Jaguars still searching for improved pass rush

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have the most inept pass rush in the league over the last five years.

The Jaguars have tallied 120 sacks over that span, even after changing players, coaches and schemes. Nothing really worked.

Maybe new head coach/defensive guru Gus Bradley can turn things around.

Players certainly have bought into Bradley's defensive design. They insist there's better talent and more depth at the tackle and end positions, and believe the aggressive, bump-and-run style at cornerback could disrupt timing between quarterbacks and receivers and possibly pay dividends.

Jacksonville's sack total the last five years is seven fewer than the next closest team, Kansas City, and nearly 100 behind NFL leaders Pittsburgh (218) and Minnesota (218).
