#1 Regardless, if Coughlin wants to coach the Jaguars von linchao 20.01.2020 03:46

The Jacksonville Jaguars are more likely than not going to move on from quarterback Blake Bortles in 2019 Jalen Ramsey Jersey , according to a recent report by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.The news isn’t all that surprising as I wrote about two weeks ago when Bortles was benched for backup Cody Kessler. Once that move was made to send him to the bench, the Jaguars were in essence pulling the plug on the Bortles era.The real question will be how they handle dealing with the three-year, $54 million contract that Bortles signed this past offseason. The deal included $26.5 million guaranteed with a $15 million signing bonus. Bortles cap hit for 2019 would be $21 million, so a trade seems highly unlikely unless you’re willing to give up a premium draft pick like the Houston Texasn did with the Brock Osweiler deal. The Jaguars could be trading up for a quarterback in the 2019 NFL Draft, another reason it seems unlikely.More realistically the Jaguars will cut Bortles after the season and just absorb the cap hit. There are two ways they could go about it https://www.jaguarsfanstore.com/Leonard-Fournette-Jersey , each with its perks. First, the team could just outright cut him and take the $16.5 million dead money cap hit all at once in 2019. This would free up $4.5 million in cap room and the deal also includes up to $6.5 million in off-set language. What that means is that if Bortles signs a deal with another team for $6.5 million, the Jaguars save an additional $6.5 million. If he signs for more than that the Jaguars would save up to $6.5 million.The other option would be to designate Bortles a post-June 1 cut, which would split the dead money between the 2019 and 2020 salary cap. Doing so would save the Jaguars an additional $5 million in cap savings, but the catch is that cap savings would not reflect until after June 1 Keelan Cole Color Rush Jersey , which is well after the first two waves of NFL Free Agency and the NFL Draft. If you’re not planning on doing much in free agency that’s fine, but you’re also just pushing dead money out to the future.The best option for the Jaguars is to just rip the band-aid off and get it over with, dealing with the dead money all in 2019. That clears it allup by the next season and you’re ready to go again, presumably with a quarterback on their rookie contract. With Jaguars coach Doug Marrone’s status squarely in the “nobody knows” category, some are wondering whether the man who runs the football operation in Jacksonville would stay very close to home when hiring Marrone’s replacement Malik Jackson Jersey , if Marrone ultimately is fired.A question being asked in league circles is this: Would Jaguars V.P. of football operations Tom Coughlin hire himself to coach the team?The 72-year-old Coughlin last coached in 2015, his final season with the Giants. After a year out of football, Coughlin emerged as the top executive in Jacksonville.The Jaguars would be required to comply with the Rooney Rule before hiring Coughlin, unless Coughlin’s contract contains a previously-unknown “coach-in-waiting” provision.Regardless, if Coughlin wants to coach the Jaguars https://www.jaguarsfanstore.com/Cam-Robinson-Jersey , he’ll likely find a way to do it. The question is whether he wants it.
