

The Jaguars don’t need Henne, but have the cap room to keep him as a veteran backup. Henne could return on a two-year deal in the $6 million range.

Coach Gus Bradley wants to re-sign free agent TE Marcedes Lewis.

Lewis was reduced to a blocking role last year, failing to score a touchdown for the first time since 2011. The Jaguars want to keep him as their No. 2 tight end behind injury-prone starter Julius Thomas. Lewis shouldn’t require much more than the $2.65 million salary he made in 2015.

Allen Hurns (thigh) expects to resume running in a month.

Jaguars owner Shad Khan said a winning record is "everybody’s reasonable expectation at this point."

Coach Gus Bradley was handed a one-year extension in January, but there is little doubt he will be out the door if the Jaguars suffer through another losing season. A former defensive coordinator, Bradley will need to improve a defense which has finished bottom 10 in total defense and points allowed in each of the last three seasons if he hopes to keep his job. Bradley fired former DC Bob Babich after the season and is expected to take on a bigger role on defense.

Jaguars OC Greg Olson said the team is "going to accelerate" Blake Bortles' development.

"You need to make sure [the offense] is tailored to fit the quarterback if you believe it’s your guy, if it’s not a turnstile," Olson said. "We’re comfortable with Blake Bortles. We’re going to accelerate his development." Bortles took a huge jump in Olson's first year as coordinator, throwing for 4,428 yards and 35 touchdowns. Despite the growth, Bortles also tossed 18 interceptions, took 51 sacks and completed under 59 percent of his passes. There is still plenty of room for Bortles to improve, and he has the weapons around him to make the jump. Despite some likely touchdown regression, Bortles will be an upside QB1 selection next season.

New Jaguars DC Todd Wash said he will play second-year DE Dante Fowler (ACL) in several positions next season.

Fowler's season ended before it started when he tore is ACL the first day of rookie minicamp, but the Jaguars still have big plans for the No. 3 overall pick. "We have to make sure that we put him in position to be successful, not just standing up out there or putting his hand down," Wash said. "He’s a phenomenal athlete and player. He’s working hard to get back to where he was. We just [have] to put him in position to show those talents." The only positive of Fowler's early injury is he should be close to 100 percent by the time the offseason program begins. Fowler will hope to jump-start a pass rush which recorded just 36 sacks in 2015.

Jaguars hired ex-Lions S Daniel Bullocks as assistant DBs coach.

Bullocks, 33, was the 40th overall pick in the 2006 draft and part of ex-Lions GM Matt Millen's god-awful draft history. Bullocks played just 31 career games before knee injuries, particularly microfracture surgery, shut him down for good.

Jaguars signed coach Gus Bradley to a one-year extension through 2017.

Just two weeks ago, GM Dave Gettleman said Bradley wouldn't be seeing an extension anytime in the immediate future. But we're not sure this is what he meant. Bradley is simply getting an extra year added to his deal to not make him feel like a lame-duck coach who's working on a one-year deal in 2016. It's still shaping up as a make-or-break year for Bradley. He needs to win more than 4-5 games after going 12-36 across his first three seasons.

Jaguars promoted DL coach Todd Wash to defensive coordinator.

The Jags struck out on all their veteran candidates, leaving them to hire from within. Promoting Wash is a sure sign coach Gus Bradley is planning to take on a bigger role in defensive play-calling as he prepares for a make-or-break season. Wash has coached alongside Bradley for over a decade.
Jan 21 - 4:03 PM

The Florida Times-Union reports Jaguars DL coach Todd Wash is "the leading candidate" to land the team's defensive coordinator position.

The Jaguars interviewed Jim Schwartz for the position, but he landed in Philadelphia. With Schwartz out of the picture, coach Gus Bradley will likely take on a bigger role on defense, allowing Jacksonville to hire an inexperienced coordinator. Wash, Falcons DBs coach Marquand Manuel and ex-Dolphins interim DC Lou Anarumo all fit the bill. The Jags are expected to make their decision by this weekend.

Allen Hurns will have surgery to repair a sports hernia Tuesday.

The surgery was reportedly going to happen last week, but the delay will not hurt Hurns' chances of being ready for the offseason program. He will be 100 percent by the time training camp rolls around. With the Jaguars offense still on the upswing, there is room for improvement on Hurns' 64/1,031/10 breakout campaign.

Jaguars DT Sen'Derrick Marks (triceps) expects to be a full participant for OTAs.

Marks' recovery from triceps surgery is going well and the hope is that he'll be back to full strength by April. He had his brace removed last week and began "activating" his triceps on Wednesday. Marks suffered a season-ending triceps tear in only his fourth game back after missing the first five games of 2015 while recovering from a torn ACL. If -- and it's a fairly big if -- the Jags can get Marks healthy and Dante Fowler to play at the form he was supposed to coming out of Florida, Jacksonville's pass rush could turn around in a hurry.

Jaguars OL coach Doug Marrone interviewed for the Titans' head-coaching vacancy on Thursday.

Per reporter Terry McCormick, Marrone made a "good impression." Marrone was supposedly going to be a hot commodity this offseason, but most teams quickly passed. In Tennessee he's vying with interim coach Mike Mularkey, who is viewed as the heavy favorite to keep his job. Marrone could regret walking out on the Bills for the rest of his career.

Titans requested to interview Jaguars assistant head coach Doug Marrone.

His agent deserves a raise. Despite earning a bad reputation in Buffalo and quitting on the team, Marrone has now interviewed for four head-coaching gigs. He may not land any of them, but it certainly appears Marrone is still well-regarded in front offices around the league. His former players have a different opinion.
Jan 9 - 9:34 AM

Sources tell the Cleveland Plain Dealer that some Browns players are "concerned" about the possibility of Jaguars OL coach Doug Marrone replacing Mike Pettine.

Marrone earned a miserable reputation during his two years in Buffalo, something highlighted by the fact that he couldn't even get a coordinating job after quitting on his team following last season. Bills players openly celebrated his resignation, and derided him as having too much of a college mindset. However, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Marrone is a big believer in analytics. The Browns are going all in on numbers this offseason. They'll have to decide if Marrone's apparent lack of human touch is worth it.
