Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson (hand) has had an excellent offseason after recovering from a right hand injury last year, according to general manager David Caldwell. 'All offseason I've been working on regaining strength in my hand,' Robinson said. 'I feel comfortable now where I can make plays happen without thinking.' Caldwell noted that Robinson has been catching everything thrown his way in offseason workouts.
Huddle Up: Robinson, converted from QB as a fifth-round pick last season, had 20 rushes and attempted one pass but surprisingly did not record a reception in his rookie campaign. His versatility is a big plus, but he's going to need to extend his strong offseason into training camp with the added competition at WR this season.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson weighed around 212 pounds when he reported for offseason workouts. Robinson was around 197 pounds but added the weight because he will only be a running back moving forward.
Huddle Up: The 2013 5th-round pick only saw 20 rushes for 66 yards and had no receptions as a rookie last season, but it sounds like he's bulking up for a bigger role this fall.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson was used on three Wildcat plays in practice Monday, July 29. Robinson ran the ball once, handed off to RB Maurice Jones-Drew another time, and completed a pass to WR Mike Brown the other time. Robinson reportedly struggled with the Wildcat during organized team activities (OTAs), but head coach Gus Bradley thinks Robinson has the potential to run the trick play. 'We did it in OTAs and a couple of times he ran the ball and fumbled the ball and he didn't know how to pitch,' Bradley said. 'We're not going to give up on that. (Offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch)'s philosophy is to get it in the playmaker's hands and we want to see if he's a playmaker and the threat he can give us.'
Huddle Up: With the Jags hurting for playmakers, expect the former Michigan QB who's now listed as a RB to do a little bit of everything this season. The only question is whether he get enough touches to make him fantasy-viable.
