  Jaguars | Tim Tebow decision coming soon    Sat May 15, 07:30 PM

Free-agent TE Tim Tebow (Eagles) remains unsigned but Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer said Saturday, May 15, he imagines 'a decision is gonna be soon.'

Footballguys view: Let's just get this thing going already. Meyer loves what Tebow can bring to the team in terms of leadership and locker room presence, and Tebow wants to play football again...albeit at a different position. The former first-round quarterback shouldn't push for much playing time but could give Meyer some trusted depth at a thin position. Chris Manhertz and James O'Shaugnessy are the top two tight ends on the depth chart.

  Jaguars | Travis Etienne taking WR reps    Sat May 15, 02:53 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne will take all of his rookie minicamp repetitions at wide receiver, Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer said Saturday, May 15. 'Worst-case scenario you have a running back that's elite with receiver skills,' Meyer said.

Footballguys view: Etienne had 588 receiving yards in 2020, the most of any running back in the FBS. He's a dynamic runner who can make defenders miss with speed and balance. Etienne has big-play ability and can pick up chunk yards in a hurry. The Jaguars have James Robinson as a lead back, but Etienne will work his way into the mix - either as a running back or receiver.

  Jaguars | Trevor Lawrence to take part in minicamp    Thu May 13, 06:48 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence (shoulder) will be a limited participant during the team's upcoming rookie minicamp.

Footballguys view: Lawrence had offseason surgery on his non-throwing shoulder but has been passing the ball. Teams don't do much at rookie minicamp anymore, so Lawrence won't get pushed too much. This will mostly be an installation period where Lawrence can deep dive into the playbook.

  Jaguars | Jacksonville to add Tim Tebow    Mon May 10, 02:04 PM

Free-agent TE Tim Tebow (Eagles) plans to sign a one-year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Footballguys view: Tebow is back in the NFL but Tebow-mania isn't what it used to be. He was a first-round pick (2010) of the Broncos when he was playing quarterback. Tebow led the Broncos to the playoffs in an improbably run in 2011 and won a Wild Card Game against the Steelers. When the Broncos secured Peyton Manning in 2012, Tebow was traded away to the Jets and was soon out of the league. He's back, and reunited with his college coach Urban Meyer, but this time he's playing tight end. Tebow will be a reserve tight end and gadget player for the Jaguars.

  Jaguars | Tim Tebow an option at TE    Mon May 10, 10:07 AM

Former QB Tim Tebow is an option as a backup tight end for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Footballguys view: Tebow played for Urban Meyer during his college days at Florida. He could join the Jaguars to give them depth at the tight end position and he could even get some gadget plays near the end zone. We can't imagine much fantasy value coming from the move to add Tebow.

  Jaguars | Travis Etienne the top back?    Fri May 7, 11:36 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne has 'more juice' than RB James Robinson, according to Bucky Brooks of NFL.com, and Brooks believes the 'RB1 job is Etienne's to lose' heading into the 2021 season.

Footballguys view: Etienne has "juice" to his game but Robinson was a fine starter last year for the Jaguars and he's not going to back down without a fight. He played over 90 percent of the Jaguars offensive snaps last year but that number will certainly go down in 2021. Etienne will push Robinson for the starting job and we'll see who comes out on top in training camp.

  Jaguars | Jags ink Tim Jones    Sun May 2, 07:55 PM

Undrafted free-agent WR Tim X. Jones (Southern Miss) has agreed to terms with the Jacksonville Jaguars on a deal that includes $180,000 guaranteed, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Jones was incredibly productive and consistent in college (150 receptions in four years). He's a slot receiver with speed and wiggle to his game. He can take short passes and turn them into long gains. His skill set and his pro quarterback (Trevor Lawrence) mean we'll be monitoring him in super deep dynasty formats.

  Jaguars | Travis Etienne may be third down back    Sun May 2, 05:00 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne may initially be used as a third-down back but could also line up in the slot or as an outside receiver.

Footballguys view: The pick of Etienne is interesting because the team already has James Robinson as their lead back. When you think of Etienne's big play ability and versatility then things make more sense. They could use Etienne as a slot receiver, wide receiver or running back. It would make a lot of sense for head coach Urban Meyer to utilize Etienne in a number of different ways.

