Jaguars defense buying into Gus Bradley

USA TODAY Sports

We all know the Jacksonville Jaguars are installing a new defensive system with head coach Gus Bradley, similar to the system he ran while with the Seattle Seahawks. Not only is the team digesting a new system, but defense could have as many as seven new starters on the defensive side entering the 2013 season.

It generally takes time for a team to take in a new system and buy what the coach is selling, but veteran cornerback Marcus Trufant, who played under Bradley, thinks they're headed the right direction.

"It’s still a process, but I think we’re ahead of the curve," Trufant told John Oehser of Jaguars.com. "I think everybody appreciates Gus as a person, as a coach – just the way he is, the joy and enthusiasm he brings to the game. I think everybody’s buys in. You know you’re going to get the same thing from Gus, good or bad. It’s good to know the coach has your back."

Bradley has installed nearly the whole defensive scheme through OTA practices and Trufant says they're headed the right direction.

"We’ve pretty much put in the whole book, just so we can get a look at it, Trufant told Oehser. "There’s going to be a learning curve, but we’re right on track."
