 Latest Jaguars Player Notes
Jul 19 2017 - Dante Fowler Jr.
  DE Dante Fowler Jr. of the Jacksonville Jaguars was arrested in St. Petersburg, Fla., on Tuesday night on charges of simple battery and mischief. Fowler, 22, was arrested in his hometown by St. Petersburg police for the misdemeanor charges at 9:02 p.m. and released at 1:43 a.m. Wednesday on $650 bond. Fowler struck a man and then stomped on his prescription glasses after a brief verbal confrontation, according to the police report obtained by the Tampa Bay Times. Fowler got out of his car to confront the man after he made a comment about Fowler's driving, according to the report. Police said Fowler then "took the victim's grocery bag, with recently purchased liquor, and threw it in a lake." Police said the victim was not injured. The 6-3, 255-pound Fowler, who was the third overall selection in the 2015 NFL Draft out of Florida, recorded 32 tackles and four sacks in 16 games for the Jaguars last season.


Jun 16 2017 - Jalen Ramsey
  CB Jalen Ramsey underwent surgery to repair a core muscle injury, the Jacksonville Jaguars announced on Friday. The Jaguars did not disclose how long Ramsey would be sidelined, however a typical recovery from this type of surgery is approximately six weeks. That timetable would put the 22-year-old Ramsey back for the first week of training camp. Ramsey, who was the fifth overall pick of the 2016 draft, collected 65 tackles, two interceptions and one forced fumble while starting every game during his rookie season.


Jun 13 2017 - Mychal Rivera
  TE Mychal Rivera will be counted on to add a dimension to the passing game that Julius Thomas was supposed to bring. Rivera spent four years in Oakland, playing all but three of 64 games. His production last season fell to 18 catches for 192 yards when he missed three games, but prior to that, he caught 128 passes for 1,221 yards and nine touchdowns. His best season was in 2014, when he had 58 receptions for 534 yards and four scores. "He's a player that he makes the plays he should make and does a nice job," Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said.


Jun 13 2017 - Branden Albert
  LT Branden Albert started his Jacksonville career listed as the No. 3 left tackle, with plenty of work to do on the conditioning side as well. "(He) probably looked like a guy who hasn't been here for a long period of time," Marrone said when asked how Albert looked in his first team practice on Tuesday. Albert, acquired from Miami in March, failed to join his teammates for any of the offseason workouts and skipped all 10 of the team's OTA sessions the past three weeks.


Jun 13 2017 - Branden Albert
  OT Branden Albert arrived at the Jacksonville Jaguars' team facility on Monday, one day before the start of mandatory minicamp. Albert skipped the Jaguars' voluntary workouts reportedly because he was in search of a new contract. The 32-year-old, however, told coach Doug Marrone last week that he would attend the minicamp. Albert was acquired from the Miami Dolphins in March in exchange for a 2018 seventh-round pick.


May 17 2017 - Leonard Fournette
  RB Leonard Fournette signed his rookie contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Wednesday. While the Jaguars did not release terms of the deal, the team tweeted a picture of Fournette signing his first NFL contract. Fournette was selected fourth overall at last month's draft and reportedly signed a four-year deal.


May 14 2017 - Branden Albert
  OT Branden Albert remains a no-show for the Jacksonville Jaguars' voluntary offseason workouts in an apparent ploy to have his contract restructured. He was acquired from the Miami Dolphins in March in exchange for a 2018 seventh-round pick. Marrone said his emotion is "actually more hurt than mad," because he feels disrespected by Albert, according to the Florida Times-Union. Albert, 32, signed a five-year, $47 million contract in 2014 and will earn $8.875 million in 2017 and $9.575 million in 2018. The 6-foot-5, 315-pound Albert, entering his 10th NFL season, started all 12 games he played last season. He started 35 games during his three seasons in Miami.


May 13 2017 - Marquez Williams
  FB Marquez Williams of Miami is one of two Jacksonville draft picks to sign. The 270-pounder played one year with the Hurricanes as a graduate transfer after three seasons at Division II Mars Hill (N.C.) University. The Jaguars did not have a fullback on their roster the last two years but signed Tommy Bohanon during the offseason before selecting Williams late in the draft.


May 13 2017 - Jalen Myrick
  CB Jalen Myrick, who has blazing speed, will likely play a larger role as a special teams player. A seventh-round draft pick out of Minnesota, returned punts and kickoffs during his time with the Golden Gophers.


May 13 2017 - Cam Robinson
  OT Cam Robinson is another player who will be under the watchful eye of coaches. The 6-foot-6, 326-pound former Alabama tackle appears to have all the skills needed to be an elite NFL lineman. The biggest question with Robinson concerns where the Jaguars will play him. He started 44 games at left tackle for the Crimson Tide before electing to forego his senior season to enter the NFL Draft. Robinson said he couldn't remember if the Jaguars talked to him during the pre-draft process about the possibility of moving to guard.


