New Jags pieces fitting in

There are plenty of new faces in the Jaguars locker room and more to come before Gus Bradley's new look team takes the field against Miami in August. Right now as the club comes together during offseason workouts it's a chance for the newcomers to build some camaraderie. Justin Forsett will take his place in the backfield and was impressed by the group he joins. "It's been great so far, real tight knit group here, lot of young guys excited to play football and want to win" says Forsett.

For some the chance to play for this coaching staff was too good to pass up. Included in that group is new wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi who can't wait to start working under position coach Jerry Sullivan. "It was a huge part of the decision, I got a chance to meet coach Sullivan up in Minnesota at one of Fitz's (Larry Fitzgerald) camps, saw how he coached, what type of guy he was, just thinking if I ever got the chance to work with him I would leap at the opportunity, and here it is" says Massaquoi. It'll be a fresh start for the former Georgia Bulldog after opening his career in Cleveland: "You can't always decide where you start but whenever you get a new opportunity, a fresh start, you want to take advantage of it and I feel that way about this situation."

Like Forsett, new defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks was already familiar with the Jags organization from his time with an AFC South rival. The former Tennessee Titan enjoyed his first interaction with coach Bradley. "Honestly when I came here and met him, we talked a lot about the defense, the scheme, what he liked about me, but it just seemed like the conversation was way deeper than just football" says Marks. Fans hope the new additions can make a difference this fall.
