RTC: Chad Henne should be top priority
By Michael DiRocco
The Jaguars have to make re-signing quarterback Chad Henne their top priority, writes Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union.
With free agency beginning in little more than a month, the Jaguars need to get Henne's deal done to keep him from becoming a free agent. The quarterbacks available in the draft aren't as good as anticipated and there may not be one ready to start right away, so having Henne back to at least begin the season as the Jaguars' starter and mentor a young QB is vital, Stellino writes.
Stellino also writes that re-signing with the Jaguars is Henne's best chance to be a starter next season because he knows the system and has already proven he can get the job done after leading the team to a 4-4 record in the second half of the 2013 season.
Here are some additional pieces of Jaguars-related content from around the Web in our daily Reading the Coverage feature:
Not everybody gets invited to the NFL combine, which will take place later this month. There will be 335 players attending the event and NFLDraftScout.com senior analyst Dane Brugler provides a list of players who were snubbed.
NFL.com got illustrator John Raya to re-design every team's helmet to fit in the Star Wars universe. They're pretty cool for the most part, although the Cleveland Browns' re-design looks pretty much the same. The Jaguars have be re-done as the Kashyyk Wookies, though Raya went with a solid black helmet as his base.
