Jacksonville Jaguars Around The Internets

We'll try every day to give you guys the news on the Jacksonville Jaguars around the internet. It's the off-season for us, so any and all Jaguars information is going to be at a premium. But as you know, you can find everything you need on Big Cat Country. I have no shame.

John’s introduction - Editorial on
Since a lot of us are just meeting, or at the least getting reacquainted, we'll start with a quick introduction. I'm John Oehser, new Senior Writer.

Stockpiling for the future without a CBA
Let’s assume for a second that the CBA negotiations don’t go very well and there is no agreement prior to draft day. On draft day there will have been no free agency and/or trades to acquire players. Draft day trades will only be allowed if the trades only involve picks.

Jaguars begin another push for tickets | ProFootballTalk
By any measure, Jacksonville’s "Team Teal" initiative was a big success in 2010. The team didn’t have any true sellouts but they reduced the number of blackouts from nine in 2009 to zero in 2010. The Florida Times-Union notes that the Jaguars began this week with 17,000 season-ticket holders after they had zero at this time last year. (Zero? Huh?)
