The NFL free agency period officially gets started at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, meaning all these rumored deals can officially put pen to paper and officially be officially official. Okay. The Jacksonville Jaguars are expected to sign a slew of players on Tuesday afternoon, including the likes of Julius Thomas, Jared Odrick, Jermey Parnell and Dan Skuta.
That won't be all they do, however.
Sources tell me the Jaguars are expected to announce multiple players on Tuesday and/or Wednesday that they've signed, but some of the names haven't even been floated about in the media connected to the Jaguars. We'll make sure to keep you updated with that news when it happens.
12:22 AM: One of the top pass rushers on the free agency market, Jason Worilds, is retiring from football.
Per agent @JB_XAM, Jason Worilds says " I have chosen to step away from football as I have opted to pursue other interests." Wow.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 11, 2015
7:35 PM: Jaguars are giving the full court press for Murray.
#Jaguars coaches and players making their pitch to DeMarco Murray, per league source.— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) March 10, 2015
7:29 PM: Ian Rapoport reports that it appears to be a three-team race for Murray, between the Cowboys, Raiders and Jaguars.
6:27 PM: Mike Garafolo on Fox Sports says it's more likely that Oakland or Jacksonville end up with Demarco Murray than the Eagles.
6:12 PM: Thanks for the memories, J.T.
5:07 PM: Eagles gonna Eagles.
Per Adam Caplan of ESPN, there is mutual interest with the #Eagles and DeMarco Murray.— Eliot Shorr-Parks (@EliotShorrParks) March 10, 2015
5:03 PM: Well, that could be why the Miami Dolphins beat out the Jaguars for Ndamukong Suh.
Sources in Miami tell me that Ndamukong Suh will receive 60 million guaranteed over the contract. ALL OF IT WILL BE PAID THIS YEAR.— Dianna Marie Russini (@NBCdianna) March 10, 2015
4:51 PM: STOP IT.
4:27 PM: Jaguars gonna make a great defensive line even better? Okay then.
Thought Jared Odrick was getting $7M per year from #Jaguars. It’s actually $8.5M per year with $22M guaranteed.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 10, 2015
4:25 PM: Looks like the Sergio Brown signing is official. Nice under-the-radar free safety pickup.
4:10 PM: Julius Thomas is officially a member of the Jaguars. Looks like he got $24M guaranteed.
The #Jaguars are paying TE Julius Thomas an average of $9.2M over 5 years, I’m told. $24M guaranteed.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 10, 2015
12:54 PM: Indianapolis Colts free safety Sergio Brown is coming to the Jaguars, according to FOX Sports.
S Sergio Brown expected to agree to a deal with the Jaguars today, sources say. #2ClapsAndARicFlair— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) March 10, 2015
12:14 PM: All of the offensive lineman depth.
Jaguars have re-signed exclusive rights FA RT Austin Pasztor.— John Oehser (@JohnOehser) March 10, 2015
11:12 AM: And the Jaguars have reportedly added another free agent, signing Green Bay Packers cornerback Davon House.
10:54 AM: We thought Ron Parker could be a target after Devin McCourty re-signed with the New England Patriots. Now the Philadelphia Eagles are interested? No. Just no.
10:14 AM: Well, it looks like it's a three-horse race for DeMarco Murray... that is, if the Cowboys don't turn heel.
8:04 AM: Keeps sounding more and more like the Jaguars are in on DeMarco Murray.
7:20 AM: The Cowboys done messed up.
Now we know why DeMarco Murray has deleted Cowboys' references on his Twitter account: team has not called him since last week, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 10, 2015
7:08 AM: The feeling now seems to be that teams have priced Demarco Murray out of returning to the Dallas Cowboys, but it's not just the Jaguars in the running. Some other teams could step up to the plate, but everything I've heard from my people is that Murray and the Jaguars could be a reality sometime this week.
