According to a report by NFL Network's Ian Rappaport, the Jacksonville Jaguars plan to move running back Toby Gerhart to more of an H-back role.
This move seems like a good idea as Gerhart disappointed mightily in his first season in Jacksonville. Gerhart averaged just 3.2 yards per carry as he gained just 326 yards on 101 carries with two touchdowns after being handed the starting running back job.
Gerhart has shown solid hands out of the backfield and the Jaguars used him best in that role.
The report gives more credence to the idea that the Jaguars might be targeting free agent running back DeMarco Murray, who led the NFL in rushing last year. It's also being widely reported that the team has interest in Broncos tight end Julius Thomas.
