The Jaguars have only two quarterbacks on the roster, and starter Blake Bortles is recovering from wrist surgery. Thus, Jacksonville needs another arm to go with Bortles and Cody Kessler.
Jacksonville worked out veteran quarterbacks Kellen Clemens and Austin Davis, Field Yates on ESPN reports.
Clemens spent the past four seasons with the Chargers. In 12 seasons, he has played 64 games and started 21. Clemens, 34, has an 8-13 record with a 54.9 completion percentage, 4,053 yards with 16 touchdowns and 21 interceptions.
Criticism of James was further fueled by a Miami “welcome rally” the following day at the team’s arena featuring cheerleaders, a brass band, plumes of white smoke, and LeBron inciting the capacity crowd by promising them “not two, not three, not four, not five, not six not seven [championships] …”
The stop in Tennessee is a bit of a homecoming chance for Matthews, who played his college football at Vanderbilt in Nashville.
A former second-round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles, Matthews spent last year with the Buffalo Bills after a trade last August. Matthews played in 10 games with seven starts and caught 25 passes for 282 yards and a touchdown. It was a down year for Matthews after posting at least 67 catches and over 800 yards in each of his three years in Philadelphia.
NFL free agency in 2018 did not need to officially start in order for the biggest moves to unofficially happen.
So which teams have made great signings and trades so far? Which players made out like bandits with their contracts? Although everybody is trying be a “winner,” history proves an open market is bound to create some “losers,” too.
McCallum played six seasons with the Raiders (1986, 1990-94), splitting carries with Hall of Famer Marcus Allen, while early on also fulfilling his commitment to the U.S. Naval Academy. His playing career ended in gruesome fashion: In the 1994 season-opener against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football, he suffered a dislocated knee, resulting in three torn ligaments and severe nerve and artery damage.
McCallum moved to Nevada shortly after his injury and now lives with his wife, Yvonne, and their four daughters in Henderson, a Las Vegas suburb. He loves the city. “Everyone’s looking to be friends,” he said. He also loves the Raiders, and, for years, envisioned bringing his new home and his former team together, but kept running into the same line of resistance.
