Is Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan the new Toxic Avenger?

Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid R. Khan is new to the NFL’s ownership group. Like most super-successful moguls, there are cries that he stepped over some people and left others in the dust. In his case, the dust is more like potentially deadly toxic fumes. Please click the link below to read the rest of this story.

Ex-Jags Owner Wayne Weaver Auctioning His Frat House; $5.5M

The last time we heard from Wayne Weaver he was selling the Jacksonville Jaguars for $760 million and heading off into the sunset to live out his life without the thought of Blaine Gabbert throwing another INT. Now comes word that Wayne is saying “F-it, I’m unloading my 14,000 sq. ft. frat house.”  Dude is 77 and was asking $10 million. The Buy It Now price is now $5.5 million...

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have waived six players, including running back Deji Karim. Also waived were linebacker JoJo Dickson, linebacker Stephen Franklin, linebacker Jammie Kirlew, defensive back Trumaine McBride and place-kicker Sam Swank.

Jaguars TE Zach Potter questions team over punter draft pick

Those following the NFL Draft on Friday probably had to do a double take when they saw the Jaguars selected Cal punter Bryan Anger with the seventh pick in the third round. It was a pick for which the Jags came under fire — these days taking a punter that early is rarely seen. Even the team’s own players were critical of the selection. Here’s what tight end Zach Potter had...

Jaguars draft 28-year-old Pendleton in 7th round

The Jacksonville Jaguars have drafted 28-year-old defensive tackle Jeris Pendleton in the seventh round. The team has an unsettled situation at defensive tackle, with Tyson Alualu coming off knee surgery and fellow starter Terrance Knighton out for the majority of the offseason following eye surgery. Pendleton is a 328-pound run-stopper who wanted to attend Michigan State out of...

Jacksonville Jaguars select Andre Branch, Grade A

I have been critical of Jacksonville Jaguars GM Gene Smith in the past, but he’s putting together a nice draft this year. Andre Branch was the top defensive end on the board, and should make immediate impact in Jacksonville. They needed to add a young end to improve their pass rush, and Branch can definitely be that guy. He’ll likely be used as part of a rotation early in his...

Blackmon sits out Jaguars practice

Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Justin Blackmon sat out the final day of rookie camp because of a sore right foot. The Jaguars drafted the former Oklahoma State star with the fifth pick in last week's NFL Draft, hoping he can upgrade the league's worst offense. Blackmon spent the first two days of the three-day camp getting familiar with coaches, teammates and plays. He spent...

Running back Deji Karim was among five players released by the Jaguars. Karim was Maurice Jones-Drew's backup after Rashad Jennings was injured, but managed just 160 yards on 63 carries and lost his role to DuJuan Harris by the end of the season. Linebackers JoJo Dickson, Stephen Franklin and Jammie Kirlew, defensive back Trumaine McBride and kicker Sam Swank were also released.

Jaguars release 2 punters

The Jacksonville Jaguars, who drafted punter Bryan Anger in the third round of the NFL Draft on Friday, have released two punters who were on their roster, Nick Harris and Spencer Lanning, according to the Florida Times-Union. The Jaguars drafted Anger, who played at Cal, with the 70th pick of the draft. That is the earliest a punter has been drafted since 1995. Harris, an...

Jaguars draft Cal punter Anger in 3rd round

The Jacksonville Jaguars have made one of the NFL draft's biggest surprises, selecting Cal punter Bryan Anger in the third round. He's the highest punter drafted since 1995, when the Chicago Bears chose Todd Sauerbrun in the second round. Anger averaged more than 44 yards a punt in 2011, and had at least one punt of 50 yards or more in 11 games. But is he good enough to...

Justin Blackmon was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars to help Blaine Galbert.  They already have the threat of Maurice Jones-Drew, now they add another threat to become more dimensional.  Next stop, help protect Galbert?

JagNation All A Buzz About Blackmon

The Jaguars passing game was the worst in franchise history a season ago. This offseason was spent addressing their deficiencies at wide receiver and there should be a significant boost in the fall.
