    Youth Blake Bortles Jersey

    Cam Robinson injury: The free agent left tackle market is slim As Jacksonville Jaguars fans Cheap Leonard Fournette Jersey , we are all feeling good right about now, after the Jaguars dismantled the New England Patriots in gate-to-wire fashion. However, there is bad news following the game. Starting left tackle Cam Robinson has been lost for the season with a torn ACL. This is most unfortunate for a second-year player looking to ascend at one of the toughest positions to play in the NFL. I wish him a speedy recovery. What will the Jaguars do in Robinson’s absence, though? Josh Wells stepped in for Robinson, and was serviceable — the offensive line didn’t allow a single sack. However, is he the long term solution? We’ve seen his struggles, but he may have to be based on who is available in the free agent market. Of course, the Jaguars can make a trade, but that’s a different conversation. Consequently, the left tackle free agent market doesn’t look very strong, as expected. According to Spotrac, the available left tackles are the following players: Chris HairstonHairston is a veteran who has played in 74 career games with 31 starts. He offers versatility as a swing tackle and has even played guard. However, he has medical concerns and that is the reason he has not been signed to any team. Hairston has dealt with what is believed to be blood clots and was placed on the reserve/non-football illness list for the San Diego Chargers last season. Khalif Barnes Barnes, a former second-round pick for the Jaguars in 2005, is 36-years-old. He has played in 154 career games, with 117 starts — including 57 starts for Jacksonville. In 2016, Barnes was off-and-on the New Orleans Saints roster, but didn’t play in any contests. He appeared in three games for the Arizona Cardinals last season with zero starts. Bringing in an old player with very limited playing time over the past two seasons wouldn’t make a lot of sense. Will Beatty Beatty is another player well over the age of 30 (33), but has plenty of playing experience (89 games, 63 starts). That said, also similar to Barnes Cheap A. J. Cann Jersey , Beatty has not seen a lot of action lately, with just seven game appearances in 2016-2017 combined and zero starts in that span. Beatty is a member of two Super Bowl championship teams: last year’s Philadelphia Eagles and the 2011-2012 New York Giants. He did not start either game, however.Nick BectonI am not going to pretend to know a whole lot about Becton, but he came into the league as an undrafted free agent from Virginia Tech in 2013 and latched onto the San Diego Chargers’ practice squad. He has spent the majority of his career bouncing from one team’s practice squad to the next ever since. He’s played in just six games in his career, five of which with the Chicago Bears in 2015. He is not a viable option.Isaiah Battle Battle may be an intriguing option as a developmental project, but just like Becton, he is more than likely not going to be somebody the Jaguars look to bring in. Battle was drafted in the 2015 Supplemental Draft by the St. Louis Rams. He has also spent time with the Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks. Battle has never appeared in an NFL game. Not going to happen in Jacksonville, folks. I’ve also heard people throwing out the idea of moving Jermey Parnell to the left side and starting the rookie Will Richardson on the right side. I don’t see this happening at all. While Parnell spent a short amount of time at left tackle for the Dallas Cowboys, he has played exclusively at right tackle for the majority of his career, including each of the past five seasons. He has done well there with Jacksonville. It is a much more difficult task going from the right side to the left side— different technique, different footwork, usually playing against better pass rushers, etc. — than the average fan may think. Plus, is Richardson even ready to face NFL competition as a starter? That is not yet determined. If the Jaguars are thinking about moving Parnell, which once again is doubtful, there are a few more available options at right tackle, but still, these guys are free agents for a reason. There are guards on the market who have experience playing tackle as well — and yes that includes Luke Joeckel, but I seriously doubt he’ll be returning to Duval. So, the pickings are slim at one of the most important positions on the field. Whether the Jaguars stick with Wells, move Parnell over Womens Marcell Dareus Jersey , make a trade or sign a free agent, things may be bleak here. It will be an area to monitor throughout the season.Comparing “Sacksonville” to the greats: 2002 Tampa Bay Buccaneers We keep hearing about how