Exit interview: Will Blackmon talks about his time with the Jaguars -
Will Blackmon enjoyed a memorable two years playing cornerback for the Jaguars. Blackmon was signed shortly before the final preseason game of the 2013 season. He had been out of football for the entire 2012 season recovering from a knee injury after playing for the Green Bay Packers (2006-09) and New York Giants (2010-11). Seattle signed him in February of 2013, and then released him in the final wave of cuts leading to the Jaguars signing him.

Could the Jaguars make a Draft Day trade with the Eagles? -
As we get closer to the NFL Draft, there has been quite a bit of talk about the Philadelphia Eagles trading up into the Top 5 in order to pick quarterback Marcus Mariota. One of the most recent rumors involved the Eagles trading up to the No. 4 overall pick and including veteran running back LeSean McCoy in the deal, who it seems the Eagles are ready to part with.

Hiring John Idzik won't hurt -
The Jacksonville Jaguars have plucked former New York Jets general manager John Idzik off of the NFL unemployment line. After just two years on the job, Idzik was fired by New York after littering the Jets’ roster with terrible draft picks like Dee Milliner and Geno Smith, and disappointing free agent signings like Mike Vick and Chris Johnson.

Jacksonville Jaguars free agency preview for 2015 -

Entering their third year in town, the staff looks to put together a roster that can contend in the division. With emerging young receivers -- Denard Robinson, Allen Hurns and Justin Blackmon (if he's not cut) -- expect Cecil Shorts to hit the open market.
