Jacksonville Jaguars Daily: The case for and against signing Colin Kaepernick

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers Neville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports

The case for and against the Jacksonville Jaguars signing Colin Kaepernick -
It appears the Jacksonville Jaguars are going all-in on quarterbacks Blake Bortles and Chad Henne. Third-string quarterback Brandon Allen is not in the recently opened competition to be the starter and free agent Colin Kaepernick — at this point, anyway — doesn't seem to be an option, either.

Chad Henne will be starting against the Carolina Panthers -
The Jacksonville Jaguars will start veteran quarterback Chad Henne against the Carolina Panthers in their Week 3 preseason matchup, according to Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union. The move to start Henne shouldn’t be much of a surprise, as soon as Marrone publicly noted the starting quarterback job was up for grabs, the writing was on the wall. In order for it to be opened up, the gap between Henne and Bortles was either small, non-existent or upside down.

Is Allen Hurns on the trade block? -
A year ago, the Jaguars were so high on wide receiver Allen Hurns that they signed him to a four-year, $40 million contract extension. This year, the team’s view of Hurns appears to have changed. There’s talk in Jacksonville that Hurns could be traded, with Jaguars beat writer Ryan O’Hallaran guessing that’s what the team wants to do.