elite the “Sacksonville” defense is and how they can carry what is by all regards a fairly average offense deep into the playoffs, so I wanted to travel back into the annals of history and compare their personnel to some of the legendary NFL defenses of yesteryear. This is the second of a four-part installment that I will be doing across the month of September, and this episode mirrors the 2002 Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense. Last week, we covered the 2002 Baltimore Ravens. Below you’ll find 11 head-to-head match ups where I include each player’s statistics at the same point in their career to illustrate how our young players are tracking against some all-time greats. LDE | Calais Campbell vs. Greg SpiresSTAT SNAPSHOT COMPARISON (5 SEASONS): Campbell: 27.5 sacks; 200 tackles; 4 forced fumbles; 2 fumbles recoveredSpires: 17.0 sacks; 85 tackles; 6 forced fumbles; 3 fumbles recoveredSomewhat of a journeyman, Spires was already on his third NFL team despite being a third round pick in the 1998 draft by the New England Patriots. Spires was never a dominant defensive end, but was a valuable role player who could help set the edge against the run and had the benefit of Warren Sapp and Booger McFarland taking double teams inside. Spires only had 3.5 regular season sacks at left defensive end before adding another pair in the playoffs, and you have to think Calais will soundly eclipse this number in 2018. This battle soundly goes to the Mayor of Duval.Advantage: Calais CampbellLDT | Marcell Dareus vs. Anthony “Booger” McFarlandSTAT SNAPSHOT COMPARISON (4 SEASONS): Dareus: 28.5 sacks; 139 tackles; 2 forced fumbles; 2 fumbles recoveredMcFarland: 12.5 sacks; 77 tackles; 1 forced fumble; 1 fumble recovered Now famous for his Monday Night Football gig where he hovers over the field in the Snot Rocket, Booger McFarland was a very valuable nose tackle who allowed Warren Sapp to be the dominant player he was. McFarland only contributed 1.5 sacks in ten games during the 2002 season, but make no mistake about it, his presence as a run stuffer wasn’t reflected in the stat sheet. McFarland missed the first four games of the 2002 season with a broken forearm and then missed the playoffs with a broken right foot against the Detroit Lions, allowing Chartric Darby to get the start. Because of the injury and Dareus having two Pro Bowls under his belt by his fifth season, Dareus gets the nod.Advantage: Marcell DareusRDT | Malik Jackson vs. Warren SappSTAT SNAPSHOT COMPARISON (6 SEASONS): Jackson: 29.0 sacks; 167 tackles; 6 forced fumbles; 3 fumbles recoveredSapp: 58.5 sacks; 203 tackles; 12 forced fumbles; 6 fumbles recoveredSapp was Aaron Donald before Aaron Donald, and the seven-time Pro Bowler and four-time first team All Pro was the engine of the defensive line for the Bucs. Malik Jackson may arguably be a top five three-technique this season in the NFL, but Hall of Famer Warren Sapp he is not.Advantage: Warren Sapp RDE | Yannick Ngakoue vs. Simeon RiceSTAT SNAPSHOT COMPARISON (2 SEASONS): Ngakoue: 20.0 sacks; 44 tackles; 10 forced fumbles; 4 fumbles recoveredRice: 17.5 sacks; 75 tackles; 2 forced fumbles; 1 fumble recoveredAs much as we love Yannick in Duval, it’s too early in his career to give him the point in this match up against a borderline Hall of Fame player in Simeon Rice. A third overall pick for the Arizona Cardinals in the 2016 draft, Rice had eight NFL seasons with double-digit sacks and his 122 career sacks puts him at number 20 all-time. Jaguars fans should be highly encouraged about Yannick’s lead in the two year stat snapshot, but he has a tall task ahead of him this season to match Rice’s 15.5 sacks in 2002, which earned him first-team All Pro honors and a Super Bowl ring.Advantage: Simeon RiceSLB | Leon Jacobs vs. Alshermond SingletonSTAT SNAPSHOT COMPARISON (N/A):The strong side linebacker spot will be a consistent question mark in this series with Leon Jacobs playing as a true rookie, but Singleton had a solid ten year NFL career and racked up over 200 tackles, mainly as a special teamer. In 2002 Youth Dede Westbrook Jersey , Singleton had 43 tackles, one sack, one forced fumble and an interception if you want to establish a baseline for Jacobs this season at the SAM spot. Advantage: Alshermond Singleton?MLB | Myles Jack vs. Shelton QuarlesSTAT SNAPSHOT COMPARISON (2 SEASONS): Jack: 82 tackles; 2.5 sacks; 0 forced fumbles; 2 fumbles recovered; 0 interceptionsQuarles: 10 tackles; 1.0 sack; 0 forced fumbles; 2 fumbles recovered; 0 interceptionsConsidering Quarles did not even earn his first NFL start until his third year, Myles Jack is already light years ahead of the former Vanderbilt linebacker. Quarles had a Pro Bowl year in 