All 10 of the Jaguars' unrestricted free agents were allowed to test the open market during Monday's "legal" tampering period.
The Jaguars were unable to reach contract agreements with any of their unrestricted free agents prior to the 52-hour moratorium before the start of free agency.
The Jaguars no longer have exclusive negotiating rights for wide receiver Arrelious Benn, linebacker Lerentee McCray, quarterback Chad Henne, guard Patrick Omameh, long snapper Matt Overton, running back Tyler Gaffney, safety Peyton Thompson and tight end Mychal Rivera.
Free agency officially starts on Wednesday at 4 p.m.

5:11 p.m. (Wednesday) UPDATE: The Jaguars are adding even more depth to their secondary and special teams units during free agency.
Jacksonville agreed to terms with Los Angeles Rams safety Cody Davis on a free-agent contract, a league source told First Coast News on Wednesday.
Davis - along with the reported additions of Don Carey and Niles Paul - will strengthen the Jaguars' special teams unit. The 6-foot-1, 203-pound defensive back's ability to play safety also gives the team depth in the secondary.
4:31 p.m. (Wednesday) UPDATE: Happy New League Year! Safety Peyton Thompson and running back Tyler Gaffney have now become unrestricted free agents as they never received tenders from the Jaguars.
Also, teams are free to sign all free agents to contracts.
3:44 p.m. (Wednesday) UPDATE: The Jaguars are close to reaching an agreement with Washington Redskins free-agent tight end Niles Paul, according to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.
Paul has spent all six of his NFL seasons in Washington. The Nebraska alum has caught 68 passes for 856 receiving yards and two touchdowns during his career.
The 6-foot-1, 242-pound tight end was a fifth-round pick in 2011. He was the Redskins' special teams captain in 2017. He has played the majority of his snaps on special teams throughout his career.
Paul missed the entire 2015 season with a dislocated ankle.
3:02 p.m. (Wednesday) UPDATE: The Jaguars have reached a contract agreement with Detroit Lions defensive back Don Carey, according to Associated Press writer Mark Long.
The versatile safety can also play cornerback. He is also a notable special teams player.
Carey spent the first two years of his career in Jacksonville. He was claimed off waivers by the Cleveland Browns in August 2009. He was eventually cut in 2011 and ended up spending seven seasons in Detroit.
Carey's presence likely signals an end to Peyton Thompson's tenure with the team. Thompson will become an unrestricted free agent if he doesn't receive a restricted tender by 4 p.m.
1:12 p.m. (Wednesday) UPDATE: New York Jets tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins has visits planned with the Jaguars and the Seattle Seahawks, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson.
He is planning a trip to Seattle first. As a Washington alum, a Seahawks signing would serve as a homecoming for the 25-year-old tight end.
Seferian-Jenkins has some lumps in his off-the-field profile. However, he has really turned his life around since joining the Jets in 2016. Last season, the 6-foot-5, 262-pound tight end collected 50 catches for 357 receiving yards and three touchdowns.
The Jaguars' front office got a close look at Seferian-Jenkins during joint practices with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2016. It will be interesting to see the type of money Seferian-Jenkins commands on the open market.
9:43 a.m. (Wednesday) UPDATE: According to Sirius XM's Adam Caplan, the Jaguars reached an agreement with cornerback D.J. Hayden on a contract worth $19 million over three years with $9.5 million in guaranteed money. He can make up to $21 million with incentives.
That's a lot of money for Hayden, but as a league source told First Coast News, it's a deal dictated by the cornerback market. As players continue to receive massive deals (looking at you: Houston and Aaron Colvin), the money for the next tier of players goes up. I am surprised the Jaguars wanted to spend that much on an external nickel corner regardless.
8:56 p.m. (Tuesday) UPDATE: The reported Moncrief deal is for one year and $7 million, according to ESPN's Field Yates. The report by Yates states the deal has another $2.6 million in incentives attached.
The "prove it" deal that many assumed Robinson would need to take instead goes to Moncrief. The risk-reward scenario here is logical. If Moncrief deals with injuries or under-performs, the Jaguars can move on.
Either way, the Jaguars could and should hedge their bets in the draft. Ideally, the draft should determine Allen Hurns' fate and provide insurance for Moncrief for the long-term.
Along with all of the moves directly impacting Jacksonville, former Jaguars defensive end Chris Smith received a three-year deal with the Cleveland Browns, according to Cleveland.com.
The Jaguars traded Smith to the Cincinnati Bengals for a conditional seventh-round pick last offseason. He played in all 16 games last season, so the Jaguars were awarded a seventh-round pick in this year's draft. For those wondering: yes, the Jaguars keep the pick, even though the Bengals won't keep Smith.
5:55 p.m. (Tuesday) UPDATE: The Jaguars are working on a free-agent deal with Detroit Lions cornerback D.J. Hayden, according to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.
The former first-round pick spent last season in Detroit after a four-stint in Oakland with the Raiders. Hayden has three career interceptions. He may be the Jaguars' replacement for Colvin.
