Jaguars taking it slow with rookie QB Bortles

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The Jacksonville Jaguars don't want to over-coach quarterback Blake Bortles.

They're exposing pieces of the playbook to him during a two-day rookie minicamp, which began Friday, and have no immediate plans to tweak his mechanics. They just want to study him for now.

Coach Gus Bradley says " We want to learn how he handles the huddle, how he throws. But you're not going to see five people coaching him every play and run to him and say, 'How 'bout this and this and this?' I think it's a little overkill. But we'll watch and evaluate and knock out certain pieces."

Bortles made his Jaguars debut Friday and took the majority of snaps during the 49-player camp.

He completed 11 of 14 passes during 11-on-11 drills.
