Versatile Jacksonville RB Toby Gerhart will pull wagon for Jaguars

Versatile Jacksonville RB Toby Gerhart will pull wagon for Jaguars

The Jaguars aren’t predicting a single statistic for new starting running back Toby Gerhart, but when discussing him last week, offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch didn’t mince his analysis. “Toby will be our workhorse,” Fisch said. When Gerhart and his No. 21 hit the practice field Friday morning for the start of training camp, it will signal a new era for the Jaguars’ running game. For the first time since 2006, Maurice Jones-Drew is not in Jacksonville, having moved on to Oakland. The Jaguars’ new plan at tailback is, not shockingly, going young. read more

Jones-Drew: London deserves NFL franchise

Raiders running back Maurice Jones-Drew said that he thinks London deserves a full-time NFL team. Jones-Drew will make his second trip to play a game in London this season. He played for the first time at Wembley Stadium in 2013 as a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars, and will play there again in 2014 with Oakland. “You know what? I think they deserve one.

The former All Pro running back, now at the age of 29, had serious questions about his abilities, as did onlookers. The Jaguars among them. Every NFL player comes to the point...
