Jaguars coaches see bright future for RG Brandon Linder

The Jaguars couldn’t be happier that they traded up to acquire Brandon Linder in the third round of the 2014 draft. Linder, a South Florida native who played for the University of Miami, started 15 games as a rookie at right guard last season. The sky seems to be the limit for him. After the players put on shoulder pads Sunday for the first time in camp, Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said Linder has exceeded the team’s expectations. “I would think that he is better than what we thought,” Bradley said. “We knew he was pretty good, but we’re very pleased with him.” read more

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley says QB Blake Bortles handling blitz well

A successful quarterback must make defenses pay for blitzing. Second-year Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles appears to be making strides. Jaguars coach Gus Bradley was pleased with how Bortles handled blitz situations in Sunday's practice. "The blitz period really showcased," Bradley said. "He's always had poise. I think what you're seeing now is with that poise he's making good decisions. When he knows what he's supposed to do with the ball. It just comes out. They're tight, they're accurate, so it was a good session for him." read more
