Malik Jackson in the offseason Black Niles Paul Jerseys , be it via straight up release or via a trade. The writing is on the wall and Jackson himself acknowledges what his situation is.“In my mind, if I’m third or fourth on the depth chart making $14.5 million to $15 million, I don’t see too much future for me in Jacksonville,” Jackson told Jon Reid of The Florida Times-Union on Wednesday. “I’m not trying to be a journeyman by any means. But it’s a business and soon as you try to forget that then it’s a rude awakening for sure.”The Jaguars would free up a good chunk of much needed cap space moving on from Jackson after the conclusion of the 2018 season, saving $11 million in cap room if they move on. In reality, Jackson’s massive free agent contract was always setup to be a two-year deal with a series of one-year deals after that in case it didn’t work or the team needed to move on. In this instance, I would frame it as the latter, as Jackson is still a good player but it’s simply just time to move on and save the space.To Jackson’s credit however, even though he likely knows the team will move on from him after this season, he’s still making the most of it and helping out where he can. “You see older guys get pushed out of the league and you don’t understand it but they’re still fighting,” Jackson told Reid. “For example, Peyton Manning when he got injured in Indy, but he was still teaching his guys and doing what he had to do to be a leader. I kind of learned that from him. I’m still trying to push guys and teach them. Whatever I’m going through doesn’t matter, the team is more important.”Jackson also indicated he knows as a pass rushing defensive tackle with only one sack on the season, the final three games are important for his impending resume to 31 other teams be it via trade market or as a free agent once again.Jackson, 28, was signed as a free agent during the 2016 offseason, receiving a six-year Niles Paul Jerseys 2019 , $85.5 million deal with $31.5 million guaranteed at closing. The move was largely praised when it was made, although notably expensive, but Jackson produced and played like he earned the money his first two seasons with the Jaguars, picking up 14.5 sacks in those two seasons as well as making the Pro Bowl.For whatever reason things just fell flat in 2018, much like the rest of the Jaguars team overall and it looks like both the team and Jackson are planning to move on in 2019.Todd Bowles on Jaguars’ 2-point conversion: ‘If they run it, we have to defend it’ No lead is safe in the NFL — not even if you’re up by two touchdowns with two minutes to go.The Jacksonville Jaguars found themselves up 25-12 (weird scoreline, it’s fine) and driving in New York Jets territory late in Sunday’s game. On third-and-1, Blake Bortles hit Dede Westbrook for a short pass over the middle and Westbrook took it to the 20-yard line. Bortles was having a Good Blake day so him completing passes was probably a better way to extend the drive and wind down the clock than running it with T.J. Yeldon.But at the end of Westbrook’s catch, Jamal Adams hit him after the whistle for an unnecessary roughness penalty. 10 more yards were tacked on — first down at the 10-yard line.Instead of kneeling so close to the goal line, offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett gave Yeldon the ball on first down. Two yard gain, eight yards away. Clock stopped with the two minute warning.Second down. Yeldon in the Wildcat formation. Four yard run. Four more to go.Third down. Yeldon (again) in the Wildcat formation. Three yard run. One more to go.Fourth down. Yeldon runs for the one yard touchdown.And to add insult to injury, the Jaguars opted to go for two instead of the extra point.Asked after the game what he thought about the Jaguars going for two with just 25 seconds left to play and up three scores, Todd Bowles was straightforward:“I don’t tell another guy how to coach his team,” Bowles said. “If they run it, we have to defend it.”It’s the right answer — if you don’t like the other team running up the score stop them from scoring.Asked after the game if he was trying to send a message, Doug Marrone was just as straightforward:“We’re not good enough to send a message right now.”No lead is safe in the NFL, not two touchdowns in an early season regular season game and not two touchdowns in the AFC Championship Game going into the fourth quarter.