2002, compiling 74 tackles and two interceptions next to Derrick Brooks, but Jack already has a head start with 10 tackles and a house call in his first game as the full-time middle linebacker this season.Advantage: Myles JackWLB | Telvin Smith vs. Derrick BrooksSTAT SNAPSHOT COMPARISON (4 SEASONS): Smith: 345 tackles; 6.5 sacks; 4 forced fumbles; 5 fumbles recovered; 7 interceptionsBrooks: 377 tackles; 2.5 sacks; 6 forced fumbles, 1 fumbles recovered, 4 interceptionsNole on Nole crime! We know Telvin Smith is married to the game, but he’s not married to the Hall of Fame as Derrick Brooks is. While this a no brainer at this point in time, the snap shot comparison between Brooks and the best Florida State weak side linebacker in the NFL since Brooks is鈥?interesting.Advantage: Derrick BrooksCB | Jalen Ramsey vs. Ronde BarberSTAT SNAPSHOT COMPARISON (2 SEASONS): Ramsey: 6 interceptions; 31 pass break ups; 107 tacklesBarber: 2 interceptions; 0 pass break ups; 63 tacklesBarber was a third round draft pick but only played one game as a rookie in 1997. In 2002, Barber had three sacks and two interceptions during the regular season, and if Ramsey doesn’t dismantle those numbers this year, it will be a major disappointment by his standards. If Ramsey is already this good at age 23, imagine where he will be at 27, which is the year Ronde won his ring. I’ll probably catch a lot of flack here from Bucs fans due to the long, steady body of work for Barber, but I stand with our king and they can go argue with their pirate hats.Advantage: Jalen RamseyCB | A.J. Bouye vs. Brian KellySTAT SNAPSHOT COMPARISON (5 SEASONS): Bouye: 12 interceptions; 50 pass break ups; 169 tacklesKelly: 11 interceptions; 25 pass break ups; 201 tacklesBrian Kelly was a very solid cornerback and I vividly remember his eight-interception 2002 season. Kelly was critical for the Bucs due to the fact that teams were constantly throwing his way to try and avoid Ronde Barber. Kelly did not register his first pass deflection until his fourth season (despite oddly having one interception in each of his first three seasons), but added 21 pass break ups during the Bucs Super Bowl run. Bouye might not match eight interceptions this season, but he may not have to with the other players in this secondary picking up the slack. The match up is very close, but Bouye has one more Pro Bowl than Kelly, so A.J. gets the point.Advantage: A.J. BouyeSS | Barry Church vs. John LynchSTAT SNAPSHOT COMPARISON (8 SEASONS): Church: 9 interceptions; 415 tackles; 1.5 sacks; 8 forced fumbles Lynch: 15 interceptions; 388 tackles; 4.5 sacks; 6 forced fumblesLike Sapp and Brooks Youth Blake Bortles Jersey , Lynch is a Hall of Famer and so badly beats Church in this match up that they should almost be awarded a second point. The fifteen-year veteran and nine-time Pro Bowler finished with 26 interceptions and over 700 tackles, so Church would have to play another eight years to come close to that type of production.Advantage: John LynchFS | Tashaun Gipson vs. Dexter JacksonSTAT SNAPSHOT COMPARISON (6 SEASONS): Gipson: 19 interceptions; 243 tackles; 0 sacks; 1 forced fumbleJackson: 13 interceptions; 219 tackles; 2.5 sacks; 4 forced fumblesTo be quite frank, Gipson and Jackson are very similar ball hawking free safeties with fairly close numbers after six seasons. If Gipson can end up becoming the Super Bowl MVP with two game-clinching interceptions in Atlanta, I will give him the edge, but until that happens, Jackson gets the point. Advantage: Dexter JacksonFinal Score: Bucs 6 Jaguars 5The Bucs were truly a formidable defense with Hall of Fame players at each level in Warren Sapp, Derrick Brooks, and John Lynch. Add in some very good players who had remarkable seasons in Simeon Rice (15.5 sacks), Brian Kelly (eight interceptions) and Dexter Jackson (Super Bowl MVP), and it’s difficult to make an argument that the Jaguars have a better unit. Even Ronde Barber is a Hall of Fame semifinalist, despite that position battle going to Ramsey for the purposes of this article.Statistically, the 2002 Bucs pass defense may have been the greatest to ever grace the gridiron, and their 155 passing yards per game allowed, 10 passing touchdowns allowed, and 131 first downs allowed are all benchmarks that will be difficult to exceed. To put it in perspective, the 2017 Jaguars allowed 169.9 passing yards per game, 17 passing touchdowns allowed, and 143 first downs allowed. If the Jags can turn it up just a bit this year, they can get close to hanging with the 2002 Bucs, but they are already a little behind after allowing 210 yards to Eli Manning in week one.Stay tuned for next week’s edition of the All Time Greats when we compare the Jags to the 2013 Seahawks.
