Jaguars' Thomas won't try to measure up to Broncos' numbers
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

New Jaguars tight end Julius Thomas told SI.com he has already begun working with quarterback Blake Bortles.

"It’s exciting, that first time you get to work out with your new quarterback," he said. "We’ve got a couple thousand more reps to go, but I’m really looking forward to that chemistry and growing with that entire offense."

The expectations will be elevated for Thomas, who is coming off two great seasons with the Broncos. However, Thomas isn't out to prove he can have the same production without Peyton Manning throwing him passes.

"I think I’ve got to be a little bit cautious on trying to prove so much," he said. "I think I’ve just got to go out there and work my hardest, and do everything I can to win every route, and see what happens. I don’t want to set a goal of 'I gotta have these numbers.' I’m just going to work my hardest every day, do everything I can to become a better player, and do everything I can to help out my team and this offense."

Thomas is also confident he will be able to coexist on offense with veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis, who has been with the team since 2006.

"I don’t think we’ll have any problem playing together," he said. "I was actually talking to him this weekend. I ran into him; we both live in L.A. He’s a really good guy. I’ve met him a couple times before. We both have the same marketing company, so we know the same people, and people that I respect speak very highly of him. I think we complement each other very well. There are going to be things that he can teach me, and I can learn from him."

Jaguars excited about future of QB Blake Bortles
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Despite the play of Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles regressing as the season wore on, head coach Gus Bradley is excited about his future with the team, reports NFL.com.

"He's everything we hoped for as far as mentality and competitiveness," Bradley said Tuesday, via the team's official website. "... I knew he was tough, but just how tough.

"And how fast he would take over the team. The team really gravitates toward him offensively, defensively and special teams-wise, and I didn't know it would happen that fast."

Bortles, the third overall pick in the 2014 draft, started 13 games last year, throwing for 2,908 yards with 11 touchdowns and 17 interceptions.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee are expected to be the Jaguars' starting outside receivers this season, per the team's website. Justin Blackmon remains suspended indefinitely, and Cecil Shorts left the team via free agency.

Under this scenario, Allen Hurns would be a backup or possibly play the slot.

"The Jaguars like Lee and Robinson on the outside," the website said. "That’s where they envision them."

WR Greg Jennings has multiple options in free agency
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

The market for free agent wide receiver Greg Jennings seems to be expanding, per ESPN.

The Jaguars said at the NFL meetings on Monday that they are interested in Jennings, but no visit has been scheduled. He recently visited with the Panthers on Saturday. The wideout also is drawing interest from the Dolphins, who reportedly set up a tentative meeting between the two sides.

A return to the Packers has not been ruled out of the question. Despite Jennings' criticisms of the organization and Aaron Rodgers' leadership ability, Packers general manager Ted Thompson said that would not affect a reunion, per Packersnews.com.
