Jacksonville Jaguars Roundup

Gene Frenette: Jaguars must learn from Terrance Knighton's nightmare | jacksonville.com

Before addressing Terrance Knighton's awful situation and the cautionary tale it should represent for his Jaguars teammates and NFL players, let's get a few things straight about what remains a nightclub incident with conflicting details. First, this is not an attempt to defend or condemn what the Jaguars' defensive tackle did or failed to do in the April 8 altercation at Club Pure, which resulted in Knighton being hit in the left eye with a vodka bottle. His wounds required surgery and, thankfully, he can now see out of the eye and hopes to return to the team in time for training camp.

Even a rainstorm that forced the Jaguars to practice indoors Thursday on the final day of the team’s veteran orientation mini-camp didn’t dampen coach Mike Mularkey’s enthusiasm for the three days of workouts. "It was a good start for our staff,’’ he said. "We got a lot accomplished, especially for the new phases.’’

Jaguars won't combine training camp practices with another team this year | jacksonville.com

For the past two seasons the Jaguars have conducted joint training camp practices with the Atlanta Falcons. It gave them a chance to face an opponent without much on the line. It's easier to evaluate players in a practice against a different team because it more closely simulates what it will be like in a game when opposing schemes and plays are less predictable. There's also the advantage that it breaks up the monotony of training camp. "I like that idea," said Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey, who was the Falcons offensive coordinator when they combined practices with the Jaguars. "I like it a lot."

Cerebral violence

This is one misconception Mike Mularkey doesn’t much mind. Mularkey on Thursday held a press conference wrapping up his first mini-camp as Jaguars head coach. During it, he mentioned the word "violent" as being a key to his vision. Professional, soft-spoken and quick with a smile, Mularkey was told perhaps "cerebral" seemed a better fit. "Keep thinking that," he said, smiling.
