Calais Campbell never had a preliminary agreement with Jacksonville

The pre-free agency negotiating period had an interesting wrinkle, via the negotiations that ultimately brought defensive lineman Calais Campbell to Jacksonville. After multiple reports emerged that Campbell had an agreement in place with the Jaguars, reporters emerged that Campbell may be changing his mind and going to Denver instead. Campbell then picked Jacksonville over Denver.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, it didn’t quite happen that way. There was no agreement in principle with the Jaguars. As the source put it, a deal “was not even close to being done.” At all times, Campbell was considering offers from Jacksonville, Denver, and Washington.

In the end, he chose the Jaguars and stuck to it. For a team that doesn’t win enough games on the field, a victory in a three-way showdown with Denver and Washington surely felt good.

    Only one thing counts in this life: Get them to sign on the line which is dotted. You hear me?

    The equation looks like this:

    No state income tax+mild winters-Elway=Jacksonville

    That’s a good pickup for them. They need veteran leadership on defense.

    Vastly overpaid.

    Hey valentino, you know the #1 reason the most sought after free agent in the history of the NFL signed with Denver? Elway. Just keep acquiring other teams scraps, maybe soon enough you losers might be able to remove the tarps in your stadium.

    Ahhh I should’ve known. Another “fan” of the greatest dynasty in the history of the NFL that can’t enjoy the latest SB victory and has to bag on others teams for no apparent reason. Must be the fact TB and BB can’t win in Denver and it REALLY bothers you. Pretty pathetic dude. But hey, good job on your team’s success.

    Better hope they don’t ever make it to 11, or you won’t be counting anymore. Unless of course you take your shoes and socks off.

    Jacksonville- Where NFL free agents go to die.

  11. MostlyRight says: Mar 12, 2017 7:45 PM

    Jacksonville got a great player who should have several years of his high level of play left in him. But most of all you got one of the greatest guys in the NFL. His big deep booming voice, bigger smile, and the guy is great on radio. We’ll miss you in AZ CC but Cards fans knew this day was coming. Too many big contracts and not a year with cap room.

    As a Jags fan winning the free agency race means squat. They have to win on the field. I really think that are heading up…I know can’t go down any more.

    As for all you folks that think the team is not supported..open your eyes. It was one of the largest stadiums in the nfl…that is why there were tarps in the past. No blackouts for as long as I can remember. If they don’t begin winning, then we have another discussion on our hands because the fan base is tired of losing. At least we draw better than the other Florida teams which no one seems to know or care.

    The jags won because money always wins. They offered the most and won the bidding war.

    it really is amazing that on every post there is always a Cheater fan who comes in and acts they are superior and belittles others. Only thing worse than a sore loser is a sore winner. Also tells me these guys all have inferiority complexes.

    We are an offseason dynasty! We are the New England Patriots of the offseason!

    Don’t we get a trophy or something?
