The Jaguars have announced a new half-price season ticket for children ages 12 and under. Youth season tickets are available for the 2012 season in the Family Fun Zone (Section 227) of EverBank Field and in any Touchdown Club seat section. Each child ticket purchase requires proof of age (copy of birth certificate to be sent into the Jaguars ticket office) at the time of purchase and must be purchased with at least one contiguous full-price adult ticket.
NFL brain trusts hunkered down over the weekend all across the league, preparing for Tuesday. For some teams that meant madly clearing cap space. For the Jaguars it meant formulating plans on how to use their more than $45 million of cap space, which is among the most in the NFL. NFL free agency begins at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, and the Jaguars head into it with very clear needs and a few things left to do before the market opens.
Sports Illustrated's Peter King thinks very highly of Jaguars players about to hit the market as pending free agents. He ranked Jaguars defensive end Jeremy Mincey as the eighth best available free agent and Jaguars safety Dwight Lowery as the 32nd best available free agent. Perhaps more significant is this: Mincey is King's highest-ranked defensive end not named Mario Williams and Lowery is the top safety, only one of two on King's list.
Derek Cox never really understood the label. As Cox sees it, in the NFL a cornerback is a cornerback and if you can cover you can cover. So, to have a label other than that is something he never really grasped. So, call Cox what you want, but if you’re thinking he’s a very good No. 2 corner and not a No. 1, just know that Cox sees things differently.
