JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell is doing the right thing by not committing to either quarterback Blaine Gabbert or running back Maurice Jones-Drew.

In Jones-Drew's case, letting him test the free-agent market to find the best offer and then deciding if he wants to match that is a sound strategy by Caldwell, Florida Times-Union columnist Gene Frenette writes. In Gabbert's case, it all hinges on whether the Jaguars can re-sign quarterback Chad Henne. If they can, then Gabbert is expendable. If not, then he's a cheap option as a backup in 2014.

But until the Henne signing plays out, there's no point in doing anything with Gabbert.

Here are some additional pieces of Jaguars content from around the Web in our daily Reading the Coverage feature:

Some news that will impact the Jaguars' draft: The Orlando Sentinel reports that Central Florida quarterback Blake Bortles will officially declare for the draft on Monday. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley will stay in school and an announcement is expected this week.

This is the place to go to see which underclassmen have declared for the NFL draft.
