As everyone knows, training camp has officially begun, and the excitement about the Jaguars 2007…
To Sign, Or Not To Sign
The Jaguars can afford to play a little more "hardball" with Durant being that he is a second-round pick who the team is really not counting on to play a great deal in ‘07, at least at his natural linebacker position. Durant was drafted to be the eventual successor to Mike Peterson, and is supposed to play mostly on special teams in ‘07.
It appears to be a different story for the Jaguars first-round pick. According to Adam Caplan of scout.com, representatives for former University of Florida safety Reggie Nelson have told us negotiations with the Jacksonvile Jaguars have been positive and they feel a deal could be struck soon.
So who really has the leverage in this negotiation? Common knowledge would say that Nelson has had a slight upper hand ever since the Jaguars decision to release long-time Jaguars safety, Donovin Darius back in June. Nelson will likely be the opening day starter assuming he stays healthy once he signs. However, when push comes to shove, Nelson must either sign with the Jaguars or sit out a large portion of camp, and/or the season. Nelson will then be labeled as a malcontent, and garner the reputation of someone difficult to work with. No one in either party wants that.