  Jaguars | Josh Imatorbhebhe joining Jaguars    Sat May 1, 08:00 PM

Undrafted free-agent WR Josh Imatorbhebhe (Illinois) agreed to terms with the Jacksonville Jaguars Saturday, May 1, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Imatorbhebhe is known as a "springy" athlete with a basketball background. He knows how to use his frame to keep defenders away from the ball. However, his concentration and route-running ability need a lot of work.

  Jaguars | Jags land Travis Etienne    Thu Apr 29, 11:17 PM

Clemson RB Travis Etienne was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars with the 25th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Etienne brings a big-play element to the Jaguars backfield. He joins college teammate Trevor Lawrence in the new look offense. Etienne's addition is bad news for James Robinson. Even though Etienne can be used as a slot receiver and receiving back, it does take touches and targets away from Robinson this season.

  Jaguars | Trevor Lawrence goes to Jacksonville    Thu Apr 29, 08:27 PM

Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars with the first overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Lawrence is a franchise level quarterback and seen as a "can't miss" prospect. He processes information quickly and can throw lasers regularly on the field. From a fantasy lens, Lawrence is a QB2 with upside based on his talent and the weapons around him.

  Jaguars | Dare Ogunbowale under contract    Mon Apr 19, 05:32 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars exclusive rights free-agent RB Dare Ogunbowale signed his one-year tender offer Monday, April 19. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Ogunbowale remains with the Jaguars and will stick as a reserve running back. James Robinson is the starter and Carlos Hyde was added this offseason to back him up. We'll see Ogunbowale try to find a spot on the depth chart behind those two.

  Jaguars | Trevor Lawrence on track to be top pick    Mon Mar 29, 01:51 PM

Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence is the most likely candidate for the Jacksonville Jaguars with the first overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, according to Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Lawrence is a generational talent at the quarterback position. He sees the entire field and does a good job of anticipating where to go with the football. Lawrence does not shy away from pressure and does a good job of keeping his eyes downfield when the heat is on. He could be a great one in the pros, and Meyer should be thrilled to get him.

  Jaguars | James Robinson to stay busy?    Fri Mar 26, 10:55 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB James Robinson could 'take a step forward from where he was a year ago,' general manager Trent Baalke said.

Footballguys view: Robinson is going to get a large workload and could see better boxes from the defense as he'll have a legit quarterback under center. Jacksonville should take QB Trevor Lawrence (Clemson) with the no.1 overall pick and the rookie is a generational talent. A better passing game will mean lighter boxes for Robinson which could lead to more production. What he did as a rookie in 2020 is just the tip of the iceberg and Robinson is a RB1 who should be a late first-round pick or early second-round pick in fantasy drafts (current ADP is 2.04 in 12-team PPR leagues).

Free-agent S Josh Jones (Jaguars) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars Friday, March 26. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Jones played 700 snaps at safety for the Jaguars last year. Rayshawn Jenkins was signed to a big deal and will be ahead of Jones on the depth chart, but he could still figure into the safety group on passing downs.

  Jaguars | C.J. Beathard update    Fri Mar 26, 08:09 AM

Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars QB C.J. Beathard was guaranteed $2.75 million, which is an indication he'll be on the roster in 2021.

Footballguys view: Beathard is going to be a reserve quarterback behind likely no.1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence. It seems like only a matter of time before Garnder Minshew is dealt away to a team in need of quarterback help.

Free-agent QB C.J. Beathard (49ers) is expected to sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars soon, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Beathard gives the team depth and starting experience. There are plenty who believe the Jaguars will trade away Gardner Minshew and then select Trevor Lawrence (Clemson) with the no.1 overall pick. We'll see if Minshew is actually dealt away in the near future.

  Jaguars | Jags not looking to deal Gardner Minshew    Sat Mar 20, 09:23 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew is not under consideration to be traded at this point, even though multiple NFL clubs have contacted the team about his availability, according to head coach Urban Meyer.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars have the no.1 overall pick and that should be QB Trevor Lawrence from Clemson. That means Minshew is expendable as the team moves forward with a new potential franchise quarterback. Minshew has started enough games and flashed enough to get interest from teams like the Broncos who need or want a quarterback competition. They're not looking to deal Minshew, but that could change at a moment's notice.

Detroit Lions impending free-agent WR Marvin Jones plans to sign a two-year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars worth $14.5 million, according to a source. The deal will include $9.2 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars get a top receiver on the market here. Jones will work on the outside to take the top off the defense. He'll work with D.J. Chark and Laviska Shenault to give the Jaguars a nice trio of wide receivers at the top of the depth chart.
