Virtually each outdoors observer is not believing both Jacksonville Jaguars head coach City Meyer or offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell once they recommend that rookie and first general draft decide Trevor Lawrence is not a lock to be the group’s beginning quarterback over Gardner Minshew when the Jaguars open the common season on the Houston Texans on Sept. 12.
Meyer instructed reporters Friday he continues to talk with Bevell and passing-game coordinator Brian Schottenheimer concerning the depth chart and added he appears to know when he’ll announce his ultimate determination for Week 1.
“I do [have a timeline] in my very own thoughts, however as soon as once more, it is dialog that the three persons are having day by day,” Meyer stated, per Michael DiRocco of ESPN. “In concept, it might [go through the final preseason game], however I might relatively not.”
Jacksonville closes the preseason on the Dallas Cowboys on Aug. 29, and coaches across the NFL are anticipated to take a seat their starters over that weekend to keep away from damage considerations. Meyer stated he’ll determine on Saturday which of his two prime signal-callers will begin Monday’s exhibition contest on the New Orleans Saints.
Logic suggests Meyer is merely trying to bolster Minshew’s worth on the commerce market by way of a contest few are taking significantly. Then once more, this is similar coach who thought giving Tim Tebow reps at tight finish this summer time wasn’t a whole waste of time, so maybe all ought to assume he is critical about probably naming Minshew and never Lawrence QB1 earlier than Labor Day.
