Jaguars to give Blake Bortles more control of the offense.


The Jaguars will implement a no-huddle scheme to what they hope will be one of the NFL’s more explosive offenses. The offensive coordinator for the Jaguars, Greg Olson, stated that he plans on having Bortles in a no-huddle more often in games. “When we evaluated the end of the season, we thought one of the things Blake was pretty comfortable with was our two-minute package so we’ve incorporated more of that.”

The no-huddle offense was used sparingly, last season, as Bortles only attempted 40 passes without a huddle, but he threw no interceptions and connected for two touchdowns. Bortles will be able to take more control of the offense as Olson believes the third year QB is getting better.”We’re excited right now where he’s at mentally and where he’s at physically. It’s been a good five days of OTAs for Blake. He’d be the first guy to say he’s not there yet, but he’s certainly miles ahead of where he was at this time last year, which is to be expected.”

The no-huddle could prove to be highly effective as the Jaguars offense boast one of the top young receiving tandems in the league, Allen Robinson, and Allen Hurns. On top of that, they have one of the NFL’s top tight ends, Julius Thomas. It almost seems that the Jaguars are ready to become serious contenders in 2016.
