Jacksonville Jaguars Roundup

ProFootballWeekly.com - Florence will play big role in Broncos' 'D'

he timing of CB Drew Coleman’s release from the Jaguars seems a bit curious, as there would have been no harm in keeping the six-year veteran around to compete in training camp as the club monitors the rehab process of Rashean Mathis. But our sources indicate GM Gene Smith and Co. wanted to give Coleman the best opportunity to catch on elsewhere, and the roster talent has improved to the point where he became expendable. Still, the move has to be considered a risk given Mathis, 31, is coming off a torn ACL in his left knee, and the club does not have a lot of proven commodities after Mathis, Derek Cox (who is also coming off a season-ending knee injury) and free-agent acquisition Aaron Ross.

Fabulous Four

We’ll spend this week’s Fabulous Four with an eye on next week’s start of the Jaguars’ 2012 organized team activities – as good a time as any for a roster assessment. With all of the draft and much of free agency behind us, the roster is basically set – and if there was any doubt the Jaguars like where they are, it ended precisely two weeks ago. That was the day the Jaguars selected punter Bryan Anger in the third round, a move later criticized by many.

Paul Kuharsky: Themes emerge for teams and get revisited. Blaine Gabbert needs to be better for the Jaguars in 2012 for them to get any better. It’s hard not to hit on that regularly. Similarly, the choice of a punter such as Bryan Anger in the third round remains a conversation topic. I field questions about it. It comes up in draft review.
