The Jacksonville Jaguars appear to be locked into signing free agent tight end Julius Thomas when the clock strikes 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, when free agency officially begins. It seems as though the Jaguars have had that worked out for quite a while, because there was a quick downturn in other suitors for Thomas.
In other news, the Jaguars appear to be making a big time push for running back Demarco Murray and are one of the teams interested in signing offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga. If the Jags can swing Thomas, Murray and Bulaga, boy what a haul that would be on the offensive side of the ball. Missing out on a veteran receiver won't be that big of a deal if you land all three of those.
10:42 PM: Looks like the Jaguars have another signing in the bag, this time linebacker Dan Skuta.
9:39 PM: Oh.
Hear the same thing about #Jaguars in FA as I did while they searched for coaches: Things have changed. People want to go there now.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 10, 2015
8:38 PM: It appears that Julius Thomas to the Jaguars is unofficially official.
7:43 PM: Even with rumors of the Seahawks making a push for Julius Thomas, appears Jaguars are prepared to over pay to get their guy.
7:35 PM: According to Jason Cole, the Jaguars are one of five teams who'd be interested in Greg Hardy.
3:31 PM: Encouraging news still coming out about Julius Thomas.
2:28 PM: Looks like if the Jaguars want Demarco Murray, and it seems that they're pushing for him, they'll need to pay roughly $8 million per year.
Sounds like DeMarco Murray's camp is confident there are teams willing to pay $8M per year for his services. Will the #Cowboys step up?— Rand Getlin (@Rand_Getlin) March 9, 2015
1:39 PM: Little late on getting the official stories up, but the Jaguars will be signing Jared Odrick and Jermey Pernell officially tomorrow.
1:32 PM: The market for Davon House is heating up and the Jaguars are involved. Makes the CB position interesting.
11:16 AM: The Jaguars and free agent defensive lineman Jared Odrick have reportedly come to terms on a contract. Boom.
11:15 AM: General manager Dave Caldwell never even pursued Bryan Bulaga, surprisingly, and wanted Jermey Parnell all along. Interesting.
Was told by a league source that #Jaguars never had interest in OT Bryan Bulaga. After Jermey Parnell all along.— Michael DiRocco (@ESPNdirocco) March 9, 2015
10:41 AM: It looks like the Jaguars have Dallas Cowboys swing tackle Jermey Parnell all wrapped up. Let's do this.
10:32 AM: With Ndamukong Suh likely heading to the Miami Dolphins, the Jaguars are reportedly turning their attention to Jared Odrick.

6:46 AM: Looks like another top free agent won't be leaving their current team, as pass rusher Jerry Hughes stays with the Buffalo Bills.
The #Bills and Jerry Hughes have agreed to terms on a 5 -year contract, according to an NFL source.— Vic Carucci (@viccarucci) March 9, 2015
