Jacksonville Jaguars Daily: Marcell Dareus says trade was ‘overwhelming’

NFL: Denver Broncos at Buffalo Bills Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

Marcell Dareus admitted that his trade to the Jacksonville Jaguars was “overwhelming” -
In a span of seven minutes, Marcell Dareus used the words shocking, overwhelming and emotional to describe what he's felt since he was traded to the Jaguars on Friday evening.

From the phone call from the Buffalo Bills informing him of the trade to his arrival in Jacksonville amid the annual Florida-Georgia game at EverBank Field to meeting the coaching staff to quiet moments in his hotel room, Dareus said he was still trying to adjust even as he participated in his first practice Monday morning.

Leonard Fournette, Brandon Linder, and Dede Westbrook return to practice -
The Jacksonville Jaguars have been relatively lucky with injuries so far in the 2017 season, with only Allen Robinson suffering a major injury and hitting injured reserve. The team was without rookie sensation Leonard Fournette against the Indianapolis Colts two weeks ago, as the team didn’t feel he was back enough from an ankle injury he suffered against the Los Angeles Rams, but on Monday Fournette returned to practice. He wasn’t the only one however, as both rookie wide receiver Dede Westbrook and veteran center Brandon Linder were also on the practice field.

The Jacksonville Jaguars should stick with Blake Bortles -
Let's go ahead and put the notion of the Jacksonville Jaguars bringing in a quarterback to replace Blake Bortles in the middle of the season. It's not going to happen.

Jacksonville's brain trust of Tom Coughlin, David Caldwell and Doug Marrone had a chance to bring someone in during free agency to challenge Bortles. It didn't happen.
