NFL Notes: Jaguars, Jets, Lions, Rams, & Seahawks

Jaguars Jaguars GM David Caldwell explained that their decision to decline OT Luke Joeckel‘s fifth-year option doesn’t mean they won’t sign him to an extension after the 2016 season. “If he plays great next year, we’ll pay him, but for us to be locked into that number didn’t make sense,” Caldwell told Sirius XM NFL Radio. “It wasn’t about him. I told him we want...

Seahawks Sign QB Jake Heaps

The Seattle Seahawks officially signed QB Jake Heaps to a contract on Monday. This is notable, considering that the Seahawks had just Russell Wilson on their roster at quarterback entering the draft last week.

Baldwin doesn't want anyone wearing Lynch's old number

The Seattle Seahawks are hoping they found a replacement for the recently retired Marshawn Lynch in this 2016 NFL Draft. After all, the team did select three running backs during the draft. This doesn’t mean any one player can replace Lynch, who was the heart and soul of Seattle’s offense for a good five-year span. Making sure everyone knows this, wide receiver Doug Baldwin...

Germain Ifedi brings hope to Seahawks OL

Germain Ifedi may be the last best hope to save Russell Wilson. Coming into the 2016 offseason, the Seattle Seahawks offensive line was already in tatters. The unit performed well during one brief stretch in the second half of the 2015 regular season. Otherwise, it was a dismal state of affairs. Wilson was pummeled repeatedly during Seattle’s slow 2-4 start to the year, and the...

Two NFL draft articles in two days? Like I said yesterday, the speculation during this time of the year is rampant, so why not?
