JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville’s receivers might as well have been wearing red jerseys on the first day of training camp. They were as untouchable as rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence.
Nearly a month after the NFL fined the Jaguars and coach Urban Meyer a combined $300,000 for excessive contact during an offseason practice, Meyer pretty much had his guys playing two-hand touch to open camp.
Jacksonville was docked $200,000 and Meyer $100,000 earlier this month.
The punishment stemmed from an early June practice in which the league deemed receivers and defensive backs had too much contact during 11-on-11 drills.
