The team also picked up options on defensive end and special teams captain Lerentee McCray and backup safety Cody Davis on Monday.
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell watched the NFL's conference championship games on his phone while flying home from South Africa last weekend.
NEW YORK (AP) — Washington tight end Vernon Davis, already nominated for the NFL's Man of the Year Award, is one of eight finalists for the league's Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award.
The other finalists, announced Friday, are Jacksonville defensive end Calais Campbell, Chargers tight end Anthony Gates, Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck, Baltimore safety Eric Weddle, New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees, San Francisco tackle Joe Staley, and Green Bay cornerback Tramon Williams.
Bad penalties, bad decisions, bad coaching.
And bad losses.
They occurred all over the NFL on Sunday. The Jaguars , Cardinals, Chargers and Falcons all will be shaking their heads the way their fans are about how they blew games.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars still believe they can turn their season around, and it starts with just one win.
Finding it has never felt like more of a challenge.
The Jaguars ran the ball with authority, intercepted Ben Roethlisberger three times, kept the Pittsburgh Steelers from scoring in the first half for the first time in 33 games and had a 16-0 lead in the final minutes of the third quarter.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The doors opened briefly and closed a few seconds later, but the glimpse into Jacksonville's locker room told the story of the team's third consecutive loss.
Calais Campbell was holding back fellow defensive end Yannick Ngakoue, a carry-over from the screaming, shouting and finger pointing that ensued after a 20-7 loss to AFC South rival Houston (4-3) on Sunday.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars are finished with the "Payback Tour."
Now it's on to a tougher challenge, a more high-profile matchup.
The Jaguars (3-1) will play at Kansas City (3-0) next week — a game that features the league's top defense against one of the league's most potent offenses.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have added All-Pro defensive end Calais Campbell to the injury report because of knee soreness.
Campbell was listed as questionable for the team's home opener Sunday against the New England Patriots.
Campbell set a single-season franchise record with 14½ sacks in 2017. He had three tackles, including a sack, in the season opener at the New York Giants last week.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Saquon Barkley needed one play to justify the hype.
After banging and grinding for small gains much of the game, the No. 2 overall draft pick wowed New York Giants' fans in his NFL debut with a spectacular 68-yard, fourth-quarter touchdown run in a 20-15 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (12-7)
New faces: LG Andrew Norwell, TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, CB D.J. Hayden, DL Taven Bryan, WRs Donte Moncrief and DJ Chark.
Key losses: LB Paul Posluszny, CB Aaron Colvin, TE Marcedes Lewis, WRs Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — When All-Pro defensive end Calais Campbell re-watched his first season with the Jacksonville Jaguars, he noticed a recurring issue: The vaunted defense had chances to come up big late in games and failed.
It happened in four of Jacksonville's final five losses, including — and most memorably — in the AFC championship game at New England.
Campbell felt as if the unit also could and should have done more against the Los Angeles Rams, Arizona and Tennessee.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars used the NFL draft to build for the future, not necessarily this fall.
They used every pick on down-the-road starters instead of filling pressing needs.
It's a luxury rarely seen in Jacksonville, which made the AFC championship game in January after a decade of failure and futility. The Jags return 18 of 22 starters from a team that led the NFL in rushing and ranked second in total defense.
The Dallas Cowboys placed the franchise tag on DeMarcus Lawrence on Monday, and the Pro Bowl defensive end quickly signed the one-year contract that guarantees him $17.1 million in 2018.
The Cowboys had until Tuesday to put the tag on Lawrence, who can still sign a long-term deal with the club that traded up him to get him early in the second round in 2014. Lawrence's agent, David Canter, wrote on Twitter that his client signed the deal.
NEW YORK (AP) — The Packers, Cowboys, Raiders and Bengals will each receive four compensatory picks in April's draft.
The NFL announced Friday that 32 such selections will be split among 15 teams. Compensatory picks are awarded to teams who lost more or better compensatory free agents than they acquired in the previous year.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Latest on the NFL Honors (all times local):
Aaron Donald is the first pure defensive tackle to win The Associated Press NFL Defensive Player of the Year award since 1999.
The stunning turnaround by the Jacksonville Jaguars shows best in the NFL standings — and the All-Pro Team.
Rarely do the Jags have members of the elite All-Pro squad. For 2017, they have two: edge rusher Calais Campbell and cornerback Jalen Ramsey.
"It's huge," Campbell said. "That's a big testament to the work we put in. We don't just show up and perform. We grind day in and day out to be the best. This defense is very special, so I'm glad to see us get some accolades for our hard work."
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Coach Doug Marrone was just about to release his players for a two-day break Sunday when defensive end Calais Campbell, safety Jarrod Wilson and several other Jacksonville Jaguars chimed in with a request.
