Journey Through The Jungle: 06/04/14

Journey Through The Jungle provides a quick roundup of Jacksonville Jaguars news from different spots around the web.

 

The Jacksonville Jaguars‘ current plan regarding Justin Blackmon is to have the wide receiver return once he’s reinstated from an indefinite suspension for multiple violations of the NFL’s substance-abuse policy, league sources told ESPN.

It’s more than being healthy, and more than what’s going on around the Jaguars, though no question those things are exciting to the fourth-year receiver.

It’s how he feels in the present, and how he plans to approach the future. Mostly, he’s excited about the possibility of what he can become.

I talked here about how I think Blake Bortles is a good fit with Jedd Fisch’s offense due to Fisch’s tendencies to lean towards a fast pace and quick-striking passing game. This plays right into Lee’s strengths, as he does his best work when you simply just get him the ball as soon as you can and let him create on his own. Fisch implemented a lot of bubble and smoke screen passes to let receiver create yards after the catch.

The farther Lee gets away from the line of scrimmage, the less he’ll “win” his matchups, so it’s better to just make it to where he can the ball quickly and do his damage post-catch. With Fisch, and Bortles for that matter, Lee is a very good fit.

What does Warner think about Jacksonville Jaguars first-round pick Blake Bortles?  Should the Jaguars keep Bortles on the bench for his entire rookie season?  Can they afford to let him sit and learn for the year?
