"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.
"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.
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."
Dr. James Andrews performed the surgery.
Fowler will miss his rookie season as a result. He was the team's first-round selection and the draft's third-overall selection.
"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.
