The Jaguars official website confirms T.J. Yeldon is "expected to be the starter as a rookie."

Even the team's in-house writers are handing the job to Yeldon, who will be backed up by Denard Robinson and Toby Gerhart. The second-round pick is impressing early in the offseason program. "He looks really good in short-area change of direction," MLB Paul Posluszny said. "He looks really, really good there. It’s, ‘How does a guy move in space? How athletic is he?’ That’s what stands out. With him, he definitely has it." Yeldon's upside is capped a bit by the Jags' bottom-barrel offense, but he's going to see enough volume to be a RB2.

Allen Robinson (foot) participated in individual drills at OTAs on Monday.

Robinson ran routes in his first team action since breaking his foot in Week 10. "I haven't had any setbacks," Robinson said of his recovery. "It's been going well." The Jaguars will certainly take it slow with Robinson, who was one of the bigger winners of the offseason after the Jaguars failed to add an outside receiver. He'll man the X spot as a sophomore and be a red-zone weapon.

Jaguars claimed QB Jeff Tuel off waivers from the Bills.

They waived UDFA Jake Waters to make room. The Jaguars hired ex-Bills coach Doug Marrone as their assistant head coach/offensive line, which probably explains the match here. Tuel will compete to be the Jags' No. 3 quarterback.

Luke Bowanko took first-team snaps at center during OTAs.

Stefen Wisniewski is still recovering from labrum surgery and may not be ready until training camp. Bowanko struggled as a rookie last season, receiving a negative grade in pass blocking from Pro Football Focus. Neither player has the starting job locked up. Beat writer Ryan O'Halloran suggested Jacksonville could make a push for Pro Bowler Alex Mack when he opts out of his contract next offseason.

Jaguars RB Bernard Pierce's court date for his DUI case has been pushed back to July 28.

Pierce was pulled over on March 18 for driving 55 mph in a 30-mph zone. He admitted to drinking "three shots of Jack" before failing a series of field sobriety tests. The Ravens cut Pierce shortly after the incident, but the Jaguars surprisingly claimed him off waivers. A plodder who offers nothing in the passing game, Pierce will compete with second-year RB Storm Johnson for a roster spot in training camp.

Bills waived QB Jeff Tuel.

Tuel spent the last two years on Buffalo's practice squad. He struggled mightily in his only NFL appearance, throwing three interceptions in a 2013 spot start against the Chiefs. The Bills claimed Matt Simms off waivers to replace Tuel.

Coach Gus Bradley said WR Ace Sanders is "having a very good offseason."

The Jaguars improved their depth by adding Rashad Greene and Neal Sterling with Day 3 picks, but Sanders has the inside track for the final receiver job. Sanders only needs to hold off Sterling and Arrelious Benn to keep his spot.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley has been impressed with what LG Zane Beadles has done in the offseason.

There’s been speculation Beadles could be available after Jacksonville drafted OG A.J. Cann in the third round. Beadles was a run-blocking liability in 2014, but has drawn praise for his improved footwork. Jaguars.com’s John Oehser doesn’t get the sense Jacksonville is counting on Cann to start over Beadles.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero mentioned Jaguars LG Zane Beadles as a player who could interest the Dolphins.

There's been no indication the Jaguars will cut or trade Beadles, but he is coming off a bad first season in Jacksonville, and the Jaguars added third-round G/C A.J. Cann and signed C Stefen Wisniewski to go along with second-year RG Brandon Linder. Beadles could be on the chopping block by the end of summer. The Dolphins are relying on unknowns Dallas Thomas and Billy Turner at guard.

Jaguars hired ex-Jets GM John Idzik as a special assistant to the general manager.

Idzik was under siege from the moment he arrived in New York, but set the stage for this year's big offseason by fixing the Jets' salary cap following the Mike Tannenbaum era. "He'll do a little bit of everything," GM David Caldwell said of Idzik. "He's a great cultural fit for us. He has a great understanding of the salary cap and the different ways to do a contract."

Jagaurs DE Dante Fowler underwent his ACL repair surgery Wednesday.

The surgery was performed by Dr. James Andrews. The only silver lining for the Jags is that the injury occurred early enough for Fowler to be at 100 percent for 2016 training camp.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said he's noticed an improvement in Blake Bortles' mechanics.

Bortles, who posted some of the worst statistics a quarterback can have as a rookie, worked with famous throwing coach/quarterback guru Tom House this offseason. His footwork and motion appear improved as he's shed about 18 pounds. The highly athletic Bortles will also be surrounded by more talent this year in the form of tight end Julius Thomas and running back T.J. Yeldon. He's not an option even in two-QB leagues yet, but there's at least a sliver of hope here.
May 28 - 8:25 AM

Jaguars signed second-round RB T.J. Yeldon to a four-year contract.

Yeldon, the 36th overall pick and third running back off the board in the 2015 draft, is expected to operate as the Jaguars' feature back. There's plenty of RB2 appeal here as the Jaguars try to commit more to their running game. The only concern here is if the Jaguars can get Yeldon enough scoring opportunities.
May 27 - 12:07 PM

Jaguars S Josh Evans underwent offseason shoulder surgery.

He's not taking part in OTAs, but is expected to be fine "in a couple weeks." Evans started 25-of-32 games his first two seasons. The former sixth-rounder out of Florida received poor marks across the board from PFF and is now working as a strict backup following the additions of Sergio Brown and James Sample.
May 27 - 9:21 AM

Coach Gus Bradley said there's a "stronger commitment to the run game" at Jaguars OTAs.

Jacksonville put too much on Blake Bortles' plate as a rookie and realized he has a long way to go in his development. The best way to offset that is to become run-heavy, and that's what the Jaguars are expected to do after adding RB T.J. Yeldon, OG A.J. Cann, C Stefen Wisniewski, and RT Jermey Parnell, in addition to bringing back blocking TE Marcedes Lewis. Yeldon has RB2 upside.
