The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Chris Conley, per report.

Conley, a former third round pick, spent four seasons in Kansas City, where he caught 104 passes for 1238 yards and six touchdowns. The 6-3, 205 lb receiver has dealt with a couple of injuries during his career, but saw a production spike with quarterback Patrick Mahomes in 2018, hauling in 34 catches for 334 yards and a career-high five touchdowns as the team’s No. 3 WR behind Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins.

At the NFL Combine in 2015, Conley posted a 4.35s 40 yard dash, which ranks in the 91st percentile among NFL WRs. He also recorded a 45″ vertical jump (99th percentile), which is tied for the biggest vertical jump in NFL Combine history. Conley’s 139″ broad jump (99th percentile) also ranks tied for third in NFL Combine history.

The Jaguars are inheriting a true athletic freak at receiver who’s career didn’t pan out as pkanned in Kansas City. However, thr production and athleticism is there to be excited about this Signing. Expect Conley to compete to start at wide receiver for the Jaguars in training camp.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have apparently fined LB Telvin Smith for missing three days of mandatory minicamp. This amount, according to Telvin Smith on Instagram, was for a total of $88,650. Telvin Smith decided to leave the game of football for a year last month and has not shown up to any team activities since the season ended in January.

Smith stated in his Instagram post “Oh y’all  thght [sic] it was a game!!! You say you wanna sit & get ya life right. . . they say nah […] you pay me!!!” also stating “It’s still love!!”

The Jaguars have every right to fine Smith under the current CBA signed in 2011 regarding mandatory participation in team activities. Smith has not yet informed the Jaguars officially of his intentions for the 2019 season, thus he is still considered a part of the team and on the 90-man roster.

It is not yet known whether or not the team has opted to fine DE Yannick Ngakoue who was also missing from mandatory minicamp last week as he resolves his contract with the team.

The Jacksonville Jaguars announced today the signings of WR Tre McBride and Rookie DT Kalani Vakameilalo. Both players had a tryout during yesterday’s minicamp practice. They have waived LB Nick DeLuca and LS Christian Kuntz to make room.

McBride has played for the Tennesee Titans, Chicago Bears, and the New York Jets during his time in the NFL. In 2017 he hauled in eight receptions for 144 yards. His lone touchdown came in 2015 with the Tennesee Titans. The Jaguars currently have 12 WRs on the roster including McBride. They will enter training camp for a battle for possibly five or six spots. Currently, it would be a surprise if McBride makes the team.

Vakameilao went undrafted out of Oregon State where he posted 75 tackles, including 13.5 tackles for loss.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have officially wrapped up their 2019 NFL Draft class with the signing of third-round pick Quincy Williams the team has announced today. Williams played college football at Murray State as a linebacker and safety and will be playing LB with the Jaguars.

Following the departure of WLB Telvin Smith, the Jaguars needed to find a replacement, and they hope Williams can eventually develop into that role. During OTAs and mandatory minicamp, Williams has taken some first-team reps at LB along with LB Ramik Wilson. The WLB battle will be one to watch during training camp later this summer.

Williams spoke briefly following the signing of his contract stating, “I’ve been dreaming on this and waiting on this moment my whole life,” Williams said. “I’m just here to answer the question of, ‘Who is Quincy Williams?’”
