NFL Notes: Jaguars, Jets, Lions, Rams, & Seahawks


Jaguars GM David Caldwell explained that their decision to decline OT Luke Joeckel‘s fifth-year option doesn’t mean they won’t sign him to an extension after the 2016 season.

“If he plays great next year, we’ll pay him, but for us to be locked into that number didn’t make sense,” Caldwell told Sirius XM NFL Radio. “It wasn’t about him. I told him we want him to be here for a long time, and retire a Jaguar.”

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll mentioned during an interview with Sirius XM NFL Radio that first-round pick Germain Ifedi will start off at guard during his rookie year.

We will start Germain Ifedi inside but we have options with him and J’Marcus Webb at right tackle,” Carroll said. “We’ll see how it plays out.”
