Jacksonville Jaguars Roundup

Inside the Jaguars, 05/30

Andre Branch said without question getting drafted was a bigger deal, but signing a contract and getting NFL money? That’s not bad, either. Branch, a defensive end from Clemson and the Jaguars’ second-round selection in the 2012 NFL Draft, on Tuesday became the first player from the team’s six-player ’12 draft class to sign with the team. "It’s just a dream come true," Branch said Wednesday. "It’s one less thing I have to worry about. Now, I can just focus on football. Words can’t even explain."

Lewis and Miller are as anxious as anyone to put the nightmare of last season behind them. Their lack of production, for completely different reasons, was one of many factors why the Jaguars' offense finished last in the NFL in total yards, passing yards and first downs. Though much of the blame was pinned on the struggles of rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert, his biggest physical targets feel regret for not contributing more to the offense.
