Jacksonville Jaguars: Mike Brown Tipped for a Bigger Role Offensively after Justin Blackmon’s Suspension
The struggling Jacksonville Jaguars have had all kinds of problems moving the ball on the offense this season.
Aside from the already known issues at the quarterback position where Blaine Gabbert lost his job to backup Chad Henne, Maurice Jones-Drew hasn’t been able to produce on the ground and the receivers group took a huge hit with the suspension of Justin Blackmon.
Luckily for the Jaguars, Mike Brown will be able to fill the void left by Blackmon.
The second-year wide receiver, who signed with the Jaguars last season as an undrafted free agent, has seen a bigger role in Gus Bradley’s offense this year due to the lack of weapons available and has flourished in recent weeks.
Brown scored the first touchdown of his career against the San Francisco 49ers in London, a game where he tallied 43 yards. He has accumulated 212 yards in the last three games, and with Blackmon sidelined for the reminder of the season Brown figures to start opposite to Cecil Shorts III in an offense that can do lots of damage when given enough space.
The Jaguars will have a difficult challenge against the Tennessee Titans, a team that ranks 28th in total yards allowed through the air but also 24th in interceptions. Henne will probably be under heavy pressure all game long, but if he’s able to put the ball in the air look for Mike Brown to create some havoc against the Titans’ secondary.
He has the speed and the skill set to be a reliable option for the Jaguars offense.
