Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said Tuesday that rookie quarterback Blake Bortles continues to progress in his development throughout OTAs, and the Florida Times-Union's Ryan O'Halloran writes that the third overall pick agrees with his coach.

"It's coming [along] really good, meeting every morning with [offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch] and having Chad [Henne], Ricky [Stanzi] and Stephen [Morris] to bounce stuff off of," Bortles said. "Just getting the reps is obviously the best way for me to progress -- be on the field, watch Chad do it, and then get the opportunity for me to do it."

Bradley said that Bortles is beginning to show the kind of poise needed to lead a team on the field.
