Jaguars Pass on Options for Starting LT Beachum – The Jacksonville Jaguars did not pick up the four-year option in Kelvin Beachum‘s contract on Wednesday, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he won’t be the team’s starting left tackle in September. Beachum is not a free agent until March 9, so the two sides have plenty of time to agree on a contract. By not picking up the option, however, the Jaguars run the risk that Beachum will decide to test the free-agent market and sign elsewhere.
Jets Decline LT Clady Option for 2017 – The New York Jets have released high-priced left tackle Ryan Clady, the start of what figures to be an offseason roster purge. On Wednesday, the team informed Clady’s agent it won’t pay a $1 million roster bonus, according to sources. By not paying the bonus, due Wednesday, the Jets made Clady a free agent.
