A less generous sort might suggest that picking a name out of a hat might be as good an option.
But new Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said he wanted to keep the repetitions in OTAs even between quarterbacks Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne.
“It’s going good,’’ Bradley said, via Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union. “We’re rotating by period. There’s a lot of competition and they’re battling it. Everything we do we’re trying to create some sort of competition for our team. Hopefully as OTAs go on, we get more and more of those situations to evaluate them.”
Considering the fact the Jaguars didn’t add anything meaningful to the depth chart there, those two will hack it out all summer, in what appears to be the least-appealing competition for a starting job east of Oakland.
Bradley didn’t want to suggest a lean at this point, saying he wanted to wait to evaluate them until they were in pads. Either that, or he can’t bear to look.
The Jags can’t even muster a decent competition for the third job, as undrafted rookie Jordan Rodgers is out following sports hernia surgery, leaving fellow undrafted rookie Matt Scott to get all the extra snaps before training camp.
