First Off the Field: 7/28
A few Jaguars veterans got their first training camp break, but mostly Sunday was a day about offense. And specifically, it was about offensive improvement. On a day when the temperatures cooled considerably, and a day when four veterans had the day off of practice, Jaguars Training Camp 2013 continued Sunday morning with a two-and-a-half-hour practice under gray skies at the Florida Blue Health and Wellness practice fields. The temperature was 83 degrees, with the attendance at 1,706.

Jaguars middle linebacker Paul Posluszny had a quick reaction when he heard the team signed defensive tackle Roy Miller in March.“We were all giving each other high fives because he’s that kind of lineman,” Posluszny said.Posluszny is hopeful the 6-foot-2, 310-pound Miller can keep opposing offensive linemen off him and the other Jaguars linebackers this season. The 26-year-old Miller anchored a Tampa Bay line last season that finished No. 1 in the NFL in run defense, 8 yards a game better than second-best Pittsburgh.

Inside the Jaguars: Rackley feeling awesome
You won’t hear much complaining from Will Rackley. Rackley, the Jaguars’ third-year offensive guard, said he doesn’t mind the dog days of training camp, and don’t expect to hear him griping about much else in the coming days. Not in this camp. Not this year. “It’s awesome, man,” Rackley said Sunday on the third day of Jaguars 2013 Training Camp, being held at the Florida Blue Health and Wellness practice fields outside EverBank Field.
