  • Jaguars' Josh Allen: Agrees to massive five-year deal

    Allen and the Jaguars agreed to terms Wednesday on a five-year, $150 million contract, Nick Shook of NFL.com reports. Jacksonville is about a month removed from placing the franchise tag on Allen, who tallied a franchise-record 17.5 sacks last season, but the team's stated goal has always been to negotiate a long-term contract with the two-time Pro Bowler. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Allen's new deal includes $88 million guaranteed, while the franchise tag would've had him play out the 2024 season on a salary of just over $24 million. Allen looked convincing as one of the league's elite pass-rushers in 2024, in which he also logged 66 tackles (43 solo), one interception and two forced fumbles across 17 regular-season appearances. He'll come off the board as one of the top players at his position in IDP formats in 2024 drafts.

  • Jaguars' Josh Allen: Officially gets franchise tag

    The Jaguars have officially placed their franchise tag on Allen ahead of Tuesday's 4:00 p.m. ET deadline. Allen receiving the franchise tag has been long expected, and is now official. The 2019 first-round pick is coming off a true breakout campaign, with a career-high 17.5 sacks in 2023, to go with 66 tackles (43 solo), one interception and two forced fumbles. He and Jacksonville still have until mid-July to negotiate a long-term deal, but if Allen believes he can replicate similar production in the 2024 season, he may be comfortable betting on himself with the hopes of hitting the open market next offseason as a true star at one of the NFL's most sought-after positions.

  • Jaguars' Josh Allen: To be tagged

    The Jaguars are expected to place the franchise tag on Allen by Tuesday's 4:00 p.m. ET deadline, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Allen will play out the 2024 season on a one-year, guaranteed $24 million contract if the Jaguars indeed place the franchise tag on him, and a long-term deal isn't agreed to by mid-July. The 2019 first-round pick broke out in a big way with 66 tackles (43 solo), 17.5 sacks, one interception and two forced fumbles in 17 regular-season games last season, and he would immediately become one of the top available free agents on the market were Jacksonville allow him to walk.

  • Jaguars' Josh Allen: Third in NFL in sacks

    Allen recorded six tackles (five solo) including three sacks in Sunday's 26-20 win versus the Panthers. Allen's masterpiece in Week 17 brought his season sack total up to 16.5, better than everyone in the league except for T.J. Watt and Trey Hendrickson, both of whom have 17.0 going into the last week of the regular season. Allen is making a strong case for a huge second contract and will have at least one more chance to add to that case in Week 18 at Tennessee.

  • Jaguars' Josh Allen: Quick recovery expected

    Allen is considered day-to-day due to a shoulder sprain suffered in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, John Shipley of SI.com reports. That's good news for the Jaguars and Allen, who is one of the team's most productive players on defense. However, his status during practice will be worth monitoring in the days ahead leading up to the team's Week 3 matchup with the Texans.

  • Jaguars' Josh Allen: Monstrous production in Week 1

    Allen recorded 10 tackles, including three sacks, in Sunday's 31-21 win at the Colts. Allen got a blazing start Sunday to what he hopes will be the second double-digit sack season of his career. Some of his sack production could be chalked up to inexperience from rookie Indianapolis quarterback Anthony Richardson (knee), who took four total sacks in Week 1, but Allen and his counterpart Travon Walker are obviously going to be a force to be reckoned with in 2023.

  • Jaguars' Josh Allen: Forces strip-sack in win

    Allen recorded six tackles (three solo), including one sack, and a forced fumble during Sunday's 31-3 win against the Texans. Allen logged his third sack in the last four weeks, forcing a fumble as he brought down Houston signal-caller Davis Mills early in the second quarter. This also marked the Jaguars' only takeaway in this massive blowout. Allen also paced Jacksonville with 74 percent of defensive snaps played since the team benched its starters early in the second half. Allen has now accumulated six sacks over 16 games this season, and he should have a good chance to get after Titans quarterback Joshua Dobbs in Week 18, as Tennessee has allowed the seventh-most sacks in the league with 45.

  • Jaguars' Josh Allen: Two sacks in win

    Allen recorded three tackles (two solo), two sacks and a forced fumble during Sunday's 24-0 win over the Colts. After a modest performance in the season opener, Allen got back on track in Week 2. He strip-sacked Matt Ryan at the end of the first quarter, but Indianapolis was able to secure the loose ball. The fourth-year pass rusher took down the veteran quarterback again on a third-down play at the beginning of the second quarter. If healthy, Allen will likely be a double-digit sack candidate for the 2022 campaign.

