Jacksonville Jaguars smart to approach 2018 offseason with an eye on 2019 cap -
Having rolled over $27,768,739 of salary cap space, the Jaguars currently have a projected $29.5 million available to spend when unrestricted free agency begins at 4 p.m., Wednesday.

As the Jaguars continue to plot their strategy, there are several pressing questions: How much will receiver Allen Robinson and cornerback Aaron Colvin get on the open market? How team- and player-friendly was the deal signed by quarterback Blake Bortles? And how much do future contract extensions for in-house players impact this year’s spending?

Yannick Ngakoue wants team to re-sign Allen Robinson -
While he’s not completely out the door just yet, the general feeling is that pending free agent wide receiver Allen Robinson won’t be on the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2018, but some of his teammates hope he’s back on the team. Those teammates include some of the defensive players, such as pass rush Yannick Ngakoue who expressed his desire for the Jaguars to re-sign Robinson on Sirius XM NFL radio on Friday morning.

Allen Robinson is a risky free agent, but worth the gamble -
What an NFL team sees when it looks at Allen Robinson on the open market will say more about the team than the soon-to-be free-agent wide receiver.

Some general managers will close their eyes and see a field of giant red flags flapping in a stiff wind. They will pluck one of the flags and plant it on Robinson’s left ACL, the one he tore in Week 1 of the 2017 season after he’d played a mere three snaps for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
