Fabulous Four: Deep in the Dead Zone

We lead this Deep-in-the-Dead-Zone, looking-high-and-low-for-angles Fabulous Four with a thought on a news item that may have gotten lost if you weren’t paying attention – that is, the signing of rookie right tackle Luke Joeckel. As expected, the Jaguars and Joeckel reached an agreement Saturday, and Joeckel signed his contract that night before heading to the NFL’s Rookie Symposium. The news came four days after cornerback Dwayne Gratz and safety Johnathan Cyprien signed their rookie contracts, and the lack of fanfare around all of the signings provided further evidence that any teeth-gnashing over the pace at which the Jaguars have signed draft picks this offseason is energy and time wasted.

Jaguars' Maurice Jones-Drew says foot 'feels great' -

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew told reporters earlier this month that he has the body of a 23-year-old. Despite questions over his ongoing recovery from season-ending Lisfranc surgery, MJD is confident he'll be ready for the campaign. "The foot feels great," he told The Florida Times-Union on Monday during his celebrity golf tournament in St. Augustine, Fla. Jones-Drew later returned to Miami, where he continues to rehab the foot, which he said will be healed in time for next month's training camp.
