    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have forfeited their final two organized team activities to resolve a complaint filed against the team regarding the intensity and tempo of drills.

    The Jaguars settled the unspecified complaint with the NFL Management Counsel and the NFL Players Association on Thursday. It was unknown who filed the complaint and when.

    Coach Jack Del Rio was scheduled to address the situation later Thursday. Jacksonville canceled practices Monday and Tuesday, their final two on-field workouts before training camp.

    The NFL's collective bargaining agreement sets rules for OTAs, which are non-contact drills without pads. Teams practice in shorts, shirts and helmets.

    Oakland and Baltimore were penalized for similar infractions last week.

    Hmmmm...I'm torn here. Part of me says that it's a good thing that they are being penalized and missing out on time that could really help their team. The other part of me says that these guys came to play this year and are starting out with a fire eraly on. Hopefully the first thought applies.

    Think of how many players will be well rested when they are released.:texflag:

    Did you think it was a good thing when we were docked practices for the same thing?

    This comes about because players complain so it isn't an indication of being fired up.

    If I remember right, it was Dan Stevenson that made the huge stink about it. Jordan Black got hurt but I don't remember him wanting to express his hurt vagina to the media.
