MyBookie thinks the Jaguars and Dez Bryant are a good bet Much has been said about the fit of Dez Bryant and the Jacksonville Jaguars. With the injury to Marqise Lee , some immediately felt the ex-Cowboys standout would be the obvious choice to fill the roster gap. Our Ryan Day reported Doug Marrone would not look outside of the present roster for help at the wide receiver position. While he did use the word “no” in his answer, he did note improving the team is still the top priority.While one might read this as a definitive statement, Doug surely left the door open in stating this business demands improvement. While the sentiment today, should upcoming practices, and pre-season game four, disclose an inability to compensate for Lee’s absence, then the Jaguars may look at other options.MyBookie has weighed in on who the front-runner is to sign Dez, and the Jaguars are one of the teams the odds makers like. Best Bet To Sign Dez BryantTeamOddsTeamOddsMyBookieMyBookie did not disclose what data was used to formulate these odds, but it is clear stability at the quarterback position is not a primary motivating factor. Of the seven teams listed, only two field what would be considered upper tier quarterbacks, those being New England and Seattle. The Giants, Titans, and Jaguars offer arguably average at best signal callers, while Arizona and Cleveland are teams looking to figure out who their starter will be.Need at the wide receiver spot presents as the most reasonable assumption for the seven listed. Apart from Larry Fitzgerald in Arizona and Odell Beckham Jr. in New York , these clubs lack an established playmaker. Even in Cleveland they still have a proven possession guy in Jarvis Landry, while some, like Jacksonville, lack anyone with extensive NFL experience. If the argument is need, then Jacksonville may present as a good bet. Jacksonville may be that spot where Bryant can run simple routes, using his big body to get separation. If there is something Bortles excels at it is the slant route. Yet, when it comes to Dez he brings more than just experience. There is the cultural fit, along with the physical capabilities.Yahoo’s Charles Robinson reported Cleveland Browns coach Hue Jackson would first consider how Bryant fits in with present players, specifically how Dez and Josh Gordon would work together. A stable place in New England, a team whose culture demands a team first attitude, and with Tom Brady a proven winner, is equally questionable. According to ex-Patriots wide receiver Troy Brown, it goes beyond personality.USA Today’s Nate Davis, on the other hand , seems to think Bryant is healthy enough to be an asset to the Jaguars offense, though he seems to cut the legs out from under his argument as he is making itIt has been reported that Bryant still sees himself as a number one receiver, and if true, the very idea that Bryant could be a red zone target for a run first team seems misplaced.Looking at the team culture created by Tom Coughlin and Doug Marrone, it is hard to see the Jaguars as a good bet to land Dez Bryant even if the need argument is granted. Consider how Dante Fowler Jr.’s antics were handled. This is not a team to welcome any form of locker room toxicity that would be a distraction to their goal of being a Super Bowl contender.Dez Bryant’s desire to only sign a one-year contract, and the thoughts of those who feel he does not carry the value Dez sees in himself, may be an indication the best bet to make is that he does not play in 2018. Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette practiced for the first time in more than a month Monday, working with the first-team offense and looking like he might be fully healthy for the first time since the season opener.But coach Doug Marrone stopped short of proclaiming Fournette back or ready to return Sunday at Indianapolis."I don't know if he is going to play," Marrone said.Fournette has missed six games, including all four during the team's four-game losing streak, because of a strained right hamstring. The Jaguars (3-5) reacted to Fournette's prolonged absence by signing free agent Jamaal Charles and then trading for Carlos Hyde.Fournette has 20 carries for 71 yards this season and has missed nine games in two years because of injuries and suspension, creating doubts about the fourth overall selection in the 2017 NFL draft.Jacksonville built its offensive scheme around Fournette and needs him back to potentially take pressure off inconsistent quarterback Blake Bortles.Marrone, though, won't know about Fournette's availability until later in the week."How things happen during the week is really what answers a lot of those questions ," he said. "Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, you are worried about this guy. Is he going to be able to play? Is he going to play the full amount? Did we get the other guys ready enough? What plays does he feel comfortable with? What plays do other people feel comfortable with?"You go back and forth because, at the end of the day, your job is to try and put the team in the best situation to win. Sometimes I feel like I've done a good job of that. But sometimes I haven't."Marrone said Bortles injured his non-throwing shoulder against Philadelphia in London, but took "his normal throws" Monday following the team's bye week."It's early in the week and we will just see how it goes," Marrone said.The Jaguars signed a third quarterback, Landry Jones, as an insurance policy in case Bortles' injury becomes more significant.
