The final preseason game is quickly coming up and the Jacksonville Jaguars gear up for the regular season in the latest articles and news on the team.
"The Caldwell/Bradley era has produced a 7-25 record in their first two seasons, including 19 losses by double digits. But the two have stocked the team with young talent, such as quarterback Blake Bortles and receiver Allen Robinson, and added key free agents, such as defensive tackle Sen’Derrick Marks and tight end Julius Thomas.In fact, during the team’s annual kickoff luncheon on Tuesday, Bradley said a good foundation has been laid and it’s now time for the team to start winning games. That’s what he told the players in a meeting before training camp began.“Our objective is to build a team that owns the AFC South,” Bradley said. “So that was our mindset and we told them we’re building to have a team, and I said, ‘This year we built the team.’"
"On the flip side, I find it hard to imagine the Jaguars finishing with the same record as last year. Even if Bortles is half the guy we’ve seen so far, the Jaguars should get better play from most of the second year guys on offense and defense. Even if the Jaguars float through the season without a consistent pass rush, I don’t know if the Jaguars win less than 5 games. Another 3-13 season and we may not see Gus Bradley back as head coach in 2015."
"Might the Jaguars look at trading for Seattle’s Bruce Irvin? Alfie Crowe of Big Cat Country seems to think so saying, “Irvin, who’s in the final year of his rookie deal and doesn’t appear likely to re-sign for Seattle, would be a great addition to the Jaguars while Dante Fowler Jr. is out with a torn ACL and for the future. The Jaguars are very likely going to target another pass rusher in the 2016 offseason be it in free agency or the NFL Draft, so why not try take care of that a year early?”"
