JagNation Notebook: Should Joe Z. Be Worried?
There could be some trouble on the horizon for Joe Z. Last season, the Jaguars brought in a younger tight end/long-snapper named Greg Estandia that challenged Joe Z. for his job. Joe Z. obviously won the job, but Estandia remained on the practice squad, and will likely challenge Joe Z. again in '07. Another possible suitor for the long-snapper position may be recent UTEP grad, Aaron King. King was at the scouting combine this year, and has had a personal workout with the Jaguars, according to Ed Thompson.
Zelenka's contract expires at the end of the 2008 season, and the Jaguars are not in any kind of salary cap bind, so his $720,000 salary for '07, and $730,000 salary for '08 really isn't holding the team hostage. The team would save less than $400,000 if they cut Joe Z., and signed one of the rookies. If Joe Z. is to stay employed by the team in 2007, he'll have to win his job outright like he's done for the last six seasons in Jacksonville.
