Shorts is one of the reasons Bradley feels so good about his team's future. And he's hoping Gabbert's return this week will provide a spark that helps bring things together for the present.
Jacksonville claimed a league-high seven players off the waiver wire when final cuts were made at the end of training camp, and the team still is trying to get everyone on the same page.
"We're seeing flashes of things doing well, but just not enough of them," Bradley said. "It's our consistency. We understand that it's going to take some time just offensively, defensively, special teams. We've had quite a new influx of players, especially at the end of the preseason. So it's getting them caught up and just how we call things, our scheme, the communication that takes place on the field. So we've seen it the last three weeks get better, but just not consistent enough with it."
