About a week ago the Jacksonville Jaguars only had a single quarterback under contract, starter Blake Bortles. The team then made a trade with the Cleveland Browns for Cody Kessler bringing that total to two and just recently the team worked out a couple of veterans, according to Field Yates of ESPN.

While I think bringing up Bortles surgery here is a bit of hyperbole, considering Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone has indicated he’s throwing in California and has zero issues, the team is clearly not done at the quarterback position this offseason, nor should they be.
The Kessler deal has stipulations that if he’s not active for at least six games, the Browns get no compensation, so it’s still not clear if he’s going to be cemented as the No. 2 quarterback, let alone even on the roster. I don’t think the veteran duo of Kellen Clemens and Austin Davis really bring anything to the table, but it’s clear the team is still looking at the quarterback position, even if it’s just for a camp arm.
