Blaine Gabbert will have to earn the starting quarterback spot he has held with the Jacksonville Jaguars the previous two seasons.
At least, that's what General Manager David Caldwell said Tuesday at the NFL scouting combine when asked by NFL.com if Gabbert could be considered the incumbent starter.
"It's going to be a wide-open competition," Caldwell said.
But just who will Gabbert be competing against? Chad Henne, who has done an admirable job with the Jaguars and Miami Dolphins, is still there but probably wouldn't have fans dancing in the streets if he were to claim the job.
Jacksonville has the No. 2 pick in the draft, and if the rumors are true that No. 1 Kansas City is ready to trade for San Francisco quarterback Alex Smith, then the Jaguars could have their pick of any QB out there.
