    Good luck to Chastin with Jaguars. My guess is he’ll realize that he would rather have Graham Harrell throwing him balls than Luke McCown. He was good but certainly not unlosable. I’d much rather have Tori Gurley’s size and special teams ability.

    I hope the bring Kerry Taylor back to fill the spot, I thought he showed some flashes. Good luck Chastin.

    West leaving was predictable. With Pickett injured and Neal out for awhile are there any fat guys they can bring in?

  • Lucas

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but teams signing a guy from another team’s practice squad must have him on their 53, right?

      Yes, and for a minimum of 3 weeks…

        Al, I haven’t been watching, did Jacksonville lose someone to injury(s)?
        They may need to improve fast to save their coach’s job.

          According to some Jaguar forums, they were without Jason hill yesterday and other receivers are battling injuries, also. Rookie Cecil Shorts was their #2 yesterday.
