I was keeping an eye on him

Jags have some big money contracts coming up

Some thing has to give Odd man out in Jacksonville

Allen Robinson 4 - $58 million ?
Marqise Lee 4 - 42 million ?
Allen Hurns WR Jaguars 6012 198 4.55 UDFA = 5 - $40 million no dead cap in 2018

So I am watching
Aaron Colvin CB Jaguars = Nickle CB
I hoping he slip through the cracks

This is a balanced team with adequate depth at all positions; in fact, we just released a good cornerback, a premium position no less...

Let's don't gamble on injured players. Oh, and cut Fleener! He isn't worth the money.

I don't see a team paying someone $22 million (QB Tag) to watch Brady play.

were do you start?

I could see an injury / retirement settlement with Fairley
Morstead has to be maxed out, right? Maybe an extension a slight discount

Fleener is the obvious candidate. Someone like Cameron Brate would be a much cheaper replacement and could be available
