Blake Bortles shows improvement at Jacksonville Jaguars OTAs

There is a big difference between being a “good” quarterback in the NFL and being one of the “great” quarterbacks in the NFL. Blake Bortles wants to be a great quarterback, even an elite one for the Jacksonville Jaguars. A coach can teach mechanics, style of offense, a new system and even work on footwork and release, but unless the player wants to be the “guy” who everyone...

There will be plenty of competition for the Jaguars free safety spot

One of the things that has to excite the Jacksonville Jaguars coaching staff more than anything going into OTA’s is the thought of there being competition all over the roster for the first time in what seems to be forever.

Dante Fowler’s lost rookie season delays a potential slump-busting experience for the Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars haven’t been good in a long time. A lot of that can be traced back to the fact they haven’t found a reliable quarterback since the Mark Brunell days, but don’t discount the fact the Jags have for years failed to find somebody who can consistently produce as a pass-rusher. Some facts: With 196 total sacks since 2008, the Jags are the only team in football...
