Jaguars news roundup 5/27

USA TODAY Sports

Jacksonville Jaguars news from around the NFL that you may have missed, plus some updates from around the AFC South.

Jaguars offseason report: Blaine Gabbert must win over new regime
You can't blame Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan, or his hand-picked brain trust, for all that has gone wrong with the feeble NFL franchise in recent years. Khan didn't buy the team until late 2011. But Khan, general manager David Caldwell and coach Gus Bradley are in charge now, seeking to restore the hope that tends to wane when a team has had five consecutive losing seasons. So the direction of the future is on their watch.

O-Zone: If you're ever in Raleigh
I just said Shorts looks significantly better than he did last offseason. That’s not just getting open. It’s about route-running, sureness of hands and the consistency with which he is making plays. But before we jump on this year’s secondary too, too much, let’s not start enshrining last year’s in Canton just yet. Last year’s secondary was more experienced and better-known, but I’m not sure just yet there’s going to me a dramatic drop off.

News from around the AFC South:

Colts Sign Former CFL And AFL OLB Caeser Rayford - Stampede Blue
The Colts continue to look for diamonds in the rough that will, hopefully, make their 2013 pass rush a bit more sparkly. Indianapolis has signed outside linebacker Caeser Rayford, formerly of the CFL and, most recently, of the AFL's Utah Blaze. To make room for Rayford on the team's 90-man roster, the Colts waived linebacker Jake Killeen.

Tennessee Titans Defensive Goal: Be Multiple - Music City Miracles
Multiple. That's the message I've gotten from this front office on both sides of the ball this offseason, but especially defensively. They've acquired big guys up front that will allow them to one gap and two gap situationally without substituting. At the LB spot, Gooden was added as a speed linebacker with a safety background. Conversely, Wilson was added as a Safety with a linebacker background. Let's start with a couple of pictures as that should help ground us a little better for the discussion.
