The Jaguars have $ 5.2 million tied up in tight end Kyle Brady, who had the third-highest salary cap numbers in the league at his position last year. If they cut Brady after June 1, they'd be charged $2.2 million this season and $1.1 million in 2004.

The team doesn't appear to want to cut him like previously thought. Instead, the Jags and his agent are currently in contract negotiates contract because the team wants to lower his $5.2 million cap figure, either by giving him an extension or restructuring the deal.

"Hopefully, we can get something done," Brady said. "It's all been going in a civilized manner. I'd rather get a long-term extension. I've restructured every off-season [since 1999] and that's what put me in this huge cap number now."

Last year with the Jaguars, the eight-year pro out of Penn State caught 43 passes for 461 yards and four touchdowns.
