One of the Jaguars’ most productive and durable players is entering the last year of his contract, but linebacker Daryl Smith has no intention of making an issue over getting an extension. "Of course, I want to get it done, but I don’t spend a whole lot of time thinking about it," said Smith, who signed a $25 million extension back in 2007. "I’d like to finish up my career in Jacksonville, but I understand it’s a business decision. Everything will work out, I’m not stressing about it."
Brian Robiskie likes where he is now. When he says that, he doesn’t just mean Jacksonville, although Robiskie said he likes a lot about an organization that has changed fairly dramatically since he arrived six months ago. He doesn’t even just mean his spot in the Jaguars’ wide receiver rotation, which is something he said he knows will be determined in the coming weeks and months.
The Jacksonville Jaguars signed 2012 sixth-round draft pick Mike Harris to a contract today. Harris was the 176th overall selection in the 2012 NFL Draft and is the second of the Jaguars’ six draft picks to sign a contract. Length and terms of the contract are undisclosed. Harris, a 5-10, 184-pound cornerback, played his final two college seasons at Florida State. In his senior year for the Seminoles, Harris finished second on the team with 58 tackles (43 solo). He played in all 13 games as part of a three-man rotation in the defensive backfield, including time at nickel back.
The weather remains a factor, but as Jaguars Head Coach Mike Mularkey sees it, the work has won out, anyway. The Jaguars Thursday afternoon worked for about 45 minutes on the Florida Blue Health and Wellness Practice Fields before lightning forced them to finish the ninth practice of 2012 organized team activities on an upper level inside EverBank Field. It was the second time in three days weather has forced the Jaguars inside. They moved the entire practice inside Tuesday.
