T.J. Yeldon is expect to do big things for the Jacksonville Jaguars and he makes the news for maybe not seeing himself there yet.
"“I’m just out there to compete and work my way up to the top, see what I can do. … I feel like I can be a three-down back, but I’m just out there trying to do what I do. I’m still learning, so I’m not trying to say I’m a three-down back or anything right now. I’ve done it before at Alabama, but it’s a different league now, so we will see.”While perhaps not too impressed with himself, Yeldon has impressed plenty of others during the Jaguars’ OTAs and minicamp, which finished last week."
"There’s no doubt the Jaguars need work. They were 21st in rushing last season (102.1 yards per game) and have averaged just 88.8 yards per game rushing over the past three seasons. Only Atlanta (86.3) and Arizona (84.4) averaged fewer yards per game in that span.The last time the Jaguars ran the ball successfully was 2011, when Maurice Jones-Drew led the NFL with 1,606 yards. That was the last time a Jaguars running back cracked 1,000 yards. Since then 24 teams have had 1,000-yard rushers."
"Henderson still calls the Jaguars “We” and has paid close attention to the franchise since his playing days ended in 2011. He’s also stayed close to the area with his restaurant Big John’s Crumpy’s Wings & Things on the Southside. He is enjoying life after football but admits that he misses playing on the field with his teammates."