May 13 2017 - Leonard Fournette
  RB Leonard Fournette met with local media following his first practice and told them two things -- he's excited about having a big blocking fullback in front of him and he enjoys catching passes. Fournette will be one of the biggest running backs in the league next season. He played around 240 pounds with LSU a year ago but may drop 10 pounds and be around 230. As for the speculation that he isn't as adapt at catching the ball due to his low number of receptions (41 catches in 32 games) at LSU, Fournette downplayed the notion. "I've been catching so it's fun. It's fun," he said. "Really, you're getting the best people the ball in space, giving the team opportunities also, the player opportunities to make the play, to score. It's doing whatever the team needs, uplifting the team."


May 1 2017 - Blake Bortles
  QB Blake Bortles had the fifth-year option on his contract picked up for the 2018 season. Bortles, the Jaguars' first-round selection (third overall) in 2014, would make approximately $20 million -- the average of the top 10 highest-paid quarterbacks -- in the last season of his rookie deal. It is guaranteed for injury only until the first day of the 2018 league year in March before it becomes fully guaranteed. Bortles' performance dropped off in 2016 after his breakout season in 2015.


Mar 22 2017 - Mychal Rivera
  TE Mychal Rivera was signed to a contract by Jacksonville. Terms of the deal were not disclosed by the team for Rivera, but Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network reported it's a one-year deal with a team option for a second season. Rivera endured his least productive of his four seasons with the Oakland Raiders in 2016, reeling in just 18 receptions for 192 yards and one touchdown. The 26-year-old's best campaign came in 2014, as he had 58 catches for 534 yards and four scores.


Mar 16 2017 - Josh McNary
  LB Josh McNary signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday. McNary recorded 14 tackles as well as a team-high nine special-teams tackles while playing in all 16 games last season for the Indianapolis Colts.


Mar 10 2017 - Calais Campbell
  DL Calais Campbell, a free agent formerly with Arizona, agreed to a four-year, $60 million deal with Jacksonville. Campbell played in all 16 games last season with the Cardinals, recording eight sacks, two forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries -- including a 53-yard return for a touchdown. The 30-year-old has collected 501 tackles and 56.5 sacks while playing in 138 of 144 games during his nine-year career with the Cardinals. He also earned Arizona's Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award in 2011 and 2014.


Mar 10 2017 - A.J. Bouye
  CB A.J. Bouye, a free agent, agreed to a deal with the Jags reported to be worth $67.5 million over five years with $26 million guaranteed.


Mar 9 2017 - Barry Church
  S Barry Church is expected to sign with the Jaguars after the new league year begins at 4 p.m. ET on Thursday. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Wednesday that "barring a change of heart," the 29-year-old Church will land with the Jaguars on four-year deal worth more than $6 million per year. Church, an undrafted free agent in 2010, spent his entire career in Dallas, becoming a full-time starter in 2013. In 2016, he made 85 total tackles and two interceptions. The 6-foot-2, 218-pound Church has five interceptions, 488 tackles and 16 passes defended during his seven-year career.


Mar 1 2017 - Blake Bortles
  QB Blake Bortles needs to get better and to do that, the Jacksonville Jaguars must improve around him. "I see Blake Bortles as our quarterback," first-year Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said at the Indiana Convention Center. New team president Tom Coughlin said the improvement starts with bolstering pass protection. Bortles was sacked 34 times in 2016, when he played with multiple shoulder injuries, after being taken down 51 times in 2015.


Feb 16 2017 - Branden Albert
  LT Branden Albert is expected to be released by the Miami Dolphins, according to multiple reports on Thursday. The two-time Pro Bowler, who started 12 games this past season, has the team's third-highest salary cap number in 2017. The 32-year-old was slated to cost $10.6 million against the cap for the upcoming season, but the projected move would save the Dolphins $7.2 million in cap space. Albert has played in 35 games during his three seasons in Miami but will give way to Laremy Tunsil, who is expected to be shuffled into the starting left tackle spot.


Feb 15 2017 - Arrelious Benn
  WR Arrelious Benn signed a one-year contract. Benn, a former second-round draft pick of Tampa Bay in 2010, appeared in 15 games for the Jaguars and caught five passes for 116 yards and one touchdown. Injuries kept him off the field the previous three seasons.


Feb 15 2017 - Chad Henne
  QB Chad Henne agreed to a restructured contract with Jacksonville. Henne signed a two-year deal worth $8.8 million prior to last season and was carrying a cap number of $3.25 million for 2017 before the team reworked his contract. A veteran of nine seasons, Henne has served as the backup to Blake Bortles for the past three seasons. Henne started 13 games for Jacksonville in 2013 but appeared in only one game last season and did not attempt a pass.


