New Jaguars GM David Caldwell confirmed on Thursday that the team will have an open quarterback competition this offseason and through training camp.
"We plan to address the quarterback situation, obviously," Caldwell said. "Blaine [Gabbert] is the second-youngest quarterback in the NFL, but we're going to have open competition. Whether it's through draft or through free agency, we'll bring in some more people to compete... We're going to let the best player win." This is just confirmation that the plans have not changed since now ex-head coach Mike Mularkey said the same thing in late November. Gabbert is signed through 2014 while Chad Henne is under contract for one more season.
