Here's all your Tuesday news for the Jacksonville Jaguars as they head into another week of the offseason.

Jaguars expect to know Justin Blackmon's status by NFL Draft -
Jacksonville Jaguars fans are once again asking senior writer John Oehser for an update on former Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon. The former first-round draft pick was suspended the entire 2013-14 NFL season, but may be reinstated to play next season.

"Jaguars General Manager David Caldwell said he hopes to know something regarding Blackmon’s status before the NFL Draft on April 30," Oehser writes. "That’s two and a half months away. While I understand people’s overwhelming desire to know something on this front, there’s really not a terrific hurry for the Jaguars to know Blackmon’s status."

Ken Whisenhunt should relinquish play-calling duties for Titans - Music City Miracles
Multiple sources are reporting today that Green Bay Packers head coach, Mike McCarthy, is going to relinquish the play calling duties to his offensive coordinator, Tom Clements.

This is the sign of a good leader. One can assume that McCarthy knows there are some things that he is not able to be on top of during a game while he is calling the plays. He gives up the actual play call, but you can bet that he will still have input to what is called at various points in a game.

Ken Whisenhunt should be paying attention to what is going on in Green Bay. Whisenhunt, who also calls the plays as the head coach, definitely did not lead his team to points scored crown. In fact, his team was 30th in the league in scoring.
