What do all the defense changes mean for the Jaguars? Per Bleacher Report
Bradley is a proponent of a 4-3 “under” front, where the defensive line shifts away from the strong side of the formation. As Jene Bramel of FootballGuys pointed out for The New York Times, the weak-side defensive tackle aligns between the guard and tackle, while the weak-side end plays outside the tackle (often well outside).
Running back Maurice Jones-Drew is likely to be the team’s top offensive weapon again, provided he makes it all the way back from a serious Lisfranc injury in his right foot that cost him 10 games last season and ultimately required surgery. His extensive rehabilitation is ongoing. This week at OTAs, The Florida Times-Union reported he was running 30-yard dashes at three-quarter speed. “Lately it’s been one day on, a day off, two days on, a day off — it’s part of the process,” he said. “I’m closer than I think. I just want to take my time and make sure we do it the right way.” The Jags need his production. He needs a big year because he’s in the final year of his deal.
