Jacksonville Jaguars at Minnesota Vikings Recap

The Jacksonville Jaguars had the opportunity to beat a bad Minnesota team, and they did everything possible to do so, until the final whistle blew.  Rookie kicker for the Vikings, Blair Walsh, crushed a 55 yard field goal (would have been good from 60) to tie the game as time expired.  Blair would then go on to nail the game winning 38 yard kick with just over 11 minutes remaining in the game. 

Maurice Jones-Drew on the field

The Jaguars running back Maurice Jones Drew is back with the team and practiced for the first time on Monday.

All accounts have MJD in great shape and ready to contribute as early as week one.  Rashad Jennings will still be the starter for week one, however MJD should be a viable option come week 3.

Justin Blackmon signs

Justin Blackmon agreed to terms Monday with the Jacksonville Jaguars.  The contract itself is expected to be signed later this evening or early Tuesday.  Once signed Blackmon will be able to join the Jaguars in their preseason workouts. 

Blackmon, the fifth overall pick in this years NFL draft, had been the last player drafted yet to sign his rookie deal.  Although contract details were not released, it is expected to be a 4 year deal worth nearly $20 Million dollars total, with $12 million in guaranteed money.
