The offset-language issue is once again dead

.Entry-level contracts in the age of the rookie wage scale entail precious few terms over which to haggle. One is whether and to what extent guaranteed payments will be subject to offset language.With offset language Jawaan Taylor Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys , the team gets credit for any money the player makes elsewhere, if he’s cut, clears waivers, and signs with another team. Without offset language, the player gets to keep all of the money from his rookie deal, plus whatever he makes with a new team — if he’s cut and then clears waivers.This year, only one player emerged with no offset language in his contract: Jaguars defensive end Josh Allen. And that happened simply because the Jaguars and Rams are the only two teams that routinely remove offset language from top-10 rookie contracts. (In 2018, when the Jaguars made a rare exit from the top 10, offset language was included in the guarantees paid to Taven Bryan, the 29th pick in the draft.)While the issue could come back at some point in the future, it’s currently dead and gone. Which means that signing-bonus cash flow remains the biggest remaining issue for the guys taken at the top of the draft. The Jacksonville Jaguars head to the middle of America this Sunday to take on divisional rival Indianapolis Colts (3-5) at Lucas Oil Stadium at 1:00pm EST.For fans not making the trip Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys Stitched , we’ll have Spero Dedes and Adam Archuleta on the CBS call for Sunday. UNIFORM WATCH: White tops, black trousers in Indy.OpponentThe Colts’ season may have started off a little rocky as Andrew Luck knocked off some understandable rust following his long hiatus from football, but Captain Luck has led his troops to two consecutive wins heading into last week’s bye. Sure, the wins may have been against the Bills and Raiders, but three out of the Colts’ five losses have been within one possession, so it’s not like they’ve been getting embarrassed by 30+ points against the Cowboys or anything. While Luck ranks third in the NFL with 42.9 pass attempts per game, he is 29th in yards per attempt (6.2), so rookie head coach Frank Reich’s up-tempo West Coast offense has helped contribute to keeping Luck healthy and clean in the pocket. The real story surrounding the Colts offense has been the dominant play of their offensive line, which hasn’t allowed a sack in 15 quarters and is allowing one sack every 35 drop backs this year. To put this into perspective, Luck was sacked once every 14 drop backs the last time he played in 2016. The Jaguars defense may be middle of the pack in sacks, but they’ve been applying an incredible amount of pressure with their defensive line this year Youth Jawaan Taylor Jersey , so this battle up front should be a phenomenal one this week for anyone who admires trench warfare.To make matters worse for the Jaguars, the Colts also have their running game rolling since Marlon Mack has returned from injury, and Mack became the first Colts runner with back-to-back 100 yard rushing games since Joseph Addai in 2007. In addition to Mack, rookie running back/wide receiver hybrid Nyheim Hines has been devastating out of the backfield and adds another underneath dimension for the Jaguars linebackers to account for. The Jaguars defense currently ranks second in passing yards allowed per game and points allowed per game, so expect the Colts to go to the well in their running game early and often to not challenge the Jaguars through the air more than they have to — A.J. Bouye or not.Defensively, the Colts have been fairly mediocre against the run (averaging 109 yards allowed per game), so this is a good opportunity for the Jaguars to get back to their smash mouth offensive identity. The Colts are a bottom ten pass defense statistically, and as inconsistent and unreliable as the Jaguars receivers have been lately, expect them to get some good chances against below average cornerbacks if Nathaniel Hackett can get the play action game up and running. The one player the Jaguars will need to pay attention to on every snap will be impressive rookie linebacker Darius Leonard. Leonard leads the NFL with 88 tackles and has been a one-man wrecking crew with four sacks and three crucial forced fumbles this season.Check out Ryan O’Bleness’ cross-over piece with Chris Blystone of Stampede Blue for more information about the opponent and check out the all-time series history against the Colts.StorylinesThe biggest storyline for the Jaguars this week is the return of Leonard Fournette to help catalyze what has been an inept offense over the second quarter of the season. Some fans are looking for Fournette to be a magical elixir that totally fixes the offense, but reality is that simply won’t be the case. Having Fournette available, however Mens Jawaan Taylor Jersey , should positively influence play calling and bring back the balance that has escaped Nathaniel Hackett in the second quarter of the season. Getting back to their offensive identity should force the Colts to pack the box and open up some looks for Blake Bortles to work off of play action. The other big storyline this week is the Donte Moncrief revenge tour. Moncrief has been fairly disappointing this season, but there’s just something against playing a former team that causes players to dial it up a notch. There is no doubt that Moncrief will be playing to prove that the Colts made a mistake
