Jaguars looking into joint camp practices

The Jaguars could possibly be bringing back the ever popular joint-sessions with an opposing team in training camp.


After being taken off the schedule last year by then head coach Mike Mularkey, a training camp fan favorite might be making a comeback at Jaguars camp this summer, and no, it's not the Oklahoma Drill.

During an interview following the University of Florida's pro day on Tuesday afternoon, Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley was asked by ActionSports360's Brent Martineau if the team would be looking into holding joint training camp practice sessions with another team this summer. Bradley confirmed that the team is at least in the preliminary stages of making it happen.

"I know Dave has talked about that (joint sessions), so I'll wait to hear from him and some of the conversations he's had. He's done it before in Atlanta, we have not in Tampa and Seattle, but talking to some teams that have done it they've gotten a lot out of it, so I think we're open to it.", said Bradley.

While any formal announcements of the joint practices actually happening and/or what team the Jags would participate with is likely months away, the team has held joint camp sessions in the past with both the New Orleans Saints and the Atlanta Falcons, the team which would make the most sense considering the relatively short distance and Caldwell's relationship with the staff there.

The Jaguars last held joint sessions with the Falcons in 2010 and 2011, practicing at the Falcons facilities in Flowery Branch, GA in '10, and at the Jaguars facilities in '11, which culminated with a nationally televised pre-season game between the two teams.

To hear Bradley discuss the potential practice sessions, as well as Gus and GM Dave Caldwell's thoughts on FA, the UF Pro Day, and more check out the interview in it's entirety here.
