Jacksonville Jaguars news around the Internet you may have missed.

Initial thoughts from Jacksonville |

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- I got to the Jacksonville Jaguars practice fields this morning just three plays into full-team work. Some quick thoughts on what I saw and heard:

Jaguars OT Luke Joeckel shows sure footing in practice |

Jaguars defensive end Jeremy Mincey has a simple criteria for judging rookie offensive tackle Luke Joeckel. "I haven't seen him knocked on his butt yet," Mincey said. "That's a big plus. I usually like to get a hold of the young rooks and welcome them to the league, but he's been holding his own."

Hayes in right place, right time |

JACKSONVILLE - As Geno Hayes sees it, the timing is right. Early in his career, maybe he wouldn't have felt right where he is now. Had he played for Gus Bradley as a head coach before this season, maybe he wouldn't have been ready to hear what he's hearing.

Demotion aside, Bradfield focused on remaining a Jaguar |

Cameron Bradfield was given every opportunity to lock down a starting job at right tackle last season, but the Jaguars decided to give it back to Guy Whimper in the last two games. Despite No. 1 draft pick Luke Joeckel now being entrenched in his old starting job, Bradfield isn't feeling bad about the demotion. The undrafted free agent from Grand Valley State simply wants to focus on doing everything he can to be a part of the final 53-man roster.
