    Jaguars sign first-round draft pick Blake Bortles




    The Jacksonville Jaguars signed 2014 first-round draft pick Blake Bortles to a contract, the club announced this morning.  Bortles was the third overall pick in the draft and is the seventh of the club’s nine draft picks to sign a contract.

    Bortles was the third quarterback the Jaguars have drafted in the first round, and the sixth overall and highest drafted in franchise history.  The former Central Florida quarterback was the highest drafted player in school history.

    “We are excited to get Blake under contract as we finish up minicamp,” Jaguars General Manager David Caldwell said.  “Blake has progressed really well this offseason and has brought a great attitude to work each day.  He is highly competitive and very passionate about football.  He knows where he needs to get better and is willing to do the work.  He’s a down to earth guy, a blue collar guy and he just wants to be the best he can be.”

    “It’s nice to get the contract done as we head into the final part of minicamp and prepare for training camp,” Bortles said.  “I can’t thank Shad Khan, David Caldwell and Gus Bradley enough for the opportunity they have presented me...   [Read More]




    Jaguars Will Hold Football Practice at Bartram Trail High School




    JACKSONVILLE – (via jaguars.com) The Jaguars are taking training camp back to school – and into the community.

    And they’re doing it this summer in about as significant a fashion as an NFL team can do it, moving a training camp practice to a local high school.

    The Jaguars will hold one 2014 training camp practice – Monday, July 28 at 7 p.m. – at Bartram Trail High School in St. Johns County, Jaguars President Mark Lamping and General Manager David Caldwell announced Wednesday morning.

    The practice will be free and open to the public.

    “It’s just another sign that the Jaguars want to be fully integrated into the community,” Lamping said Wednesday after the announcement, which took place at the Florida Blue Health and Wellness Practice Fields shortly before the Jaguars’ second practice of 2014 organized team activities.

    “Sometimes, you need to take the show on the road.”

    St. Johns County Superintendent of Schools Joseph Joyner said the practice will be a huge event for the county. The NFL rebuilt Bartram Trail’s field as part of preparations for the Super Bowl at EverBank Field in February 2005.

    “There will be a big crowd,” he sa...   [Read More]




    Jaguars Get High Marks on Draft Picks




    JACKSONVILLE – The grades are pretty much done.

    And for the most part, the Jaguars’ draft has received an overwhelmingly positive response from those who grade such things.

    Mel Kiper, Jr., of ESPN. Pete Prisco of CBS Sports

    Rob Rang of CBSSports.com and NFLDraftScout.com. Bryan Fischer of NFL.com.

    Evan Silva of Rotoworld. Sports Illustrated. Peter Schrager of Fox Sports.

    All weighed in on the 2014 NFL Draft in recent days, and as it turned out, the Jaguars’ draft carried quite a bit of weight with all of the aforementioned analysts, who one by one ranked the Jaguars’ effort over the three-day draft among the best in the league.

    Kiper, one of the most highly-recognized draft analysts, liked the Jaguars adding wide receiversMarqise Lee and Allen Robinson in Round 2, and gave the Jaguars an “A.” Chris Burke and Doug Farrar of SI.com called getting Lee and Robinson in Round 2 “remarkable,” and gave the Jaguars’ overall draft an “A-.”

    While some analysts were disagreed over the selection of quarterback Blake Bortles of Central Florida at No. 3 overall, Prisco loved the selection and...   [Read More]

    Learn How You Can Fight a Cold with Food




    Here we go again…Cold and flu season is right around the corner, and prevention is the best medicine. But when you already have a bug, getting rid of it and feeling normal again is the goal, right? Well, did you know that you can fight back by eating to boost your immune system? Cold medicines generally only manage symptoms and do not actually cure the illness, but with nutritional support you can supply your immune system with what it needs to help you beat that cold or flu bug.

    If taken immediately at the first signs and symptoms of a cold, supplements derived from the Echinacea herb are known to reduce severity and duration. The same is said to be true for a 1,000 mg dose of Vitamin C taken daily. The benefit of taking either supplement may lead to shortening the amount of time you have a cold and/or making it milder.

    Boosting certain white blood cells called monocytes and lymphocytes may help rid a cold sooner. White blood cell production is supported by certain vitamins and minerals. The following are good food sources of these nutrients:

    Citrus fruit (including orange juice) – folate, Vitamin C

    Cocoa – copper

    Dark green leafy vegetables – folate, copper, be...   [Read More]
