Jacksonville, FL (Associate Press) - The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed running back Maurice Jones-Drew on the reserve/did not report list, an indication they don't expect their star player to show up to training camp anytime soon. The Jaguars signed fullback Will Ta'ufo'ou to take his spot on the 90-man roster. Ta'ufo'ou has spent time with Chicago, Cleveland, Denver and Tennessee. But he hasn't played in a regular-season game. Ta'ufo'ou gives the Jaguars four fullbacks, including Greg Jones, Brock Bolen and Montell Owens. Another fullback, Naufahi Tahi, left the team Friday in what coach Mike Mularkey called a family decision. Jones-Drew, meanwhile, is holding out in hopes of getting the team to renegotiate his contract. He has two years remaining on a five-year, $31 million deal. The team says it has no plans to renegotiate.

  • Mo-!Jo Is a good runner but he would not have put up the numbers he did without Brad Meester & the
    Front line & more importantly the lead blocks of Greg Jones...Give Greg Jones a raise & let Mo-Jo move on...I ll bet he was a happy camper when he signed the contact he has now...Without Jones his rushing
    Numbers will drop by 30 0/0...Let's move on to a great season with a new running back. It is still a team

Jaguars kicker can’t find spot for Aston Martin

Two weeks ago, Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee broke the bank (as far as kickers go), squeezing in a four-year contract extension. The new deal included $4.75 million in guarantees so, like most pro athletes, he immediately tapped into some of the new-found wealth by purchasing his dream ride, a silver Aston Martin. Though, despite having his own James Bond car, one problem remains...

Let’s start off with the best part…the Jaguars new locker room (courtesy of its new owner Shad Kahn) is SWANK AS HELL! I mean truly amazing. Kahn really has some good taste. Let’s get into it.

Jacksonville Jaguars 2012 training camp chronicles day 3

- The Jacksonville Jaguars placed a great emphasis on individual drills today. The most interesting event was when Jerry Sullivan verbally smote WR Taylor Price after messing up on a route-running drill.

Rundown: James Harrison/Ken Stabler, MJD, Justin Blackmon, and More

Apparently, James Harrison doesn’t remember Super Bowl XI or Ken Stabler’s career for that matter. Steelers GM Kevin Colbert says the last offer to Pittsburgh’s Mike Wallace is off the table. Eagles tight end Brent Celek sprained his MCL. The Eagles claim they are fine at tight end (rolling eyes…) and claim they don’t need Jeremy Shockey…for now. A NYT season...

The five people responsible for the Jacksonville Jaguars miserable off-season.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are imploding before the season begins in a very unremarkable fashion. The franchise has a new coach, new owner, a new group of receivers, a young quarterback that is trying to forget the year 2011 ever happened and are missing the draft pick they gave up the world for and their one ray of light that refuses to show up without a raise. So who should the...
