Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com gives his observations from three days in Jacksonville. "Two years ago, people were writing off center Brad Meester. But defenses were taking advantage of weak guard play to get to him. He rebounded well last season and is a guy whom coaches love as a reliable offensive line leader." ESPN.com
"His tenure in the NFL is unlike any other player&39;s in the history of the game, from the perseverance it took for his career to even begin, to his time taking snaps in games from his brother, Dan Turk. The unbearable pain of losing his brother to cancer just a year after the two played together lingers." Florida Times-Union
"A GM's job is to not just put his team in the best position to win but also know when to say no. You can't fill every void, however big or small, by having owner Wayne Weaver cut a check." Florida Times-Union
"The City Council Finance Committee approved a bill Tuesday that would amend the stadium lease between the City and the team and return the unused City tickets to the Jaguars inventory for sale to the public." Daily Record

"The NFL conducted two mandatory conference calls with team officials last week to discuss new health-and-safety guidelines. Much of the talk was to make teams aware of the temperatures as players and reminding coaches, general managers and team medical personnel about the warning signs of heat illness as the lockout came to an end and camps began to open, some to record-high temperatures."

Players are expected to vote on final ratification of CBA today. Once CBA is approved by players, new league year begins.

Stat of the day
Punter Matt Turk is the oldest player currently in the NFL at age 43. Turk was originally signed as a rookie free agent by Green Bay in 1993.
The Jaguars return to the Florida Blue Health & Wellness Practice Fields this morning at 10:45 a.m. for a walkthrough. The team is scheduled to practice in pads tonight at 7:00 p.m. Both practices are open to the public with free admission.
The last word
"Not really. I talked to Sam Bradford at the Super Bowl. I had a chance to talk with Eli Manning and Josh Freeman. We have the same agent so that made it very easy, but just having a chance to talk with those guys and then being with David (Garrard) and Luke (McCown) for 18, 19 hours a day, you see how everything works. They've been here and they've done that. I think this will be Luke's eighth season and Dave's tenth so they've seen everything in the book. They've seen guys come and go, they've seen the ups and downs of a football team. So just kind of taking bits and pieces of what they have to say, putting that in my mind so I can learn from it."
