After investing heavily in the WR corps this offseason, the Jaguars probably hoped that, one week into training camp, the two bright spots of the unit weren’t Cecil Shorts and Brian Robiskie. That has been the case, however, as one source described the new-look unit as a “work in progress,” adding that too many footballs have wound up on the ground (and not just the ones QBs Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne have thrown at their receivers’ feet).

Free-agent acquisition Laurent Robinson appears to be pressing, though the club isn’t too concerned with his slow start. Mike Thomas is a bigger mystery, we hear. He simply hasn’t blossomed the way the club envisioned since giving him the contract extension early last season. But a source said Thomas is remaining upbeat and taking everything in stride, including being replaced by Shorts at top pick Justin Blackmon’s “Z” position earlier this week.

Speaking of Blackmon, we hear the Jaguars aren’t backing off — and rightly so — their insistence on being protected financially if the top pick’s off-field troubles persist.
