The Jaguars on Sunday announced team suspensions for CB Jalen Ramsey and DE Dante Fowler. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the moves come as a result of "violating team rules and conduct unbecoming of a Jaguars football player." Fowler reportedly got into multiple scuffles with teammate DE Yannick Ngakoue in practice, while Ramsey's misstep appears to have been his actions toward the media following the practice fights. The 2 have reportedly been suspended for a week, which could include the 2nd preseason game. The situations likely won't affect either's standing for the regular season or the team's defense on whole. It is just the latest issue for Fowler, though, who has already been suspended for Week 1 by the league and only came off the PUP list Saturday. The former early 1st-round pick already saw the team refuse the 5th-year option (for 2019) on his rookie contract.
The Jaguars are hiring Doug Pederson as their next HC, according to multiple reports. Pederson, of course, spent 5 seasons at the helm in Philadelphia. He piloted the Eagles to a 13-3 record and Super Bowl victory in his 2nd season and finished with a 42-37-1 record (including a 4-11-1 final season). Philly's offenses ranked 14th or lower in yards in 4 of Pederson's 5 seasons and 16th or lower in scoring in 3 of 5 years. We'll see how he fills out the rest of the staff and what that staff has to say about the returning players. We'll also see whether Jacksonville retains free-agent WR D.J. Chark.
The Jaguars on Friday placed CB Shaq Griffin on the COVID list. They also activated DE Josh Allen, LB Myles Jack and LB Damien Wilson, among others.
Jaguars rookie CB Tyson Campbell (toe) is inactive for today's game against the Dolphins. Jacksonville will also be without LB Myles Jack, who is out with a back injury. Jack's absence boosts the IDP upside for LB Damien Wilson.
The Jaguars have hired Urban Meyer as HC. It'll be his first foray into the NFL after spending over 30 years in the college ranks. Meyer most recently served as Ohio State's HC from 2012-2018, leading the Buckeyes to an 83-9 record and 1 national championship. He also won 2 titles among 6 seasons as Florida's HC and spent 2 years before that as HC at Utah. Meyer was reportedly infatuated with the idea of coaching incoming rookie QB Trevor Lawrence. (Who wouldn't be?) ESPN's Jeremy Fowler hears that Meyer is eyeing Scott Linehan as his OC, although that move isn't official yet.
The Jaguars have fired HC Doug Marrone, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Marrone went 10-6 in his 1st full season at the helm but totaled just 12 wins over the past 3 years. Jacksonville has already been linked to former Ohio State HC Urban Meyer. Whoever gets the gig figures to be working with Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence.
