  • Jaguars sign first round pick Josh Allen
    by Jon Kurland on May 23, 2019 at 6:56 pm

    The Jacksonville Jaguars have wrapped up the final major hurdle with regards to their 2019 rookie class, reaching a contract agreement with first-round pick Josh Allen. Though terms of the deal were yet to be disclosed, the NFL’s rookie slotted system shows Allen is projected to earn $22.8 million over four years, with a $14.6 million bonus due at signing. The team will also gain a fifth-year option in 2023, should Allen’s performance deserve it. Plenty of reasons to smile.@JoshAllen41_ has officially signed his contract. #DUUUVAL pic.twitter.com/sdnK34cDE3— #DUUUVAL (@Jaguars) May 23, 2019 Selected No. 7 overall in the 2019 NFL Draft, after somewhat shockingly falling to the Jaguars having been projected as a “sure fire” top five selection by most draft experts, Allen has been regarded by many as a steal for the team and is projected to contribute immediately come September as both a down lineman in pass rushing situations and as a potential strong side linebacker when the team goes to it’s base defensive personnel. Allen enters the NFL coming off a 2018 collegiate season that saw him receive nearly every defensive accolade a collegiate player can earn outside of the Heisman Trophy, including the Bronko Nagurski Trophy awarded to the nation’s top defender, as he registered 17 sacks, 21.5 tackles for loss, and 88 total tackles as a senior in arguably the toughest conference in college football. The signing now allows the Jaguars to enter the remainder of their offseason workouts and training camp with the entirety of their rookie draft class under contract. […]

  • Josh Allen not practicing with bruised knee
    by Ryan Day on May 23, 2019 at 3:27 pm

    The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without first round pick Josh Allen as he has a knee contusion, but head coach Doug Marrone said it’s “nothing major” according to John Reid of the Florida Times-Union. Josh Allen working on side field today because of bruised knee, Coach Doug Maroone says it is nothing major— John Reid (@JohnReid64) May 23, 2019 Every player on every NFL team will deal with some sort of injury over the course of the season, but this is extremely mild. That said, it’s Day 2 of OTAs and we have literally nothing else to talk about so it will likely be a trending topic by lunchtime. Go Jaguars. […]

  • Yannick Ngakoue: “My production speaks for itself...”
    by Ryan Day on May 22, 2019 at 1:13 pm

    The Jacksonville Jaguars have something truly special in Yannick Ngakoue. Not only has the former third round pick out of Maryland racked up 29.5 sacks and 10 forced fumbles in his three years with the team, he’s never missed a game. He’s a smart, physical, passionate, hard-working, team-first, leader who deserves a new contract. And he knows it too. “My production speaks for itself at the end of the day,” Ngakoue said after Day 1 of OTAs yesterday. “That is really a question for the front office. I can’t control that. All I can control is me getting better each and every day ... I’m here to play ball. Let those guys handle it, the front office and my agent. He has experience doing those things and I have experience making plays on the field. That’s why I’m here.” Rookie contracts are now structured based on draft slot. Because of his getting drafted No. 69 (nice) overall, he put pen to paper on a four-year, $3,480,587 deal back in 2016 when he was drafted. But he’s played well past his contract and now that he’s in his fourth year, he’s eligible for a contract extension now — compiling 21.5 sacks and 23 tackles for a loss in his last two seasons. Yannick wants to sign an extension, he wants to stay here. The Jaguars would be smart to offer an extension sooner rather than later, locking up a premier edge rusher as he enters his prime. The only question is... will the Jaguars do the smart thing? […]

  • Ngakoue will play this season even without extension
    by Ryan Day on May 21, 2019 at 7:18 pm

    Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue said he won’t hold out this season even if a contract extension doesn’t get done, according to Daniel Popper of The Athletic. Yannick Ngakoue said he plans to play this season even if an extension doesn’t get done. #Jaguars— Daniel Popper (@danielrpopper) May 21, 2019 Ngakoue is entering the final year of his rookie contract, so it’s pretty clear he is angling for a new long term deal, as he should be. The former third round pick has played well above his rookie deal, emerging as one of the more disruptive pass rushers in the NFL since his rookie season. Yannick Ngakoue has racked up 29.5 sacks over the past three seasons along with 70 quarterbacks hits and 10 forced fumbles. He was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2017 and nearly had back-to-back double digit sack seasons, missing out in 2018 with 9.5 sacks, even with a slow start to the year. Ngakoue reported to the first set of voluntary workouts, then skipped and is now back again for OTAs, so I think it’s pretty clear that he is looking for a new deal but has shown the team a sign of good faith by initially reporting, making his point, and coming back into the fold. I wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up with a new long-term deal prior to the start of training camp. […]

  • Live blog for Day 1 of OTAs
    by Ryan Day on May 21, 2019 at 1:03 pm

    The Jacksonville Jaguars will open their three week OTA practice schedule today, which ends with a three-day mandatory minicamp. You can view the full schedule of OTA practices and veteran minicamp here. What’s standing out from Day 1 of OTA practices? Follow along with everything Jaguars by checking out our live blog throughout the day. Live blog 8:59 AM: Yes, I know it’s just voluntary OTA practices but it’s still real to me, dammit! Watch Jags Drive Time with @JagsVoice, @AshlynRSullivan, and @JohnOehser LIVE from TIAA Bank Field. https://t.co/SyTrfE7aSP— #DUUUVAL (@Jaguars) May 21, 2019 7:48 AM: We’ve got the practice schedule for today, which will likely be the format for the rest of OTAs going forward. It’s interesting that the first player to have Yannick Ngakoue as the first player to be available to the media. I hope it means long term contract. Updated @Jaguars Media Schedule for OTA No. 1 (all on outdoor practice fields):• 10:15 a.m. — Head Coach Doug Marrone available.• 10:45-12:45 p.m. — Practice open to media. • 12:45 p.m. — DE @YannickNgakoue available. Marrone & Ngakoue pressers will be streamed live.— Tad Dickman (@TDickman89) May 21, 2019 7:19 AM: Yannick Ngakoue will be at OTA practices despite the fact he’s looking for a long term deal. Unless a new contract is imminent, this is an awful decision that gives the team everything and leaves Ngakoue with all the risk. #Jaguars star DE Yannick Ngakoue, despite being in the final year of his rookie deal, is expected to be at OTAs beginning today, source said. Ngakoue will lead on that defensive line, starting with the voluntary workouts.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) May 21, 2019 […]
