Jacksonville Jaguars general manager David Caldwell is scheduled to have a Draft Luncheon meeting with local media at noon on Friday, but he stopped by the radio studio to sit in on "Jaguars Today" on 1010XL and addressed some of the speculation surrounding free agent cornerback Josh Norman, advising that team it has "continued interest" in the player.

The numbers for Norman are obviously going to be the big thing, because that was the sticking point with Norman and why the Carolina Panthers rescinded the franchise tag. It's been rumored Norman is seeking something in the $14-16 million per year range, which is something only a few teams can actually afford.
Norman is scheduled to visit with Washington on Friday, but if he ends up leaving without a contract it will be interesting to see if his next visit is with the Jaguars or the San Francisco 49ers.
