The Jacksonville Jaguars could be set to land one of the biggest offensive stars of free agency.
The Jaguars have a strong interest in Julius Thomas and according to a tweet from Jason Cole, an NFL reporter for Bleacher Report, Jacksonville are strong favorites to sign the star tight end and that a deal should be agreed as soon as the free agency period officially opens on Tuesday.
The Broncos seemed almost non-plussed about re-signing the tight end with Demaryius Thomas being their major need to retain and did so with the franchise tag. After using the tag on the wide receiver, the Broncos had hardly any salary cap left to dish out, which has resulted in Julius Thomas and Terrance Knighton among others being forced out.
If Thomas does sign for the Jaguars he will join former Cowboys offensive tackle Jermey Parnell, who signed a five-year, $32million deal with Jacksonville earlier today.
In other NFL news, the future of Colin Kaepernick has taken an unexpected turn. Reports broke last night that the 49ers were looking at the option of trading their star quarterback, and the team has now been forced to come out and refute those claims. We'll have to wait and see if anything more comes of it.
Over to the NBA now, where Tim Duncan might have had his worst ever game at the weekend. Duncan may be a future Hall of Famer but he missed every single one of his field goal attempts against the Bulls on Sunday.
And finally to the MLS, where the 2015 season opened this weekend. Jozy Altidore scored twice on his Toronto debut, while Kaka marked his first game in the league with a stoppage time equaliser for Orlando against New York City.
