"Anything they ask me to do, I’m doing," Robinson said. "Now I feel more comfortable [returning kicks] than I was my rookie year."
General manager David Caldwell has said that while Robinson will get work returning kicks, he'd still have a significant role on offense. The running back hasn't dwelled on the comment.
"You just go out there and do yourself," Robinson said. "Do your thing and have fun and get better every day."
Robinson averaged 4.3 yards per carry on 135 rushes last season while racking up 582 yards and four touchdowns on the ground. The Jaguars are expected to use rookie T.J. Yeldon as their primary runner in 2015.
According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the Jaguars are planning to move Gerhart around on offense at H-back in addition to running back. This also means the Jaguars will be in the market for additional help at running back.
Gerhart was plagued by injuries in 2014, which paved the way for
Robinson's 2014 season ended on injured reserve with a mid-foot sprain.
Gerhart's season ended with just 326 yards and a patry 3.2 yards per carry average. Robinson emerged late in the year and ran for 582 yards and held a 4.3 yards per carry average.
When asked if
"He was a pleasant surprise for us [in 2014] after his first year," Bradley said. "He came back stronger and bigger and really shocked us. He had a couple of games in a row [of 100 yards rushing] where he did some really nice things for us and it was unfortunate he had the [foot] injury at the end. We're really pleased with his progress and we're hopeful that he takes the next step. Where that takes him in the rotation, that's yet to be seen. He's doing a great job coming back from his injury. The future is bright for him."
Bradley also indicated that he envisions Toby Gerhart having a place with the team on first and second downs, which could cut into Robinson's playing time. Robinson had his season cut short last year due to a foot sprain. He rushed for 582 yards and four touchdowns in seven starts for Jacksonville. It remains to be seen if he'll have the edge over Gerhart and Storm Johnson for playing time under new offensive coordinator Greg Olson next season.
Robinson, who had 582 rushing yards and four touchdowns this year, started seven games for Jacksonville.
