How Can the Jacksonville Jaguars Best Use Denard Robinson? | Bleacher Report
The Jacksonville Jaguars have created a new position in the National Football League. The "OW." No, it's not some special pass-rusher created especially by new defensive-minded head coach Gus Bradley. It stands for "offensive weapon," and that's how rookie Denard Robinson is listed on the Jaguars' official roster. The former Michigan quarterback, who was taken in the fifth round by the Jaguars in the 2013 NFL draft, will be switching positions in the NFL. However, to which position and how often remains to be seen.

Babin getting healthy as caravans, rallies end.
The Jacksonville Jaguars wrapped up the 2013 offseason community tour schedule Thursday night with a Stand United Rally at Moosehaven, a retirement community on the St. Johns River in Clay County. For Jaguars defensive end Jason Babin, it was his first community appearance since undergoing groin surgery in early June. Entering his 10th NFL season, Babin said that he is on schedule to be ready for training camp. “I’m about nine days out from being 100 percent,” Babin said.

Who to Watch For - Future Quarterbacks - Black and Teal
Blaine Gabbert was chosen in the 2011 draft to be the quarterback of the future for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Despite some consideration as the number one overall pick, Gabbert fell all the way to number 10 overall before Gene Smith traded up for him. Clearly teams (and scouts all over twitter) had their reservations about Gabbert’s ability to improve his pocket presence and field vision in the NFL. Fast forward to the beginning of the 2013 season: Gene Smith is gone; Blaine Gabbert was essentially benched last year for Chad Henne; the Jaguars are having an open competition for the starting quarterback job. Nobody in the front office or coaching staff has any allegiance to Blaine Gabbert.
