Jaguars re-signed restricted free agent G/C Tyler Shatley to a two-year contract.

A fourth-year player who's bounced around practice squads, Shatley made the first four starts of his career last year, struggling mightily according to PFF's grades. Shatley's ability to play both guard positions and center does give him reserve "swing" value. He should still have to fight for his roster spot.

Jaguars re-signed G/T Josh Wells.

Wells began last season on injured reserve before logging 11 snaps down the stretch. The undrafted James Madison alum gives Jacksonville depth at both guard and tackle.
Feb 17 - 4:50 PM

The Jaguars and Chad Henne have agreed to a restructured contract.

In all likelihood, Henne took a pay cut. He was initially scheduled to earn a non-guaranteed $3 million salary in the final year of his deal. Henne hasn't been asked to throw a pass in almost three full calendar years.

Jaguars re-signed WR Arrelious Benn to a one-year contract.

It comes with a second-year option. Benn has seemingly been in the league for decades, but is still somehow just 28 years old. He played just 101 snaps on offense last season, catching 5-of-10 targets for 116 yards and one touchdown. Benn sees most of his action on kick and punt coverage.

Jaguars re-signed NT Abry Jones to a four-year, $16 million contract.

Multiple reports had the deal being hammered out on Tuesday, but it's now final. Jones is a 25-year-old former UDFA out of Georgia who is clearly on the rise in Jacksonville. He became a fixture in the defensive line rotation at the end of September and was a key member of an underrated run defense. Despite playing just 463 snaps, which is 300-500 fewer than most starting defensive tackles, Jones was PFF's No. 10 interior lineman against the run out of 73 qualifiers. Jones' emergence will likely make DT Roy Miller expendable.

The Florida Times Union reports the Jaguars are closing in on an extension with free agent DT Abry Jones.

The situational lineman took a big step forward as a run stuffer in 2016. The former UDFA was playing under a second-round tender as a restricted free agent. Jones turned 25 in September.
Feb 14 - 3:05 PM

The Florida Times Union believes impending free agent CB Prince Amukamara will command $8-9 million annually.

Amukamara settled for a one-year, $5 million deal last offseason but rebuilt his value after playing well and mostly staying healthy in 2016. The Jaguars recently brought in Amukamara's former Giants coach Tom Coughlin as executive vice president. Former Giants DC Perry Fewell was also hired as DBs coach. Perhaps those moves will convince Amukamara to stay in Jacksonville.

ESPN's Mike DiRocco reports the Jaguars want to re-sign impending free agent CB Prince Amukamara.

Signed to a one-year, $5 million deal last offseason, Amukamara played well over 871 defensive snaps and established himself as the starter opposite Jalen Ramsey over the second half of the season. He will cost more to retain on a long-term deal this time around, but the Jags have ample cap space to keep him.

Free agent SS Johnathan Cyprien is expected to test the open market.

Cyprien put together one of his better seasons, starting all 16 games and finishing with 127 tackles. The addition of Tashaun Gipson allowed him to play closer to the line of scrimmage and support the run. A 2013 second round pick, Cyprien is entering the prime of his career but might not have a huge market as a box safety. The Jaguars "haven't closed the door" on bringing him back.

According to ESPN Jaguars reporter Mike DiRocco, the team "really like(s)" Aaron Colvin inside as the slot corner.

Colvin (6'/194) is entering the final year of his rookie deal after being a fourth-rounder in 2014. The Jaguars got him as a draft-day steal after Colvin tore his ACL at Oklahoma. He played just 292 snaps in 2016 following a four-game suspension and season-ending ankle injury but did receive plus marks for his coverage from Pro Football Focus. With Jalen Ramsey outside and Colvin inside, cornerback isn't as big of a need for the Jaguars as offensive line and pass rush.

Jaguars hired Scott Milanovich as QB coach.

Milanovich has spent the last five years as head coach of the CFL's Toronto Argonauts. He was a backup quarterback for the Bucs in the mid-90s but doesn't have any NFL coaching experience. It's an out-of-the-box hire at one of Jacksonville's most important positions. Milanovich will be tasked with reviving the career of Blake Bortles, who regressed mightily in his third season.
Jan 27 - 7:25 PM

Jaguars GM David Caldwell believes the team "can win a Super Bowl" with Blake Bortles at quarterback.

Let the Bortles reclamation project commence. "I think the future is bright for him," Caldwell said. "I have a lot of confidence in him. I know he has the makeup in terms of intelligence, competitiveness, hard work, effort, so if he has those things I think the rest of it will come." Caldwell did add Bortles "needs to improve" to reach that goal, which seems like an understatement given what he put on tape in 2016, but he is still a young quarterback who had a solid season as a sophomore. These comments plus EVP Tom Coughlin calling Bortles "our quarterback" suggest the Jaguars will pick up his fifth-year option this spring.

Jaguars hired Keenan McCardell as WRs coach.

It's a reunion after McCardell spent most of his playing career in Jacksonville. McCardell had a previous stint as Washington's receivers coach, but hasn't been in the NFL since 2011. He's another hire with strong ties to EVP Tom Coughlin. McCardell will look to turn the careers of Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns after down seasons.
Jan 20 - 6:24 PM

Ex-NFL WR Keenan McCardell is interviewing for the position of Jaguars WRs coach.

He played six years in Jacksonville under Tom Coughlin, who recently joined the Jaguars' front office. McCardell spent two years as the Redskins' WRs coach and another two in the same position at the University of Maryland. If he gets the job, McCardell will be tasked with reviving Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns, who regressed last year following breakout 2015 campaigns.
Jan 20 - 3:15 PM

Jaguars hired Nathaniel Hackett as offensive coordinator.

Hackett's job was in question after the Jaguars brought in Chip Kelly for an interview. Jacksonville showed little improvement with Hackett, but he'll remain their coordinator after finishing out the final nine games. The Jaguars should be more of a run-balanced team under Hackett in 2017.
