Art Rooney II: Pittsburgh Steelers can’t fixate on Jacksonville Jaguars next season - 247sports.com
The Pittsburgh Steelers have some very nasty habits as a football team, but perhaps none is worse than their proclivity towards ignoring lesser opponents. They spent the entire 2017 season utterly fixated on the New England Patriots to the degree that even after losing 30-9 to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5, they still refused to take them seriously in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. That would be their undoing, as the Jaguars defeated them 45-42 in that round to earn the matchup with the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game that the Steelers had spent all season preparing for.

Jacksonville Jaguars will be “major players” for Kirk Cousins next month - BigCatCountry.com
The Jacksonville Jaguars have the cap space to pursue impending free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins, but do they have the inclination? Will they move away from Blake Bortles and spend big on a veteran quarterback?

Tony Pauline of DraftAnalysis.com thinks so and he thinks it’s closer to happening than what we thought when the season ended, according to whispers he’s heard around the leaguewhen he was at this year’s Senior Bowl.

Could the Jacksonville Jaguars pursue Nick Foles this offseason? - FanRagSports.com
This time of year, never believe the “guaranteed” money numbers first reported. Those first numbers usually include only injury guarantees. That’s not normally a major concern because a player would have to be hurt at just the right time for such numbers to matter.

They matter this year for the Jacksonville Jaguars, who may have to pay Blake Bortles $19 million whether he’s on the team or not.
