JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Maurice Jones-Drew had four empty stalls to his right and two to his left.
And dozens more scattered across the locker room.
It was a clear sign of all the changes surrounding the Jacksonville Jaguars. The team opened its offseason conditioning program Tuesday with another new coaching staff, a new general manager and without several key starters from recent years.
Jones-Drew says "if you don't win, there's going to be changes. ... It's just the reality of the NFL."
First-time head coach Gus Bradley, the energetic former defensive coordinator with Seattle, opened the day with a 45-minute team meeting. His message invigorated players, but many of them struggled with all the empty seats.
The Jaguars parted ways with several veterans, including longtime starters Greg Jones, Daryl Smith and Rashean Mathis.
