Doug Marrone: Jaguars' quarterback job up for grabs

I'm looking for someone that's going to lead this offense, I'm not happy with the performance today.

Of course, if the Jaguars had anticipated this problem and felt unsure of Bortles' future going forward, they could have made a move for another quarterback, as DiRocco suggested. He has been widely erratic in training camp, the low point being an interception-riddled practice where he seemed to find the Jacksonville defenders as much as his own receivers. With Marqise Lee (ankle) on the shelf for four-to-six weeks, Westbrook could start the year behind Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson. Bortles finished 8 of 13 for 65 yards over four drives, all ending in punts.

Still, putting Bortles on the field could be considered a financial risk. Backup Chad Henne performed far better than Bortles in the game, but Henne is 18-35 as a starter, he has thrown 58 touchdown passes and 63 interceptions during his eight-year career.

When it was starters vs. starters, the Jaguars looked.: terrible.

Foot Locker sales miss weighs on sector's stocks
Envestnet Asset Mngmt has invested 0.01% in Foot Locker, Inc . 2,000 shares were sold by TURPIN CHERYL N , worth $152,340. Foot Locker shares tumbled 28 percent on Friday , to $34.37, after bouncing off a 52-week low earlier in the session.

Their UK fans have witnessed back-to-back victories at Wembley over the past two years though and Smith is confident that form can be replicated on American soil this season: "Our expectations are high and they continue to grow".

One reason to be concerned: It's really hard to find just one because, well, there were just so many. This is one of the better rosters in the National Football League, if the parameters were "best roster not counting the quarterbacks".

Earlier this week, Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett suggested it'd be nice, one time, if a Caucasian NFL player would take part in a pregame Kaepernick-style anthem protest, to support the cause. He was 3-5 for 16 yards, leading the team to two first downs and three points. The Jaguars picked up Bortles' fifth-year option for 2018 that is guaranteed for injury only. Henne's first pass should have been a touchdown, but rookie Keelan Cole dropped it at the goal line. Yeldon left the game in the first quarter after suffering a left-hamstring strain and did not return. That's significant because Leonard Fournette already is dealing with a sore foot and did not play against the Bucs. Jalen Ramsey, A.J. Bouye and Aaron Colvin did not dress.

Evans' size and athleticism has been an integral element in an upcoming Tampa Bay Buccaneers team that finished second in the NFC South at 9-7 and narrowly missed out on the NFC's sixth seed playoff spot past year.
