Rookie tight end David Njoku said he is looking forward to exchanging words with Gipson on the field Sunday. The one thing he did say was he really enjoyed his time with the fans and there are players that he had relationships with, but I'm not going to get into all of that.

Kirksey and Gipson talked Tuesday, and Kirksey said he didn't take the comments personally. "The best team wins". "Like I said, it doesn't bother me". We know that we are going to get the best of the Cleveland Browns.

"I'm going to say what I'm going to say to get my team riled up".
The 27-year-old was among a group of established veterans that the team chose not to re-sign, and Gipson said his first chance to play against the Browns was "definitely going to be personal, man, for sure".
Jacksonville, riding its first three-game winning streak since 2013, hits the road to take on the Browns (0-9), who have shown signs of improvement in recent weeks and could be helped by a forecast of frigid weather conditions.
