Dontari Poe visiting Jaguars, who stay busy

Dontari Poe is apparently intent on taking the tour, and maximizing his value.

So he’s making a stop where free agents go to get paid.

Via Tiffany Blackmon of the NFL Network, the Chiefs defensive tackle is visiting the Jaguars today, as is running back Latavius Murray.

The Jaguars have already brought in defensive end Calais Campbell, but they’ve shuffled the line, cutting Roy Miller and Sen’Derrick Marks.

But Poe left Indianapolis, after many thought he’d get a deal done with a familiar face (former Chiefs personnel man Chris Ballard, now the Colts General Manager). Now we’ll see if the NFL’s open wallet can find a little more for one of the top players left in free agency.

  1. The only thing that surprises me more than how much the Jags seem to spend every year on their free agent binges, is how little it keeps paying off for them on the field.

  2. Jags seem to front load these FA contracts to minimize the cap hit/dead money in subsequent years, so it’s not as bad as it looks.

    The last 4 years were the Gus Bradley years- good guy and all but… the players were on vacation. Marrone and Coughlin have already changed the culture so there should be an increased payoff from this binge.

    Jags were REAL smug about “building through draft and doing things the RIGHT way and not chasing Free Agents”. They were also real self congratulatory on “Blake is a rookie and not ready – he will sit and learn ALL year – because WE are the Jaguars and WE do things the right way”

    Bortles started at HALFTIME of GAME 3 his Rookie Year and they are THROWING MONEY at Free Agents.
    Shad Kahn is a huge phony too…London is our “international Initiative” because a 14B organization with revenue sharing still cant make poor old Jaguars profitable enough.

    The whole thing is romper room down here.

    Hopefully Coughlin can fix it.

  4. The Jaguars win the offseason each Spring, and then win 3 or 4 games in the Fall. I suspect this year will be no different, regardless of where Poe lands.
