Jerry Sullivan Has His Work Cut Out For Him

New Jacksonville Jaguars wide receivers coach Jerry Sullivan will have his work cut out for him when he begins working with the Jaguars wide receiver group. He'll be working with a group that didn't produce a single player with over 500 receiving yards on the season. The team is expected to add some players in free agency and potentially the draft, but for the hold overs there will be a lot of work to be done.

"That's one group (wide receivers) we have to get some improvement out of," Jaguars offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski said on Jaguars This Week. "I know Jerry Sullivan will work some wonders with some of those guys, and if we do bring in some new talent - whether it's through the draft or free agency - I think we can get that group up to speed to where it will help our quarterback." Sullivan is renowned in league circles for his ability coaching wide receivers and was even a personal target for Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, who requested to his head coach the team hire Sullivan.
