Brad Meester, Dave Caldwell 'still talking about' possible 2013 return

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Meester, 35, is a free agent in 2013 and could mull retirement.

Center Brad Meester has played in and started 193 career games for the Jaguars, but whether or not he plays in No. 194 is still up in the air. At 35 years old, retirement is on the way for the Jaguars' second-round pick in the 2000 NFL Draft, although whether or not that comes during the 2013 offseason is still not known. On Friday, Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell told reporters that Meester's future with the team is still undecided.

"I talked to Brad briefly when I first got the job and his agent a little bit," Caldwell said of a possible return in 2013. "We're still talking about that. Brad has been a cornerstone of this franchise for so long and is a tremendous leader."

Meester signed a four-year, $10 million contract with the Jaguars following the 2008 NFL season, but that contract expired, making the veteran center a free agent in 2013.

His 193 career starts ranks in the NFL's top 100 most of all-time and only 25 of those players that have started more did so with the same team. In Meester's 13 seasons with the Jaguars, he played in all 16 games 10 times.
