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.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have found a way to shake off the stench of a 2-14 season. Unveil a new logo. Yep, that will take care of everything. The team showed off its new logo Wednesday, pointing out several changes they made to the old logo: 1. The ear curves out more. 2. The eye is colored blue. 3. White fur has been added to the bottom half of the face. Can a winning season be far behind now?

The Jacksonville Jaguars hired Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley as head coach Thursday. Bradley spent the last four seasons in Seattle. This season, the Seahawks ranked first in the NFL in fewest points allowed per game (15.3) and fourth in yards (306.2), and tied for fourth in takeaways (31). The Jaguars were 30th in the league in total defense in 2012. "He's got a brilliant football mind," Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll told the Associated Press. "He's got a way of reaching people and touching people and getting the best out of them, coaches and players alike.

Mike Mularkey is out as coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Like Kansas City's Romeo Crennel, Mularkey was fired after one abysmal season. Both the Jaguars and Chiefs finished a league-worst 2-14.  “I know Mike well and do not want anyone to misinterpret the rationale behind my decision,” Jaguars General Manager David Caldwell said. “Mike is an excellent coach and I am sure he will succeed in his next stop in the NFL.  However, I must do what I believe is best for the Jacksonville Jaguars and immediately explore every avenue possible to turn our football team around.  For that to happen as seamlessly as we want, and as quickly as our fans deserve, I feel it is in everyone's best interests for an immediate and clean restart.” Said Jaguars owner Shad Khan: “Mike Mularkey is leaving our organization with my utmost respect.

Tim Tebow will not be playing for his hometown Jacksonville Jaguars next season, not if new General Manager David Caldwell has his way. In his introductory news conference Thursday, Caldwell was adamant that the former Heisman Trophy winner at Florida and current failed Jets quarterback is not part of the team's rebuilding plan. “I can't imagine a scenario in which he'll be a Jacksonville Jaguar - even if he's released,” Caldwell said. And the Jets have indicated they will release Tebow, who was the odd man out when New York shuffled struggling starter Mark Sanchez and third-stringer Greg McElroy in and out of the lineup.

If it's Tuesday, it must be time for the newest Times NFL power rankings, and there is a big shakeup this week. Houston and Atlanta are no longer first and second, being replaced by Denver and New England. There are three new teams in the top 10, the New York Giants, Seattle Seahawks and Washington Redskins. That means, of course, that three teams fell out of the top 10: the Baltimore Ravens, Chicago Bears and Pittsburgh Steelers. FULL LIST: Times NFL power rankings If the Super Bowl were held today, expect a Denver-Atlanta matchup.

Chad Henne never quite caught on in Miami. Will he be able to do so in Jacksonville? Will he even get the chance? Henne threw for 354 yards and a career-high four touchdowns after coming in for Jaguars starting quarterback Blaine Gabbert, who bruised his right elbow Sunday early in the Jaguars' 43-37 overtime loss to the Houston Texans. That's the 9-1 Houston Texans, who came into the game 16-point favorites over the 1-9 Jaguars -- the same Jacksonville team that hasn't managed to score more than 23 points in a game all season.

Wide receiver Mike Thomas was traded from the Jacksonville Jaguars to the Detroit Lions for an undisclosed draft pick on Tuesday -- and guess which two teams are playing each other on Sunday? You think things might get a little uncomfortable in Jacksonville this weekend? After all, it couldn't have been the most pleasant of breakups. Thomas had recently been passed by a rookie and a second-year player on the Jaguars' depth chart and also lost his job as the team's primary punt returner.

The news keeps getting better for Jacksonville Jaguars fans, not to mention fantasy football owners: Maurice Jones-Drew probably will play in the season opener as a third-down back and might play an entire series, according to Coach Mike Mularkey . The dual-threat running back, the reigning NFL rushing champion, reported to camp Sunday after a 38-day holdout as he demanded a new contract, even though he had two years left and $9 million owed...

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is unhappy with comments made by team owner Shad Khan about his 28-day holdout. “Maurice wants to play for an organization that wants him and for an owner who respects him and values what he brings to a team - on the field, in the locker room and in the community,” Jones-Drew's agent, Adisa Bakari, told the Associated Press. Last week, Khan said that Jones-Drew's holdout "doesn't even move the needle” in terms of stress on the team and that he had better return to training camp because “[the]
