Jacksonville Jaguars should make a run at Josh Norman -
Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell had to be just as shocked as the rest of the football world Wednesday afternoon when the Carolina Panthers announced they were pulling the nonexclusive franchise tag from cornerback Josh Norman because they didn't believe they'd be able to work out a long-term deal. Then Caldwell should have smiled, picked up the phone, called Norman's agent, Michael George, and said, "Let's talk."