"Poz, Poz, Poz," they chanted.
They wanted veteran linebacker Paul Posluszny front and center.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Malik Jackson was first to reach Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett on this play.
Brissett slipped out of Jackson's diving arm tackle and scrambled right. Yannick Ngakoue was waiting, only to have Brissett spin away from him.
Next up was Calais Campbell, who didn't miss. He rarely does.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Calais Campbell fielded the loose ball like a big league shortstop and kept moving, rumbling toward the end zone.
Former teammate John Wetzel caught up to Jacksonville's massive defensive lineman, but Campbell had his eyes on the goal line.
Dragging Wetzel with him for the final 3 yards, Campbell tumbled into the end zone , sprang to his feet and let out a roar toward the roof of University of Phoenix Stadium.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Twenty-one months ago, John Elway was basking in a confetti shower as he put his fingerprints on the third Super Bowl trophy he's captured for the Denver Broncos and dedicated it to team owner Pat Bowlen, who's battling Alzheimer's.
Not much has gone right for Elway and the Broncos since that night in Northern California.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Calais Campbell has two things he wants to bring back from Arizona: An eighth victory and Larry Fitzgerald's No. 11 jersey.
DALLAS (AP) — DeMarcus Lawrence lost his NFL lead in sacks when he didn't have one for the first time in eight games this season with the Cowboys.
The Dallas defensive end still said it was his best game of the year.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell rattled off three reasons why Sunday's game against Cincinnati is important.
It's at home.
It's an AFC game.
It's following a bye week.
"You never want to start talking playoffs too early in the thick in things, but every game is so critical to that future success and trying to win the division," Campbell said. "This is a very important game for us for many reasons."
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Defensive end Calais Campbell might be the best free-agent acquisition in Jacksonville Jaguars history.
He's certainly the NFL's best in 2017.
The 31-year-old Campbell ended one of the franchise's longest futility streaks Sunday when he notched his 10th sack of the season. He also helped the Jaguars (4-3) get on pace to break the NFL's single-season record of 72 set by the 1984 Chicago Bears. Jacksonville has a league-leading 33 and is on track for 75.
LONDON (AP) — About two dozen players, including Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs and Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette, took a knee during the playing of the national anthem before the start of the teams' game at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.
HOUSTON (AP) — Jacksonville got its first season-opening win since 2011 thanks to a pair of players making their Jaguars debuts.
Fourth overall pick Leonard Fournette ran for 100 yards and a touchdown and free-agent acquisition Calais Campbell had four of Jacksonville's franchise-record 10 sacks in a 29-7 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday.
JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (3-13)
New faces: CB A.J. Bouye, DE Calais Campbell, SS Barry Church, RB Leonard Fournette, LT Cam Robinson.
Key losses: CB Prince Amukamara, LT Kelvin Beachum, SS Johnathan Cyprien, DT Sen'Derrick Marks, DT Roy Miller, TE Julius Thomas.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed defensive end Malliciah Goodman.
Goodman has appeared in 37 career games with 11 starts, getting 29 tackles, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
Goodman was originally selected by Atlanta in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL draft. He spent his first three seasons (2013-15) with the Falcons. He appeared in one game for Seattle last season before returning to Atlanta and playing in two games for the Falcons.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals have re-signed Frostee Rucker to a one-year contract, retaining a veteran presence on the defensive line after losing Calais Campbell in free agency.
The 6-foot-3, 280-pound Rucker has played 10 NFL seasons, the first six with the Cincinnati Bengals and the last four with Arizona after signing as a free agent with the Cardinals in 2013.
The 33-year-old defensive tackle appeared in 13 games last season with 25 tackles and a forced fumble.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have two former Pro Bowl players visiting: Oakland running back Latavius Murray and Kansas City defensive tackle Dontari Poe.
Both free agents were expected to wrap up visits Monday. It was unclear whether either would sign; both had other visits scheduled.
Murray ran for 2,278 yards and 20 touchdowns in three seasons with the Raiders, including 1,066 yards and six touchdowns in his 2015 Pro Bowl season.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Tom Coughlin's resume, reputation and rings already are making a difference for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The team's new executive vice president of football operations played a pivotal role in landing one of the NFL's top free-agent classes. General manager Dave Caldwell even said Coughlin "was critical in us closing those deals."
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars made another huge splash in free agency Thursday, signing three starters expected to make a decent defense dynamic.
The Latest on NFL free agency (all times Eastern):
The Jacksonville Jaguars are spending big in free agency for the third consecutive year.
According to a person familiar with the deals, the Jaguars have agreed to terms with Arizona defensive end Calais Campbell and Dallas safety Barry Church. The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the Jaguars won't announce any deals until players sign contracts Friday.
