Jaguars Sign Josh Lambo To Extension
The Jacksonville Jaguars signed kicker Josh Lambo to an undisclosed four-year contract extension on Wednesday. He has missed only three of 41 field-goal attempts and three of 44 extra points since he joined the team in 2017. Lambo is the only kicker in franchise history to have back-to-back seasons with a field-goal percentage of at least 90. He made 19 of his 21 field-goal tries last season and has made six of his seven tries from 50-plus yards with the team. He missed the last three games with a groin injury but should be fine for 2019. While Lambo has been an accurate kicker with the Jags, he's not particularly enticing in fantasy in an offense that could struggle again to move the football consistently.

Christian Kirk Optimistic For OTAs
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Christian Kirk (foot) is optimistic about his chances of participating in organized team activities this spring. The wideout broke his foot in Week 13 against the Packers and finished the year on Injured Reserve after a promising rookie campaign. "Im feeling great," Kirk told 98.7 FM Arizonas Sports Stations Burns & Gambo on Wednesday. "Recoverys going well, just being patient and making sure all aspects of my bodys 100 percent when I step back on the field during OTAs." Kirk led the team in receiving yards before his injury and was second to Larry Fitzgerald in yards (590) and third in catches (43). In his second season under new head coach and offensive mind Kliff Kingsbury, Kirk has a real chance to break out if the team fixes their offensive line issues.

Jets Expected To Move On From Isaiah Crowell
New York Jets running back Isaiah Crowell is not expected to return after the team signs a free-agent running back next month. He has $2 million fully guaranteed if he's on the roster by the third day of the new league year (March 15), so he'll likely be cut by then. Crowell just turned 26 years old, but he's not in the team's future after running 143 times for 685 yards (4.8 yards per carry) and six touchdowns in 13 games in 2018. The former Brown had a few big games on the ground but didn't do much outside of that, and the Jets would like to pair a free-agent signing with Elijah McGuire moving forward. Crowell is still young and should latch on elsewhere, but it's unlikely to be in a lead role.