Feb 15 2017 - Abry Jones
  DT Abry Jones was re-signed by the Jaguars to a four-year contract before he could test unrestricted free agency. The deal for the 25-year-old Jones is worth $16 million and includes a guarantee of $6.5 million. The 6-4, 318-pound Jones has appeared in 54 games with 11 starts since originally signing with the Jaguars as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2013 out of Georgia. He owns 96 total tackles, 5.5 sacks, 10 tackles for loss and four passes defensed. In 2016, Jones started a career-high nine games and finished with 32 tackles.


Jan 4 2017 - Branden Albert
  LT Branden Albert has been the best lineman in the last few games. But Albert will have a challenge this week going against DE Stephon Tuitt, who has 4.0 sacks and a team-best 13 quarterback pressures.


Jan 2 2017 - Bryan Walters
  WR Bryan Walters continued his impressive play in the second half of the season. In his final five games this year, Walters had 22 receptions for 217 yards. He had just two catches for 14 yards in his other five games earlier in the season.


Jan 2 2017 - Corey Grant
  RB Corey Grant had a 57-yard touchdown run in the Indianapolis game, the longest of the season for the Jaguars. His previous longest run in his two seasons with the club was 9 yards.


Jan 2 2017 - Yannick Ngakoue
  DE Yannick Ngakoue established a rookie franchise record for sacks when he recorded his eighth of the season against Indianapolis on Sunday. That bettered the seven that Tony Brackens had recorded in his rookie season with the Jaguars.


Jan 2 2017 - Tashaun Gipson
  FS Tashaun Gipson was outspoken following the Jaguars loss to the Colts, saying the Jaguars didn't use him properly this season. Gipson was a free-agent signee from Cleveland during the offseason. "This (was) probably the toughest season I've had to face from a lot of different standpoints," Gipson said. "It's been a frustrating year, all in all. Hopefully we get somebody in here that can see me -- maybe I wasn't valued enough here. I'm just as much to blame about this season as anybody in the locker room."


Jan 2 2017 - Jason Myers
  PK Jason Myers was headed for a record season of field-goal kicking for the Jaguars but missed on two of his four kicks in the finale against the Colts. Myers had been good on 36 of his last 41 kicks dating back to mid-season a year ago before the two misses.


Jan 2 2017 - Chris Ivory
  RB Chris Ivory missed Sunday's game with a hamstring injury. It was the fifth game during this season that Ivory missed due to injuries. He finished with 439 rushing yards after a 1,000-yard season a year ago with the New York Jets.


Jan 2 2017 - Dan Skuta
  OLB Dan Skuta blocked a punt in the Indianapolis game, the first such block by a Jaguars player this season. The Jaguars got the ball at the 30-yard line with less than two minutes remaining but could only push across a field goal to take a 3-point lead at the time.


Jan 2 2017 - A.J. Bouye
  CB A.J. Bouye (groin) is expected back for Saturday's playoff game against Oakland. Bouye already threw down the gauntlet, acknowledging motivation from doubters as his team enters the playoffs. "A lot of people sleep on us," Bouye said. "You try not to pay attention to what people are saying outside, but I know people are saying, first round, we're out. Blah, blah, blah. We're not worried about that. This game is all about respect. When you don't respect certain people on our team, it's basically a shot at us, too. We take that and we use that on the field."


Jan 2 2017 - Brandon Linder
  C Brandon Linder (concussion) was ruled out in the first quarter.


Jan 2 2017 - Dan Skuta
  LB Dan Skuta blocked a Pat McAfee punt to give the Jaguars the ball at the Colts' 30 with the score tied at 17 and 1:54 remaining.

Dec 29 2016 - Johnathan Cyprien
  S Johnathan Cyprien has recorded 120 tackles this year, second most on the team (Paul Posluszny leads with 127). It's the most that Cyprien has ever had in his four seasons with the Jaguars. Cyprien is in his fourth and final season of his four-year rookie contract and the Jaguars have yet to offer him a new deal.

Dec 28 2016 - Kelvin Beachum
  OT Kelvin Beachum drew praise for his play last Sunday from interim coach Doug Marrone, who is also the Jaguars' offensive line coach. "I think he's been struggling with trying to overcome the injuries. I think it's very difficult if you come into a season and you have to keep maintaining yourself. Our trainers, Kelvin and (assistant line coach) John Benton have done a good job of really working him in during the week."


Dec 27 2016 - Gannon Sinclair
  TE Gannon Sinclair was signed to the practice squad by the Jacksonville Jaguars..


Dec 27 2016 - Sean Porter
