I cover the Jaguars for ESPN's NFL Nation. Usually the shortest person in the pressbox.

Who are the 10 highest-paid Jaguars in 2015?

espn.go.com — JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Five of the six free agents the Jacksonville Jaguars signed earlier this month are among the team's highest-paid players in 2015. Tight end Julius Thomas, defensive end Jared Odrick and right tackle Jermey Parnell are the team's top three earners when it comes to cash value, which combines base salary and bonuses.

Should Randy Gregory's failed drug test scare off the Jaguars?

espn.go.com — JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The NFL draft has always been a crap shoot. No matter how good a player is in college and how well he interviews and tests at the combine, there's no way to be certain what kind of pro they'll be.

Mistake in Jaguars draft cap fixed

espn.go.com — JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- No need to keep this under your hat, Jaguars fans: The incorrect skyline on the team's official draft cap has been fixed.

Paul Posluszny isn't going anywhere

espn.go.com — JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- One of the questions that I get over and over on Twitter and whenever I encounter Jacksonville Jaguars fans is: When are they going to cut Poz? Fans see middle linebacker Paul Posluszny's struggles in pass coverage and the fact that his cap number in 2015 is $9.5 million and $7.5 million in 2016 and just assume it's a matter of days before he's released.

No surprise Jaguars' Gus Bradley giving Bernard Pierce another chance

espn.go.com — JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Giving running back Bernard Pierce a second chance is nothing out of the ordinary for Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley. After all, he and the franchise have stuck by and tried to help troubled receiver Justin Blackmon for the past two seasons.

2015 draft picks: Jacksonville Jaguars

espn.go.com — JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars did not receive any compensatory draft picks and have seven selections in the 2015 NFL draft, which will be held April 30 to May 2 in Chicago.

Jacksonville Jaguars mailbag Part I

espn.go.com — Got questions about the Jacksonville Jaguars? I'll try to answer a representative selection of them every weekend. Submit your questions via Twitter to @ESPNdirocco. @ESPNdirocco: If the OL improves and Blake Bortles fixes some issues, I think the Jaguars should be able to challenge a .500 record in 2015.

Who are the Jaguars' best basketball players?

espn.go.com — JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Earlier this year, the Jacksonville Jaguars' social media team had some fun on Twitter when it asked fans to submit the five Jaguars players they would pick for a basketball team. With the NCAA tournament already rolling, I thought I'd take that idea just a bit further.

Jacksonville Jaguars

espn.go.com — JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- With free agency into its second week and the Jacksonville Jaguars not likely to find a starter at this point, it's the perfect time to take a stab at projecting the starting lineup in 2015. There is one caveat: The projection includes only players on the current roster.
