RTC: Cyprien shows promise
By Michael DiRocco
OAKLAND, Calif. -- Jaguars safety Johnathan Cyprien has always been a big hitter. Now he's starting to show some promise in coverage.
Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union writes that coach Gus Bradley and safety Dwight Lowery saw improvement from Cyprien in that area in the Jaguars' loss to the Raiders last Sunday. He still needs to work on his open-field tackling and also take better angles to ball carriers, but Cyprien showed that he's absorbing things pretty quickly.
Here are some other pieces of Jaguars content from around the web:
The T-U's Ryan O'Halloran details the unusual path that Kyle O'Brien took to become the Jaguars' director of college scouting. O'Brien started out as an intern to the New York Jets' equipment manager and eventually worked for the Patriots and Chiefs before joining he Jaguars under new general manager Dave Caldwell.
O'Halloran also details the storylines for the rest of the week as the Jaguars prepare for Sunday's game at Seattle.
Here's a recap of what you can find on this blog: A scouting report on the Seahawks, the Week 2 version of the Jaguars' top-10 playmakers and a quick breakdown of the Jaguars' spot in the ESPN.com Power Rankings.
John Oehser of Jaguars.com gives you the storylines he'll be following this week.
