The Jacksonville Jaguars signed RB Storm Johnson Tuesday, May 20. Per NFL
rules, the length of the contract is four years. Financial terms of the contract were
not immediately disclosed.
Huddle Up: The 7th-round pick heads into OTAs listed fourth on the Jags' RB depth chart, but
the 3 backs (Toby Gerhart, Jordan Todman and Denard Robinson) listed ahead of
him are far from established NFL backs.

The Jacksonville Jaguars selected Central Florida QB Blake Bortles with the third
overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: The Jags have their next franchise QB hopeful, but it wasn't the QB many had
projected going first as Johnny Manziel was still on the board entering the second
half of the first round. Instead, Bortles remains in the Sunshine State, and coach
Gus Bradley said the team would've selected Bortles even if No. 1 overall pick
Jadeveon Clowney had still been on the board at No. 3. Bortles could use a year of
seasoning coming out early, but with the pedestrian Chad Henne atop the Jags'
QB depth chart, Bortles has a good chance to start early.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will visit with Fresno State QB Derek Carr on Wednesday, April 8.
Huddle Up: There's little doubt the Jags will be drafting a QB and if they decide the No. 3 overall pick is too early to snag one, they could trade back or gamble and target the record-setting Carr is available early in the second record, where they pick 39th overall.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have met with Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater at the NFL Scouting Combine. Jaguars owner Shad Khan was part of the meeting, and head coach Gus Bradley said Bridgewater's poise and decision-making 'jumps out' on film.
Huddle Up: The Jags own the No. 3 overall pick in the draft, and it will be intriguing to see if the team spends a second top-10 pick on a QB in the last 4 years with the other, Blaine Gabbert, still on the roster.

Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said if you try to force picking a quarterback at a certain point in a draft, you can make a mistake. 'In today's day and age, if you can't get Peyton Manning or Matt Ryan, and they might not be available for the next 10 or 15 years, then you have to adapt and build the roster and do what's best for the organization,' Caldwell said. 'And if a quarterback presents itself later in the draft, you take and develop him. Having a franchise guy makes the world a lot easier, though. It can erase a lot of mistakes you make. But if you force it, you can screw it up. I don't know if we're going to find that guy, but I hope we do.'
Huddle Up: Either the Jags are blowing smoke about their intentions with the No. 3 overall pick or it was a rare moment of honesty. Either way, look for Blaine Gabbert to have some serious competition for the starting job this coming season.

West Virginia QB Geno Smith appears to be a lock to be taken in the
first five picks in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: If Smith does go in the top 5, it likely will be the Jaguars making
the move with the second-overall pick. The Jags have bypassed making
a QB move in a free agency and the need for a quarterback is as big
or bigger than any the club currently has.

University of Miami offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch will become the Jacksonville Jaguars' new offensive coordinator.
Huddle Up: Fisch has spent plenty of time in the League, including a stint as QB coach in Seattle when new Jags HC Gus Bradley was with the Seahawks. His first order of business will be determining if Blaine Gabbert gets another year to prove himself or if the Jaguars are back in the market for a quarterback.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have named former Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley head coach Thursday, Jan. 17.
Huddle Up: Bradley, whose profile soared with the Seahawks' impressive defensive showing this season, nonetheless bucks the trend with most teams hiring offensive-oriented coaches. The Jags' lackluster QB situation needs extra attention, and it'll be interesting to see whom Bradley turns to as his offensive coordinator.

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey told his players in a meeting Monday, Dec. 31, that as far as he knows he's still head coach after talking with owner Shad Khan.
Huddle Up: The Jags have already fired GM Gene Smith, but it looks like they're willing to give Mularkey more time--and, in theory, better players--to see what he can do.
