Here's your Friday morning news roundup for the Jacksonville Jaguars!

Packers to let Randall Cobb test market -
The Green Bay Packers have plenty of cap space after releasing A.J. Hawk and Brad Jones. That doesn't mean GM Ted Thompson is about to deviate from his frugal, long-term approach to team building, however. According to Jason La Canfora, the Packers believe Randall Cobb's market is "likely to get out of hand" and have focused their efforts on retaining other key free agents.

Jaguars cut Will Blackmon -
Blackmon originally caught on with the Jaguars in the 2013 season, after he was released by the Seattle Seahawks. He made an instant impact with the team as a nickel corner, even filling in on the outside due to some injuries and earned himself a new two-year deal last offseason.

Former Jets GM John Idzik joins Jaguars -
Former Jets general manager John Idzik, who was fired after just two seasons on the job in New York, has finally found a new place to work. Idzik has been hired as a consultant for the Jaguars, according to sources. Idzik will begin working for the Jaguars in March.
