Denard Robinson Is Easing Into His Role With the Jaguars

Former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson was supposed to be sort of do-it-all rookie for the Jaguars this season.

Former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson was supposed to be sort of do-it-all rookie for the Jaguars this season. With his QB background, it made him an obvious consideration as a Wildcat option, and the Jags planned on trying him at receiver, too. 

But it seems like all of the varying responsibilities have weighed heavy on Robinson's mind. 

The Associated Press reported that Robinson was having ball security issues early on in camp. 

“We did take less off of him,” coach Gus Bradley said Thursday, via the Associated Press.  “We’ve got him more towards kickoff returns, some of the things he’s doing offensively.  We’re taking some things off of his plate to see if that just frees up his mind a little bit more.”


Robinson seemed to be positive about everything, and sees an opportunity to make some kind of contribution to Jacksonville squad that likely won't win the AFC South division.
