Durant High on Lions List
Jaguars linebacker Justin Durant is likely to earn the title, "former Jaguars linebacker Justin Durant." Jacksonville is looking to go in a different direction after the former second-round pick has spent four non-spectacular seasons wearing teal. The free agent to be is apparently high on the Detroit Lions wish list, according to this Fox Sports Detroit report.
Our take: Justin Durant has the potential to be a very good player and perhaps a change of scenery will be just what the doctor ordered. /b>
Harvey and Jones Earn Least Valuable "Honors"
In Bill Barnwell's Grantland.com column, he listed the 25 least valuable players in the NFL. The Jaguars were well represented as former eighth-overall pick defensive end Derrick Harvey (#19) and cornerback David Jones (#7) each made the list.
Our take: It's very likely that Jaguars fans will not see either Harvey or Jones in a game that counts ever again. What's troubling is Barnwell's glaring omission of Don Carey, who could be the worst safety in NFL history. /b>
Jaguars Hamstrung By Lockout
With a rookie quarterback and fairly young roster, the Jaguars need as many offseason reps as possible. They're certainly not alone as division-mate Tennessee is in the same boat with no viable option at quarterback other than first-round pick Jake Locker. Find out about the AFC teams that are affected both positively and negatively by the lockout.
Our take: The Jaguars shouldn't let a limited offseason dupe them into paying quarterback David Garrard another $8 million for yet another .500 campaign.
