Today is the day! Jaguars' veterans will join the rookies and quarterbacks who have already reported to training camp.
The first order of business will be COVID-19 testing. Once all that's been taken care of, the team will figure out when training camp practices will begin. Work will be light while the team ramps up towards playing regular season games.
Four Jaguars' rookies have already been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, which means they either tested positive or were exposed to the virus. The team cannot specify which is the case for any players. But the player can choose to address whether or not they tested positive publicly. Rookie fourth-round cornerback Josiah Scott shared that his first test was a false positive, and he's been tested several times since, and all the results have come back negative. DaVon Hamilton, Luq Barcoo, and Tre'Vour Wallace-Sims, the other three players on the COVID list, have yet to specify why they ended up on the list.
The Jaguars also placed rookie FB Connor Slomka on the Active/Non-Football Injury list, with an unspecified injury.
Aside from the obvious issues related to COVID-19, the Jaguars have several question marks as training camp gets underway.
Will Yannick Ngakoue show up? The star pass rusher has expressed his desire to be traded and has yet to sign his franchise tag. Should he elect to opt-out of the season, He'll be missing out on nearly $18 million, which is quite the paycheck considering Ngakoue has made less than $5 million to date.
How quickly will the new offense under Jay Gruden begin to take shape? Will Gardner Minshew have ownership from the jump?
Do CJ Henderson and K'Lavon Chaisson appear ready to take on starting roles?
Roster rules have been adjusted as well. Teams will be forced to cut the roster from 90 players down to 80 before the start of training camp. The Jaguars have yet to make the required cuts.
