After denying that they were interested in trading him for months, the Jacksonville Jaguars are reportedly open to moving running back Maurice Jones-Drew in the right deal. Pro Football Talk is reporting that Jones-Drew is unlikely to be back with the team next year anyway as his contract expires following this season. Given that any team that acquires him will essentially be getting a rental for the rest of the season, Jacksonville shouldn’t set its price too high. Jones-Drew is only 28 but he has some serious mileage on his legs. Entering Sunday’s action he has rushed for 208 yards on 74 attempts (2.8 yards per carry) and just one touchdown in five games this season. While those numbers are atrocious, a lot of that can be attributed to a complete lack of talent surrounding him. Jones-Drew is a three-time Pro Bowler and a three-time All-Pro and was the NFL’s leading rusher in 2011 with 1,606 yards. He was also named the NFL Alumni Running Back of the Year in both 2010 and 2011 and...

Against the Broncos Chad Henne is high on our list of QB sneaky starts this week

Week 6 QB Starts Tony Romo vs. Washington – This one should seem fairly intuitive, after a 500+ yard effort, but just so that we’re clear: Romo is a very useful fantasy QB, particularly when the matchup is right. This week with the Redskins coming to town and additional depth at WR (Miles Austin comes back) he should deliver another top 5 QB effort. The Redskins give up the 4th...

The Pros and Cons of Trading Maurice Jones-Drew

Now that it appears Maurice Jones-Drew may be playing the final 10 games of his career in teal and black, the team may not be opposed to trading the star running back.But the offer would have to be a pretty good one if the Jaguars are going to part ways with one of the more popular players to ever put on a Jacksonville jersey.A report from Mike Florio and Pro Football Talk claims...

Jaguars would trade Jones-Drew, at the right price

Jaguars G.M. David Caldwell has said he won’t trade running back Maurice Jones-Drew. It’s possible that the rest of that statement should be “for a bowl of soup and an ugly hat.” Per a league source a deal would indeed be done at the right price. In many respects that’s obvious. Any player could in theory be traded if a big enough package is offered.

Jaguars mascot loses bet, rocks pink thong and bra

Jaguars expecting to field calls on Jason Babin

Jason Cole is reports that NFL teams “plan to call” the Jacksonville Jaguars regarding the availability of veteran DE Jason Babin. Cole’s initially indicated that the team had already received calls, but a separate source informed him that no one has show interest up to this point. With the Jaguars starting off the season 0-6, it would make sense for them to field calls...

Jaguars show progress in another double-digit loss

It wasn't just another double-digit loss for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Nope, this looked and felt much different - significantly better - for players and coaches. The Jaguars (0-6) dropped their 11th consecutive game Sunday, a 35-19 loss at unbeaten Denver. Despite being 27-point underdogs, the Jaguars used three turnovers and some early defensive pressure to make it a tight...

Jaguars Starting Chad Henne In Week 7

Jaguars HC Gus Bradley told reporters on Monday that Chad Henne will get the start against the Chargers in Week 7, per John Oehser. Bradley added that Blaine Gabbert still is not ready to return from his hamstring injury, but added that he could throw on the side in practice. Henne was 27-of-42 for 303 yards and two interceptions in Sunday’s loss to the Broncos. Overall, Henne...

Cecil Shorts Suffers Shoulder Injury

Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts, already dealing with a groin injury, suffered a shoulder injury in the first quarter against Denver.Fantasy Spin:He is not expected to return. Shorts is the NFL's most targeted player over the first five week.

Cecil Shorts Injury More Than What It Seems

Fantasy owners were discouraged this week that the wide receiver of the Jacksonville Jaguars Cecil Shorts III suffered an injury that sat him out the entire game against the Denver Broncos. Shorts left the game on the Jaguars first possession with an apparent shoulder sprain.  Yet, many fans and fantasy owners remained hopeful as the Jaguars Twitter account listed Shorts as...

Caldwell rebuilding the culture of the Jaguars as well as the team

Caldwell's rebuild of the Jaguars has included a reconstruction of the team's culture with literal changes to the facilities at EverBank Field. Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell is five regular season games into his tenure with the team and has yet to see the Jaguars earn a win. No one expects him to see the Jaguars win on Sunday either or possibly any time...

Jaguars put up good fight in 35-19 loss to Broncos

The winless Jacksonville Jaguars didn't play like a record 27-point underdog, giving the unbeaten Denver Broncos a run for their money before losing 35-19 Sunday. For a while, the Jaguars presented a stiff challenge for Peyton Manning and Co. They had a pick-6 and recovered both of Manning's fumbled snaps, Justin Blackmon reeled in 14 catches for 190 yards and Maurice Jones...

Believe in Blackmon

  Justin Blackmon has had his battles with alcohol related issues. Three incidents in three years almost cost him his spot with the Jacksonville Jaguars. There was a point before the season when the team considered cutting him and saving the 10 million dollars left on his four-year contract. After his first two games back from suspension, I believe the Jaguars’ management are...

Justin Blackmon electric, but Jaguars fall to Broncos

DENVER (AP) -- For an uncomfortably long time Sunday, it was a matter of "if" for Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, not "how many." Their supposedly lopsided matchup against the winless Jacksonville Jaguars turned into quite a tussle for much of a surreal afternoon. Not until Knowshon Moreno ran for his third touchdown did the Broncos have any sense of security...
