  Jaguars | James Robinson carried the load    Thu Jan 21, 10:19 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB James Robinson ranked sixth among running backs with 641 snaps played in 2020 despite missing the final two games with an ankle injury.

Footballguys view: Robinson was a find for the Jaguars. He was undrafted coming out of Illinois State in 2020 and rushed for over 1,000 yards. Robinson should be a centerpiece of what the Jaguars do on offense in 2021, and he'll benefit from no.1 pick Trevor Lawrence (Clemson) ...the expected pick at the top of the 2021 NFL draft.

  Jaguars | Trent Baalke named GM for JAX    Thu Jan 21, 09:54 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars interim general manager Trent Baalke was officially named GM Thursday, Jan. 21.

Footballguys view: Baalke gets another shot as general manager after things fell apart for him when he ran the 49ers. He will work closely with new head coach Urban Meyer, and has the NFL experience that Meyer does not. Meyer should have a lot of sway in the room in terms of personnel decisions. Baalke gets $100 million in cap space and the no.1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft. That's a pretty sweet start to his new gig.

Former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer was officially named as the new head coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday, Jan. 14. Terms of the contract were not immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: Jaguars owner Shad Khan has been targeting Meyer for some time. He'll take over a team with the no.1 overall pick and $100 million in cap space. That makes the Jaguars a team who could get into playoff contention quickly, especially with a coach like Meyer running the show.

  Jaguars | Gardner Minshew, Jake Luton could compete for backup job    Wed Jan 13, 08:56 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QBs Gardner Minshew and Jake Luton could enter training camp in a competition for the backup role, with Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence the presumptive No. 1 pick of the 2021 NFL Draft and expected 2021 starter, according to John Reid of the Florida Times-Union Wednesday, Jan. 13. Reid says the Jaguars could also opt to sign a veteran backup from outside of the organization.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars are going to take Trevor Lawrence (Clemson) with the no.1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft. That means Minshew is going to be a backup. However, with the way that Luton played in 2020 he'll get a shot to compete for the no.2 job behind Lawrence.

Former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer will interview with the Jacksonville Jaguars about its head coaching vacancy Friday, Jan. 8.

The Jaguars have an interview lined up with 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh on Saturday. His price tag will be quite a bit less. The Jaguars are a hot destination because of their $100 million in cap space and no.1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft.

The Jaguars are reportedly interested in Urban Meyer as their next head coach. They have the no.1 overall pick and $100 million in cap space to help turn things around in 2021 and beyond.

He played a great season, finishing the year with 1070 rushing yards, seven rushing touchdowns, 49 catches for 344 yards and three receiving touchdowns. Robinson should get an upgrade in quarterback next year with no.1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence (Clemson) and he's looking at being an early first-round pick in most any league in 2021.
