Blake Bortles is just one of many topics covered over the past few days in Jacksonville Jaguars news.
"Call it obvious, but there is no bigger factor for the Jaguars in 2015 than Blake Bortles. If the second year gunslinger lights it up, this team will be dangerous down the stretch. Even if Bortles plays like an average quarterback, this offense will be dramatically improved. For starters, the talent around him is better. The young group of receivers will have another year experience. Julius Thomas is a top five tight end. Moves were made to create competition along the offensive line. T.J. Yeldon is a perfect scheme fit for the Jaguars zone-block scheme. All of this adds up to reduce the burden on Blake Bortle’s shoulders."
"Following an up-and-down rookie season which saw Bortles turn the ball over 18 times, it was clear the Jaguars needed to invest in the offensive side of the ball this offseason. That started with the addition of new offensive coordinator Greg Olson."
"Still, while a large chunk of the roster is a mystery, we can speculate as to how things will go down. After covering practices throughout the organized team activities and minicamp phase of the offseason, some of the subtle clues have come to light.While this is all speculation, as pads (and Chris Clemons, for the most part) have been absent thus far, the OTAs period was very informative in determining how the final roster may turn out."
"“#MOREJAX is perhaps the most focused and fitting marketing campaign we’ve created,” said Jaguars President Mark Lamping. “MORE represents the passion, desire, and focus we have, which is exactly the type of team Dave Caldwell and Gus Bradley are building here in Jacksonville. It also represents our franchise’s desire to achieve success off the field, and to build a franchise that will make our fans in the North/Central Florida and South Georgia region proud.”"