  • Jaguars' Josh Allen: Tests positive for COVID-19

    Allen was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday after testing positive for the virus, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Allen is unvaccinated, per Mark Long of the Associated Press, meaning he'll miss Weeks 16 and 17 while going through the health and safety protocols. K'Lavon Chaisson and Jordan Smith should see more run at outside linebacker in the meantime for Jacksonville.

    Allen (shoulder) returned to log a full practice Thursday. Allen missed the Jaguars' first practice of the week Wednesday but appears to be ready to go for Week 15 against the Texans after full participation Thursday.

  • Jaguars' Josh Allen: Records another sack

    Allen had three tackles (one solo) and a sack during Sunday's 23-13 loss to Denver. The 24-year-old played 49 of 69 defensive snaps and brought down Teddy Bridgewater for a 16-yard loss during the first quarter, which helped hold the Broncos to a field goal. Allen is off to a strong start this season with eight total tackles and two sacks through two games.

  • Jaguars' Josh Allen: Records sack in season opener

    Allen had five tackles (three solo) and one sack during Sunday's 37-21 loss at Houston. It was Jacksonville's lone sack of the afternoon as Tyrod Taylor had an efficient day leading the Texans offense. Allen recorded only 2.5 sacks in eight games last season before going down with an injury, but he's off to a strong start in 2021.

  • Jaguars' Josh Allen: Will miss extended time

    Coach Doug Marrone said Monday that Allen avoided ligament damage in his knee but will miss "considerable time," John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports. Marrone didn't elaborate on the nature of Allen's injury, but he made it sound like an IR stint could be in the works. The Jaguars won't rush their star defensive end back with the playoffs out of reach, so rookie K'Lavon Chaisson figures to get an extended look as a starting defensive end.

  • Jaguars' Josh Allen: Knee injury ends day

    Allen (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's matchup against the Steelers. Allen was initially pegged doubtful upon sustaining his knee injury at the 8:52 mark of the third quarter, but he was subsequently downgraded to out. With Jacksonville trailing 17-3 entering the fourth quarter, rookie K'Lavon Chaisson will be counted on in a more integral pass-rush role for the remainder of the contest.

  • Jaguars' Josh Allen: Inactive against Detroit

    Allen (knee) won't suit up in Sunday's game against Detroit, Michael DiRocco of ESPN reports. Allen drew a questionable tag this week after only suiting up in practice on a limited basis. It will be the second straight game missed for the Kentucky product, who has two sacks this campaign already. In his stead, look for rookie K'Lavon Chaisson to take on an increased role for Week 6.

  • Jaguars' Josh Allen: Able to practice on limited basis

    Allen (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice. Allen's knee injury kept him out of game action for the first time in his career last week against the Texans, but the pass rusher has taken a step in the right direction after being unable to practice in the lead-up to last week's absence. Consider Allen more likely than not to suit up Sunday against the Lions, but it's best to monitor his practice participation as the week unfolds to be sure.

  • Jaguars' Josh Allen: Knee injury pops up

    Allen (knee) didn't practice Wednesday. This is the first we're hearing of a knee injury for Allen, though he missed a Wednesday practice earlier in the season with a calf injury and didn't wind up on the final injury report that week. Allen's practice participation should be monitored ahead of Sunday's clash with the Texans, as he's a key piece on the Jacksonville defense with two sacks and seven quarterback hits through four games.

  • Jaguars' Josh Allen: Tallies another sack

    Allen had two tackles and a sack during Sunday's 33-25 loss to the Bengals. The 2019 first-round pick didn't record a sack through the first two games of the season, but he now has sacks in back-to-back contests. Allen has only seven total tackles, so he'll need to be more involved beyond the pass rush to be a viable IDP option.

  • Jaguars' Josh Allen: Sidelined Wednesday

    Allen (calf) did not practice Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Allen was forced to exit Sunday's win against the Colts due to calf cramps, but coach Doug Marrone said he expects the second-year pro to return to practice Thursday. If Allen is indeed able to resume handling practice reps without much delay, he'll be trending in the right direction to suit up against Tennessee in Week 2.

  • Jaguars' Josh Allen: Recovering from calf cramps

    Allen is expected to sit out Wednesday's practice due to a calf issue, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports. Allen was removed in the second half of Jacksonville's Week 1 win over the Colts after experiencing some calf cramping. Before leaving, the second-year edge rusher totaled two tackles (one solo) over 46 defensive snaps. Coach Doug Marrone downplayed the calf concern, saying that he expects Allen to return to practice Thursday. Assuming that's the case, Allen should be in good shape to handle a full workload in Sunday's game at Tennessee.
