Jags' Bradley: Blake Bortles is 'diving into mechanics' this offseason
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley told reporters that quarterback Blake Bortles is "really diving into his mechanics this offseason," per the Florida Times-Union on Thursday.

"We’re really excited about him. I know there are some things he needs to work on and the growth that will take place from this year to next year, we’re all excited about. It’s great that he ended up playing [as many games as] he did. I think his mindset now is, ‘What can I do to get better?’ I know he has to understand defenses better but also his mechanics, he’s really diving into that this offseason. I just sense from him that he’s a guy that wants to take the next step and when he has confidence like that and it builds through the offseason, I think he’s going to take another step."

Jacksonville ranked last in scoring in 2013 with 15.4 points per game. The team is hoping that new coordinator Greg Olson can develop the strong-armed Bortles, who accounted for 2,908 yards, 11 touchdowns and 18 turnovers as a rookie.

New OC wants to capitalize on Blake Bortles' running ability
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

New Jaguars offensive coordinator Greg Olson said he doesn't want to make Blake Bortles strictly a pocket passer, reports the Florida Times-Union.

"When a play does break down protection-wise and you have a guy that can go get yards, you don't want to discourage it," Olson said. "There is a time to make something to happen with your feet. For other quarterbacks, that's not part of their makeup. That's a strength of Blake's and we want him to continue to utilize that."

Bortles rushed 56 times for 419 yards, mostly on scrambles, and averaged 7.5 yards per carry. Olson wants to find a way to reduce the 55 sacks Bortles took in 14 games last year. Many of those came on plays in which Bortles held the ball too long.

"As we get better working in conjunction as an offense there should be less of those opportunities," Olson said. "Then, he can become more of a pocket passer. But, we never want to discourage him using his ability."

Jags QB Blake Bortles must learn new playbook
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

With the Jaguars replacing offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch with Greg Olson, quarterback Blake Bortles will be forced to learn a new playbook entering his second season. General manager Dave Caldwell doesn't think it will be a problem.

“I think he’s up to it and there will be some carryover from system to system in the passing game," Caldwell told the Florida Times-Union. "For the most part, he can start April 1 – he doesn’t have to wait until after the draft and catch up. He’ll be fine.”

Jacksonville hopes Olson can develop the strong-armed Bortles, who accounted for 11 touchdowns and 18 turnovers as a rookie.
