Gus Bradley won't rule out kicker competition for Jason Myers

Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley addressed the media on Tuesday afternoon and didn't rule out bringing in some outside competition for struggling kicker Jason Myers.

Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Jason Myers has, in a word, struggled so far this year.

Since his Week 2 game-winner against the Miami Dolphins, Myers missed two game-winning field goals against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3, and has missed three extra points so far this season. And when questioned about it on Tuesday afternoon, head coach Gus Bradley wasn't ruling anything out.

I think the most damning statistic against Myers is that the Jaguars have only allowed him to attempt one field goal since his two misses against the Colts. That's one attempt in three games, and zero in the past two weeks.

I don't know what kind of hoops a new kicker would have to jump through to get caught up with a team, or if a change would be more trouble than it's worth. But how much worse could it get when the coaching staff has only gone to you once in the last three games?
