Paul Posluszny couldn’t be more optimistic about his long-term future. As for the short-term, Posluszny – the Jaguars’ middle linebacker and leading tackler last season – said although he doesn’t know exactly when he will be allowed to practice, he’s not ruling out that happening during the next few months.

With the explosion of the tight end position in recent years, it behooves teams to focus on making their tight ends an important aspect of their offense.

Wow, it's been forever since I've dropped in here, but here I am. Frankly, today is an oddly depressing day. Football is over, yet there's contradictions in east-central Indiana (*that's where I live*). First of all, the weather is ridiculously good for early February in Indiana. Right now, it's 45 degrees and sunny at a time of the year that normally produces 20 degree highs with snow and ice. Strange. In Jacksonville, that feeling is especially strange. Once again, the season has closed with no peep from the Jaguars in the post-season. Yeah, that's a depressing thought, but the Jaguars also have a new sense of optimism moving forward.
