Keeping 5 QBs for training camp not 'far-fetched,' says Gus Bradley

The Jaguars are one of two teams in the NFL with five quarterbacks on roster, and may keep all five for training camp at the end of the summer.


The Jaguars and the Eagles are the only two teams with five quarterbacks currently on roster and head coach Gus Bradley said it's "not far-fetched" to believe that the Jaguars could keep the five quarterbacks on the team for training camp at the end of July, according to Ryan O'Halloran of Florida Times-Union.

Since the hiring of Bradley and general manager Dave Caldwell, the team has preached competition and the battle at the quarterback position will obviously draw plenty of attention. While Blaine Gabbert remains the huge favorite to be the starter for the team, it's too early to rule out Chad Henne, Matt Scott, Jordan Rodgers and Mike Kafka as players potentially worthy of a roster spot.

In 2012, the Jaguars finished the season ranked 21st in total passing yardage and 23rd in passing touchdowns. Gabbert started 10 games, finishing the year with 1,662 yards, nine touchdowns, six interceptions and a 77.4 passer rating, while Henne started six and finished with 2,084 yards, 11 touchdowns, 11 interceptions and a 72.2 rating.

Scott and Rodgers were added in undrafted free agency following the 2013 NFL Draft and Kafka was claimed on waivers on Tuesday after he was waived by the New England Patriots.
