Miami Dolphins tight end Julius Thomas: Struggles with Jacksonville Jaguars made me “a better person” -
New Miami Dolphins tight end Julius Thomas was very introspective Wednesday regarding his past two seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Thomas admitted Jacksonville "wasn't a fit for me." He signed a $46 million contract two years ago and recorded just 30 receptions for 281 yards and four touchdowns last season, his lowest totals since his rookie year. However, Thomas said he has no ill will toward his former team and something good came out of it away from football.

Blake Bortles isn’t bothered by criticism -
The Jacksonville Jaguars get back on the field Thursday to continue voluntary organized team activities (OTAs), and as we all know most of the focus is going to be on quarterback Blake Bortles and his throwing mechanics. There’s not much you can tell from OTAs, since there is no pass rush or danger of being hit, but knowing that everything looks fine in that setting is still a good sign.

OTAs are “extremely important” time for Paul Posluszny -
His comfort level is increasing. That’s an important point about Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny’s transition, but he’s also not as comfortable as would be ideal. And to Posluszny, that makes the coming weeks about as critical as he can imagine.
