Jaguars' Denard Robinson ready for second try as kick returner
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Jaguars running back Denard Robinson is getting a shot at being the team's kick returner this offseason, a role he hasn't performed since early in his rookie season, but he's ready for the challenge, ESPN.com reports.

"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.

Jaguars' Toby Gerhart feels for first time since last September
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart is expected to fill an H-back role after the team selected T.J. Yeldon in the second round, but he's worried less about his role and focusing on the fact that he's back to full health, ESPN.com reports.

"It’s feeling good," Gerhart said of the ankle that bothered him all of last season. "I feel healthy for the first time since last September. Feeling good and excited to go out there and be healthy and fresh this spring and show what I can do and compete."

Gerhart's new role will open him up to be a bigger part of the passing game.

"I’m learning the F [H-back] and running some of that and also taking just as many reps at tailback and competing and just trying to be the best I can be and see what happens," Gerhart said. "A lot of it so far has been a lot of routes and stuff like that, not so much iso downhill, more get me out in the flat, get me in pass pro and get out. It’s exciting to move around and we’ll see what happens."

Gerhart averaged just 3.2 yards on 101 carries last season while scoring two touchdowns. His average of 9.3 yards per reception represented a season high.

Jaguars LB Paul Posluszny working on being a more vocal leader
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny is doing what it takes to become mroe of a vocal leader for the defense, according to ESPN.com

Posluszny has been one of the leaders on the defensive side of the ball, though he hasn't necessarily been someone to scream or yell at his teammates. What he's trying to change, however, is being someone that anyone can turn to on or off the field. 

"Just having more conversations, making sure I’m available to guys," Posluszny said. "Say, ‘Hey, you know you can ask me anything if there’s anything I can help you with.’ That’s the way I’d like to do it, more on a one-on-one basis, just so they know I’ll be there for them to help them with anything they need."

Julius Thomas trying to fit into Jaguars' offense
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Jaguars tight end Julius Thomas said after Wednesday's organized team activity that he intends to make it work with quarterback Blake Bortles, reports The Florida Times-Union.

"There is no 'Here's me coming in, and Blake's going to get on my page.' I'm going to be on Blake's page," Thomas said. "Whatever he expects, that's what I am going to do. He's the quarterback. He's the one in control of that huddle, and I like catching passes so I will make sure I do exactly what he wants."

With Thomas entering his first season with the Jaguars, he said it will take time to develop a rapport with Bortles.

"I think that getting good chemistry with a quarterback probably takes a couple of thousand passes," Thomas said.
