2013 Free Agent & Franchise Tag Tracker

Free Agency Tracker: Wrapping it up

Updated 2014 franchise-tag/free-agency tracker: Updated tracker “almost” puts a bow on 2014 free agency


JACKSONVILLE – We’re at bow-tying time – well, pretty much, anyway.

The NFL’s 2014 free-agency period isn’t technically done. There are still free agents out there, and no doubt moves will continue to be made.

But the so-called first-tier of free agency — the time when it dominates Twitter and message boards, the time when players earn millions in signing bonuses and the time when owners and general managers hope against hope the moves made are the right ones – is done for this offseason anyway.

The Jaguars, after a flurry of defensive free-agent signings in the first week – a flurry that included significant depth-adding on the defensive line – signed former Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Tandon Doss in the second week.

But that was it for the Jaguars in week two. No flurry, and perhaps no more high-profile front-line additions, with General Manager David Caldwell saying most of his focus – probably about 95 percent – between now and early May will be on preparing for the May 8-10 NFL Draft.

So, with that in mind, this is pretty much the bow-tying version of the jaguars.com 2014 free-agency tracker, though it will continue to be updated as warranted:
