At this point, there seems to be a sense of optimism from anyone close to the NFL and NFLPA's* negotiations concerning a new CBA. I've always believed that no football games would be missed, and I still hold firm to that belief. As such, we'll continue to operate under that assumption, and move forward ourselves.
With that belief, we can assume that training camps aren't all that far away, so; today we're highlighting positions and players to watch during training camp, and the pre-season. Some positions are obvious, while others may not be.
Quarterback: I'm personally hoping for a completely open competition that would include Luke McCown, however; that's not really likely. The focus will be on quarterbacks David Garrard and challenger Blaine Gabbert. This is likely the only battle that will attract any national attention to the Jaguars, and it's also probably the most interesting battle. I really believe that Garrard will be the starter week one, but if it's an open competition, Blaine Gabbert could steal the position, and the spotlight away.
