JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars began free agency by signing a key backup, cutting a former Pro Bowler and scheduling a visit with receiver Laurent Robinson. The Jaguars signed linebacker Russell Allen to a three-year contract Tuesday. They also released receiver Kassim Osgood, a three-time Pro Bowler on special teams, and offensive lineman Kevin Haslam. Jacksonville also signed veteran punter Nick Harris to a contract. But the biggest news could end up being about Robinson, who was traveling to Jacksonville for an interview Tuesday night. The former Dallas Cowboys receiver caught 54 passes for 858 yards and 11 touchdowns last season, and has been considered one of the top receivers on the market. The Jaguars lost out on top receiver targets Marques Colston, Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan.
