Jaguars' Blake Bortles: Fifth-year option could be declined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars may not pick up the fifth-year option on Bortles' rookie contract, The Florida Times-Union reports.

After taking a big step back from his breakout 2015 campaign last season, Bortles is essentially preparing for a make-or-break year in 2017, the final year of his rookie contract. As a top-10 selection -- No. 3 overall in 2014 -- Bortles would have a fifth-year option equal to the average of the 10 highest-paid players at his position. The figure likely would fall somewhere in the range of $20-25 million, which is a lot to pay for a quarterback who completed only 58.9 percent of his passes for 6.3 yards per attempt last season. The Jaguars don't need to decide on the option until shortly after the draft, and even if they decline it and Bortles then enjoys a strong season, the team can use its franchise tag to prevent him from signing elsewhere next offseason. The franchise tag would be similar to the fifth-year option in terms of salary, but using the tag on Bortles would prevent the Jaguars from using it on another player from their impressive 2014 draft class -- a group that includes WRs Allen Robinson and Marquise Lee, LB Telvin Smith and CB Aaron Colvin.

Jaguars' Malliciah Goodman: Signs contract with Jaguars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodman signed with the Jaguars on Friday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

The 27-year-old defensive end bounced around between the Falcons and the Seahawks last season and hasn't appeared in more than four games in a single season since the 2014 campaign. He adds some depth to the Jaguars' front, but the club has been so proactive in adding to its edge depth in recent years that it's difficult to imagine Goodman carving out a significant role with them this season.

Jaguars' Mychal Rivera: Inks deal with Jaguars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars and Rivera agreed to a contract Wednesday, the team's official site reports.

Rivera visited some TE-needy teams this offseason (the Jets and Colts) but ultimately settled on the Jaguars, who currently roster six other players at the position. Helping his cause for playing time, though, is his stature as an H-back, from which he hauled in 146 of 230 passes for 1,413 yards and 10 touchdowns during his four seasons with the Raiders. Depending on how the Jaguars emerge from this year's draft, Rivera's primary competitor for work at the moment is long-time Jag, Marcedes Lewis (calf).

Jaguars' Allen Hurns: Ready to train with teammates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hurns (hamstring) will train with Blake Bortles and Allen Robinson next week, The Florida Times-Union reports.

Hurns missed the final five games of last season with a hamstring injury, but there's been no report of surgery and nothing to suggest that the issue will impact his offseason program. With Hurns, Robinson and Bortles all looking to bounce back from massively disappointing 2016 campaigns, this is shaping up as a make-or-break year for the young Jacksonville offense. Fellow wideout Marqise Lee did enjoy a breakout season amidst the chaos, thereby giving Hurns and Robinson more competition for targets than they had back in 2015. There should still be plenty to go around -- especially if the Jags don't use a high draft pick on a tight end or a pass-catching back. The team begins its offseason program April 10.

Jaguars' Blake Bortles: Says he's happy with offseason progress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bortles said he is pleased with his throwing mechanics at the moment, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Bortles has spent a significant portion of his offseason at 3DQB -- the QB training facility he utilized prior to his solid 2015 campaign. He stayed in Jacksonville last offseason to work with his receivers in preparation for what was ultimately a highly disappointing campaign. It seems he'll get the best of both worlds this time around, as he's already been working with Marqise Lee in California and will soon join Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns in Arizona. Of course, these kinds of reports are a dime a dozen in the offseason, with nearly every player embarking on some type of training regimen between the Super Bowl and the start of OTAs. Bortles still has a ton to prove as he enters the final year of his rookie contract, a season that could potentially serve as his last chance to prove he can be Jacksonville's franchise quarterback.
