Coughlin won't commit to starting QB Bortles

New executive VP Tom Coughlin wouldn't commit to Blake Bortles as the Jaguars' starting QB in 2017, saying he has to cut down on turnovers.

Blake Bortles is the Jaguars' quarterback in 2017. Maybe. During a pre-combine news conference on Friday, Jaguars executive VP of football ops Tom Coughlin said Bortles has a lot of work to do entering his fourth season, especially in terms of turnovers. Bortles has turned the ball over an NFL-high 63 times (51 interceptions) since he was drafted third overall in 2014. Coughlin didn't completely commit to Bortles as the starter in '17, but didn't give an indication that the team would be moving away from Bortles, either.

One of biggest takeaways from Jaguars executive VP of football ops Tom Coughlin's news conference: the team needs to get much tougher physically and mentally. He stopped short of calling the team soft but said players need to do a better job of fighting through adversity, both with injuries and during games.

DE Odrick released after 2 seasons with Jags

Despite signing a five-year deal with Jacksonville in 2015, defensive end Jared Odrick was released by the Jaguars on Monday after just two years with the team.

DE Jared Odrick was due a $2 million roster bonus and would have had $3.5 million of his $6.5 million salary in 2017 guaranteed had he been on the Jaguars' roster on March 13. The move saves the Jaguars $8.5 million against the salary cap.

The Jaguars have released DE Jared Odrick after just two seasons with the team. Odrick signed a five-year, $42.5 million contract with $22.5 million guaranteed in 2015.

Is Julius Thomas worth trading for?

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Monday morning the Dolphins and Jaguars are discussing a trade that would send Thomas to Miami. The tight end's numbers have dipped since signing a five-year, $46 million deal with the Jags two years ago, including a 2016 season that ended on injured reserve.
