The Jacksonville Jaguars are going to work out punters today, as they told us they would during Jack Del Rio's Monday afternoon press conference. According to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post via Twitter, we now know who the punters are they may be working out.

Among the top free agent punters rumored to be on Jaguars' radar: Nick Harris and Matt Dodge.

Nick Harris was cut in the Detroit Lions cut down to get to 53 players. He spent eight seasons punting for the Lions averaging 43.2 yards per punt. He also spent the first two years of his career with the Cincinnati Bengals. Matt Dodge on the other hand, was drafted by the New York Giants in the 7th round out of East Carolina. Dodge punted for the Giants all last season, but lost his job to Steve Weatherford in the preseason. Last year Dodge averaged 44.8 yards per punt with a 34.3 net average.
