As a rookie in 2013, Robinson was limited to 20 carries for 66 yards, and his role was undefined after making the transition from college quarterback to NFL rusher.
"Around Week 14 last year, he said, 'Gus, what do I need to do?' And he has really competed," Bradley said. "I think he's up to 212 pounds and he came to us at 197. He has taken a different approach. He's coming in to get ready and he understands he's a running back."
Robinson played just 52 snaps last season, running 20 times for 66 yards. He fumbled Week 3 at Seattle and fumbled at the goal line Week 15 against Buffalo. Bradley disputed the notion that Robinson is a "gimmick guy."
“He can maybe run outside zone and get to the point where he runs north," the coach said. "But how can you tell off 10 runs?”
Robinson ran 20 times for 66 yards as a rookie.
The Jaguars could opt to let veteran Maurice Jones-Drew walk in free agency and have Robinson contribute as a running back, though he'd have to put on some more weight first. Last year Robinson had 66 yards on 20 carries and no receptions.
Robinson had one carry for 11 yards, and Thomas had one catch for 13. Thomas' catch was the first of his career.
