The Jacksonville Jaguars today held the first of 12 on-field practices

scheduled for the month of June. Every player on the 82-man roster

participated except for two players currently playing in the NFL

Europe League.

"This is an opportunity to go on the field for all of the young

players," said Jaguars head coach Tom Coughlin. "We have a new

direction on defense (under new coordinator Dom Capers), and we

have a lot of players who have a lot of learning to do. On special

teams, this is when we begin to spot people in where we think they

can best make a contribution. And we have a few changes on

offense, too."

The June pre-camp will continue through June 24, with a total of 10

practices and two walk-throughs at Ferrell Fields. Practices on June

21 and June 24 will be open to the media.

"By the end of June, we will have put in our situational offense,

defense and special teams," added Coughlin. "Then we'll re-group

at the end of July for training camp, when the rookies will have

heard everything three times."

The Jaguars' training camp will begin on July 29. The team's first

preseason game is August 13 vs. the Carolina Panthers at ALLTEL
