The Jacksonville Jaguars just wrapped up the third day of this year’s organized teams activities and it looks like everything went off without a hitch. Head coach Urban Meyer has the team running smoothly. While it’s too early to tell how good the Jags are going to be in 2021, players are raving about the new culture and how the energy in the building.
It’s important to keep things in context though. At this point of the offseason, you will hear about everyone being in the best shape of their life. You will also hear about how things feel different when compared to last year. Nevertheless, if the Jaguars end up having a successful season, you can circle back to the OTAs. This is the time of the year when the team is implementing its vision and laying the foundation for the regular season.
Here are three observations about this Jacksonville team after three days of OTAs.
1. The Jacksonville Jaguars are giving their players everything they need.
Jaguars center Brandon Linder — along with Meyer — met with the local media on Day 3 of the OTAs. The veteran touched on several topics. Among them was that players are getting access to better resources on the performance side.
"All the different therapies, activation stuff, equipment, that kind of stuff. We got a couple new facilities going up, and then the food. The food has been better, all these different shakes and whatnot”"
Linder adds that they are getting all those kinds of perks because the team expects them to perform at a high level, “we have more at our hands to help us show our potential on the field, show our value”. Meyer previously talked about giving his players the best of the best. After all, if they are going to push them, they need to give them anything they need to succeed.
