Jags may snag Leftwich from Ravens

The Jacksonville Jaguars seem to have some sort of infatuation with the Baltimore Ravens. They hired Jack Del Rio, a former Ravens linebackers coach, interviewed Ravens player personnel director Phil Savage, hired James Harris away from the Blackbirds to be their VP of player personnel. Now, they seem to covet the man the Ravens most want in this year's draft. The Jaguars seem to have set their cap for quarterback Byron Leftwich. It doesn't seem to make much sense that a team installing a West Coast offense would want an immobile quarterback who predominantly ran a shotgun offense in college, but there are legitimate reasons for their affinity with the Marshall product.
