Wright On

Florida Times-Union reporter Michael C. Wright covers the ins and outs of the Jacksonville Jaguars. In this blog, he'll share behind-the-scenes anecdotes not published within the pages of the T-U, in addition to offering up incessant ramblings about nothing such as road trips, crummy hotels and not-so-delicious press box food. Perhaps he'll even delve into serious discussions about NFL issues. So ask questions, participate in conversations, or just learn more about the Jags.

How Jags-Ravens trade went down

Jaguars vice president of player personnel James Harris said the Jags had been in contact all week with several teams about making a deal to move up in the draft.

The Jags gave Baltimore their first-round pick, two third rounders and a fourth to move up to No. 8 to acquire Derrick Harvey. Part of the rationale behind the move is the surplus of talent already on the roster. Because of the talent , it's not a given anymore that a third or fourth rounder can make the Jags' final 53-man roster.

"With our roster, we're not sure they [third-round picks] could make the team," Harris said.

Stay tuned and don't rule out the possibility of the Jags' acquiring another pick by dangling receiver Matt Jones.

I think it's time. Matt Jones has been a good ball player. He's come up with some unbelievable catches- but he's too inconsistent. He's had his chances. They should look to Tennessee to possibly package a deal and get a better draft position in order to get a DT. The Titans could use a receiver and we could use a higher pick.
