Jaguars’ Doug Marrone fires warning to players about offseason fitness
It’s fair to say a lot of things went very wrong for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2018, and coach Doug Marrone is trying to get 2019 off on the right foot.
Marrone said Monday that he warned players of the importance of offseason workouts and OTAs, noting that those who didn’t put in the work a year ago ended up spending time on the sidelines this season.
Doug Marrone says he spoke to the #Jaguars players of the importance of offseason workouts and OTAs and that those who tested poorly in the spring were injured during the season.

Might this be a public warning to Leonard Fournette? It’s not hard to read it as such, as the running back played in just eight games for Jacksonville last season and is clearly in the doghouse right now. Whatever happened last offseason that led to the Jaguars going from the AFC Championship to 5-11 is not going to be allowed to repeat itself.
