The 2021 edition of NFL free agency has officially begun for the Jacksonville Jaguars and... we finally got our big signings yesterday. There are still a few big names available, but we feel good about the direction that Urban Meyer is taking this team.
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.

The #Jaguars are trading TE Josh Oliver to the #Ravens for a conditional draft pick, source said.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 17, 2021
5:08 PM: I don’t think the Jaguars should trade Gardner Minshew — he’s a good backup and a low-end starter on a controlled-cost salary. But Trent Baalke is getting calls.
1:38 PM: Do it, Jaguars. DO IT.

10:34 AM: In case you missed it, Trent Williams is off the market. I would have been surprised for the Jaguars to make a move after franchise tagging Cam Robinson.
Trent Williams is a unicorn. The 49ers had no choice to pay him whatever he wanted based on how he played in 2020. He’s a left tackle with a highlight tape. pic.twitter.com/mWw7N7hbPl— KP (@KP_Show) March 17, 2021
