UBS AG set a $77.00 target price on Exxon Mobil Corporation and gave the stock a "sell" rating in a report on Tuesday, April 25th. The rating was maintained by BMO Capital Markets with "Hold" on Monday, May 1. 20 funds opened positions while 41 raised stakes.

The Jaguars haven't really had much stability along the offensive line over the last 5+ years, and Linder has been the only high level player in that area since the hayday of Fred Taylor and Maurice Jones-Drew. The Jaguars originally selected him in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft out of Penn State. I fell in love with this city and we have big things coming, changing the culture... He has never made a Pro Bowl, and he finished the 2015 season on injured reserve after three games due to a shoulder injury. "I couldn't think of a better place to play my career".

The Jaguars worked most of their interior offensive linemen at various positions during the offseason program, with Linder among several players working at both center and guard.

"Brandon has proven on the field that he is capable of highly productive performances, and this is a high performance business", said Jaguars Executive Vice President of Football Operations Tom Coughlin.

"We wanted to get it done, so now we can just play ball", Linder said. "Brandon has earned this new contract and the high expectations that go with it".
