Faulk to sign with Jaguars

Great news. That is a good organization. The Jaguars have developed a loyal fan base in North Florida. They'll show up for games unless the temperature falls below 50deg.

Thats just north of my home town!!!

Give it your best shot Nello!!!! :)

Besides his playing ability, Faulk will be a great PR builder for the team with his personality.

Plus, its nice he is playing in FL. His presence up there might help recruiting in that part of the state.

If he can get in enough to spend time with their trainers, and nutritionist, he has a very good shot at making it...that is the only thing holding him back IMO...good for him!!

Faulk gets a shot

Well, it took a while for the paperwork to get done, but Nello Faulk officially has signed with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent.

Here?s the release from FAU:

BOCA RATON, FL (May 9, 2007)?Nello Faulk, a three-year starter and four-year member of Florida Atlantic University?s football team, has been invited to the Jacksonville Jaguars? Rookie Camp scheduled from May 12-14.
Faulk joined the Owls in the fall of 2003 and made an immediate impact on a squad that surprised many across the nation. The Tampa native played special teams for an FAU squad that finished the 2003 season with an 11-3 record, moved deep into the NCAA?s national championship tournament and hosted a national semifinal game.
During Faulk?s sophomore season he moved from tackle to center and led the squad to a 5-0 start, all on the road, including upset victories over Hawaii and North Texas. Both teams were coming off bowl berths, and FAU was the only visiting team to defeat Hawaii in 2004.
Faulk was part of the program?s move to full Division I-A membership and participation in the Sun Belt Conference in 2005. He lined-up against many of the nation?s best in 2006 as the Owls played the nation?s fourth most difficult schedule through the first six weeks and ended the year with a 4-3 conference mark. The senior?s efforts earned him a spot on the 2006 Sun Belt Conference first team.

Jaguars Camp Schedule

Mini-camp: Saturday, May 12 practice 10:30-12:15 and 4:15-6:00 open to the public,
Jack Del Rio available following morning practice, players and coaches available by request after morning practice

Sunday, May 13 practice 10:30-12:15 and 4:15-6:00, Jack Del Rio available following morning practice, players and coaches available by request after morning practice

Monday, May 14 practice 10:30-12:15, Jack Del Rio available following practice, players and coaches available by request after practice

I wouldn?t expect much to come from this. The feeling out there is Faulk hasn?t bulked up enough to compete in the NFL. He could possibly end up in Canada for NFL Europe. And maybe, in a year or two, could get another shot if he can add the pounds needed.

Later?

Faulk is in mini camp today.


Jaguars minicamp open to public today

Jaguars minicamp open to public today



Fans have an opportunity to see the Jaguars in action today on the practice fields at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium.

Workouts, which run through Monday, are open to the public today only, and sessions are from 10:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. and 4:15 p.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is free.

This mandatory minicamp will feature the team's full roster, which includes all rookies and veterans. First-round draft pick Reggie Nelson will take the field, but offensive guard Chris Naeole and defensive end Bobby McCray aren't expected to attend because of contract issues.

In addition to the Jaguars' 2007 class of incoming rookies, four players will participate on a tryout basis. Those players include cornerbacks Fletcher Terrell (Washburn) and Rashod Moulton (Fort Valley State), quarterback Josh Padrick (Florida International) and offensive tackle Nello Faulk (Florida Atlantic).
