Jacksonville Jaguars Daily: Keenan McCardell has contract advice for receivers

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars-OTA Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports

Keenan McCardell to Jacksonville Jaguars receivers: Focus on play and contracts will come -
Earlier this offseason, Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson shared his opinion that he’s earned a contract extension with the team despite a third season that featured a drop in production from his breakout 2015 campaign. No new deal for Robinson has come together, however, and the Jags may be waiting to see how things go in their first full year with Doug Marrone as head coach before making any calls about Robinson’s future with the team. The same could be true of Marqise Lee, who joined Robinson as a 2014 second-round pick and as the subject of some advice from wide receivers coach Keenan McCardell.

Why it’s almost impossible for the Jacksonville Jaguars not to improve -
The Jacksonville Jaguars finished 10 games last year within a single score of winning. They lost eight of them. And according to Setting The Edge, two wins out of 10 single-score games is an incredibly unlucky finish that will almost assuredly mean an improved record in 2017.

Leonard Fournette ready to put on pads, work his way up depth chart -
Throughout the Jaguars’ organized team activities and minicamp, rookie Leonard Fournette showed flashes to make quick cuts and outrun players in the secondary after catching passes out of the backfield. However, it wasn’t enough to change Coach Doug Marrone’s mind yet. He still has Fournette as his No. 2 tailback behind veteran Chris Ivory, keeping his word that the top-rated back, who rushed for 3,830 yards and scored 40 touchdowns in three seasons at LSU, must work his way up the depth chart even on a football team that won only three games in 2016.