5:11 p.m. (Tuesday) UPDATE: The Jaguars are expected to sign Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Donte Moncrief, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Moncrief is an intriguing addition because he has starting experience and is only 24. He produced 152 catches for 1,875 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns during his four-year career in Indianapolis. Moncrief has battled ankle and shoulder injuries over the last two seasons.
3:30 p.m. (Tuesday) UPDATE: The Jaguars have agreed on a four-year deal with wide receiver Marqise Lee, according to ESPN. Lee can make up to $38 million and he is guaranteed $18 million in the deal.
Cornerback Aaron Colvin is expected to sign a four-year deal with the Houston Texans, a league source told First Coast News, as first reported by ESPN. The Jaguars will likely move forward with Tyler Patmon and Jalen Myrick as nickel corners. Jacksonville may also try to address the position in the draft.
1:49 p.m. (Tuesday) UPDATE: The Jaguars have officially announced the Wynn re-signing.
12:26 p.m. (Tuesday) UPDATE: Exclusive rights free-agent wide receiver Shane Wynn has re-signed with the Jaguars, according to his agent, Ed Wasielewski. Wynn missed all of last season with a leg injury. He was placed on injured reserve following the Jaguars' final preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons.
11:02 a.m. (Tuesday) UPDATE: Long-time Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny announced his retirement on Tuesday. He was set to become a free agent on Wednesday.
Posluszny, 33, spent seven seasons in Jacksonville. He made his first and only Pro Bowl as a member of the Jaguars organization in 2013.
The 6-foot-2, 232-pound linebacker collected 1,214 tackles, 16 sacks, 51 pass breakups, 15 interceptions and eight forced fumbles during his lengthy career.
10:03 a.m. (Tuesday) UPDATE: The Jaguars have shown strong interest in Indianapolis Colts linebacker Barkevious Mingo, a source told First Coast News. He would likely compete for the starting strong-side linebacker job and contribute on special teams.
8:38 a.m. (Tuesday) UPDATE: Tuesday morning is off to a hot start.
The Jaguars have reached a record-setting contract agreement with All-Pro left guard Andrew Norwell, according to ESPN. The deal is for $66.5 million over five years with $30 million in guarantees. Norwell will fill a left guard spot that has been in constant flux for the Jaguars.
Robinson is also leaving The Pride. The wide receiver is expected to land with the Chicago Bears, according to ESPN. Robinson is from Detroit, so he will be close to home and move to the NFC North.
The Jaguars had interested in wide receiver Sammy Watkins but he has agreed to a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.
4:32 p.m. (Monday) UPDATE: The Jaguars are in the mix for Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Sammy Watkins, a league source told First Coast News on Monday. Watkins would be the external replacement for Robinson if the current Jaguars wide receiver left in free agency. Watkins produced 39 receptions for 593 receiving yards and eight touchdowns during his only seasons in Los Angeles.
The Jaguars also extended a second-round tender to restricted free-agent running back Corey Grant. The tender allows the Jaguars to match any offer sheet that Grant signs in free agency. If they chose to pass on matching an offer sheet, the Jaguars would receive a second-round pick. The running back can also sign the tender and receive a one-year, $2.9 million contract.
Jacksonville extended exclusive rights tenders to tight end Ben Koyack and offensive tackle William Poehls. The players can either sign the tenders or not play in 2018.
2:13 p.m. (Monday) UPDATE: The Jaguars are among the teams interested in Jets tight end Austin Seferin-Jenkins, according to the News Tribune's Gregg Bell.
The Jaguars clearly need a pass-catching upgrade at tight end. The team currently has Marcedes Lewis, James O'Shaughnessy and David Grinnage under contract at the position. Former seventh-round pick Ben Koyack is an exclusive rights free agent.
2:00 p.m. (Monday) UPDATE: Along with reporting the Bears and the Packers interest in Robinson, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reported that Dallas Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick has asked for his release from the Dallas Cowboys. If Colvin bolts during free agency, Scandrick would be a logical nickel replacement. The Cowboys may release or trade the veteran defensive back.
Scandrick was a fifth-round pick in 2008. He has played his entire career in Dallas. The Jaguars have added a free agent from the Cowboys in each of the past three offseasons: Barry Church in 2017, Mackenzy Bernadeau in 2016, Jermey Parnell in 2015.
12:56 p.m. (Monday) UPDATE: If Robinson leaves in free agency, the Jaguars may have a new option at wide receiver. The Chicago Tribune's Brad Briggs reports that Bears restricted free-agent wide receiver Cameron Meredith will receive an original-round tender from Chicago.
Meredith was an undrafted rookie free agent when he began his career in Chicago. That means the Jaguars could sign Meredith to an offer sheet without the fear of losing draft picks. The Bears would receive five days to match any offer made by the Jaguars.
Meredith suffered an ACL tear during the Bears' third preseason game against the Tennessee Titans this past year. However, before missing last season, Meredith produced 66 catches for 888 receiving yards and four touchdowns in 2016.
