According to the Times-Union, the Jacksonville Jaguars expect a resolution to C Jeff Smith's contract situation soon. The team likely will take the same hard-line approach it used with OT Todd Fordham. Fordham was offered around the league minimum, he then asked for more and the Jaguars refused so he signed with Denver. Several players, including OT Tony Boselli and QB Mark Brunell, were upset when Fordham left. Owner Wayne Weaver said the team expects Zach Wiegert to be the starting right tackle next season. The team may also look for an offensive lineman in the first round of the NFL Draft. The NFL schedule makers challenged the Jaguars with a three-game road stretch, playing at Cincinnati on December 9, at Cleveland on December 16 and at Minnesota on December 23. Only two teams had winning records on a three-game road swing last season in seven tries.

The Times-Union reports agent Ralph Cindrich said the Jaguars are still interested in re-signing C Jeff Smith. The team needs to complete a new deal with QB Mark Brunell to free up needed cap space. Cindrich said he is negotiating on behalf of Smith with one other team that also is short on cap space. As far as Brunell goes, owner Wayne Weaver skipped the NFL meetings to stay in Jacksonville to focus on negotiations for a contract extension for Brunell. Asked if a deal was close, agent David Dunn said, "I don't know." Weaver and SVP of Football Operations Michael Huyghue said trading Brunell is not in the team's current plans. The sides are close in principle on the first four years of the deal, but not on issues such as bonus, guaranteed money early in the contract and money in the late years.

Brunell said he agreed with comments Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver made that the new Drew Bledsoe contract should speed up his contract talks.

The team contacted the agent for C Jeff Smith about him re-signing with the team. Agent Ralph Cindrich said Smith is also talking to two other undisclosed teams. TE Rich Griffith, LB Brant Boyer, OT Todd Fordham and OT Leon Searcy are other players the team would like to re-sign, but all are in some form of discussion or at a minimum visiting with other teams.
