The 2021 edition of NFL free agency has officially begun for the Jacksonville Jaguars and... there’s been no splash signing yet. There have been a few big names taken off the board, but we’re not worried.
We’re going to try and gather every piece of news, every rumor, and every update in our live blogs through the rest of the week right here. We love you all.
10:05 PM: There goes another veteran cornerback off the market.

8:22 PM: *eyes emoji*
6:33 PM: DUUUUUUVVVVVVVAAAAAALLLLLLLLL!
5:10 PM: Another veteran defensive lineman. Malcolm Brown will fit in nicely at the nose tackle position. I doubt the Jaguars gave up anything more than a late Day 3 pick.
5:09 PM: At the risk of sounding cliche, now we’re cooking with gas. That’s the solid veteran wide receiver signing we needed. Marvin Jones, Jr. is going to help this offense.
Jaguars are giving former Lions' WR Marvin Jones a two-year, $14.5 million deal, including $9.2 million fully guaranteed, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 16, 2021
1:57 PM: Jaguars bringing back a familiar face and more help on the defensive line.
It's a two-year, $6 million deal for DT Tyson Alualu with the #Jaguars, per source.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) March 16, 2021
1:33 PM: Jaguars plan to be at full capacity for the 2021 season, however the international series is still up in the air and probably unlikely.
JUST IN: Jaguars say “the NFL has yet to determine the feasibility of the International Series restarting in 2021 after pausing in 2020 due to COVID-19. The Jaguars currently do not have an agreement with the league to play an annual home game in London”— Ben Becker (@BenBeckerANjax) March 16, 2021
1:08 PM: Jaguars could sign Shaqueem Griffin as well on Wednesday, from the sounds of it.
Shaquem Griffin is expected to head to Jacksonville as well. Seahawks won't place restricted free agent tender on him.— Corbin Smith (@CorbinSmithNFL) March 16, 2021
12:50 PM: Jaguars make their first splash, adding a starting corner.
Shaquill Griffin is headed to the Jaguars, per source. Hearing it'll be on a 3-year deal worth up 44.5 million, 29M guaranteed. Seahawks losing their top cornerback.— Dugar, Michael-Shawn (@MikeDugar) March 16, 2021
12:00 PM: It’s official. Sidney Jones is staying with the Jaguars this season.

10:30 AM: Sidney Jones is expected to re-sign with the Jaguars.
10:04 AM: I hope Bill Belichick drafts Kyle Pitts.
10:03 AM: There goes the final top-tier tight end. Gerald Everett is in play, but it’s a big failure on this regime to not have either of Hunter Henry or Jonnu Smith.
And New England strikes again: The Patriots are signing former Chargers' TE Hunter Henry to a three-year, $37.5 million deal, including $25 million guaranteed, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 16, 2021
