Gardner Minshew is “accurate, tough, and obviously he’s a great leader so he’s got the intangibles you want in a QB,” said Jaguars’ OC Jay Gruden. (Mike Giardi on Twitter )
Minshew led the Jaguars to a 6-6 record across 12 starts. “He has shown a skillset where he can sit in a pocket, step up, make things happen outside the pocket,” Gruden added. The Jaguars did sign QB Mike Glennon this off-season, but HC Doug Marrone confirmed that Minshew was “no doubt” the starting QB. The 24-year-old threw for 3,271 yards with a 21:6 TD:INT ratio across 14 games. Minshew is currently 24th among all quarterbacks in the latest expert consensus rankings.
