Jaguars 2022 Offseason: Week 2 OTAs – WR Christian Kirk

Jaguars 2022 Offseason: Week 2 OTAs - WR Christian Kirk

JACKSONVILLE – After two and a half months, Christian Kirk feels it.

The Jaguars’ veteran free-agent wide receiver loves his new quarterback, new franchise and new head coach. And those are the reasons Kirk is smiling these days.

“There is a sense of excitement,” Kirk said this week as the 2022 organized team activities continued at TIAA Bank Field.

Kirk, a fifth-year veteran, was arguably the most prominent of the team’s unlimited signings last March. The team loved its potential, its veteran presence and reputation as an accurate route runner capable of taxing defenses – and Head Coach Doug Pederson this week praised Kirk’s offseason approach so far.

“He’s really one of the guys who’s been here to learn and pick up the attack,” Pederson said of Kirk, who caught 236 passes for 2,902 yards and 17 touchdowns for the Arizona Cardinals in four seasons. “He and [quarterback] Trevor [Lawrence] seem to get a little bit better every day by being on the same page. I just love the way he works and the way he practices.

“He’s a good role model for the young guys. He doesn’t say much when he’s there, he just does his business and has been very stable that way.”

Kirk, a second-round selection by Arizona in the 2018 NFL Draft, spoke to jaguars.com this week about multiple topics. Among them: Lawrence, the No. 1 overall roster in the 2021 NFL Draft and a player Kirk says this offseason was as expected.

“The talent is crazy,” he said with a smile. “Some of the balls he throws on the run, and just his athleticism… He’s impressive. It makes sense that he was number 1 overall and had so much success in his career.”

Kirk has been working closely with Lawrence in recent weeks, and he said the work will continue once the official offseason schedule ends in mid-June.

“I really like his approach, his attitude when he steps into the building,” Kirk said. “Everything is intentional. He knows what he wants to achieve. Just by talking to him and spending some time with him, you know he wants to make that leap in sophomore year and lead this team to success.

“He did it for many years at Clemson and I know he’s used to that. He’d like to come back to that and it’s my job and the job of all the other new guys to facilitate that and bring him back to that level. ” “

Kirk also discussed Pederson’s impact on the Jaguars. Pederson, appointed head coach in early February, has spoken extensively in recent weeks about rebuilding a culture and trust within the organization – and Kirk said he has seen positives in Pederson’s approach.

“That’s 90 percent of this game, is confidence — having that mindset that when you get on the field you’re the best team that day,” Kirk said. “He definitely brings that swagger and that confidence. It rubs off on all of us.”

Kirk on a Jaguars wide receivers group that also includes Zay Jones, Laviska Shenault Jr., Marvin Jones Jr., Laquon Treadwell and Jamal Agnew: “The most important thing for us is that we have so much talent in our room. We have to restrain ourselves Keeping a high standard. There are a lot of expectations for us. We know that. That’s our job to deliver. Anytime something isn’t up to our standard, we’ll be held accountable. We like that.”

Pederson on sophomore S Andre Cisco: “He’s done a really good job this off-season by getting in there. He’s a great communicator, just watching him with the defense and how he moves and how he passes. Again, it gets really good for him once we get the pads on and see his physique and how he can play. He’s a really good footballer for us and I’m excited to see him at training camp.”
