When the Jaguars parted ways with their 2012, 3rd Round Draft Pick Bryan Anger in the offseason, many expected a downgrade in talent at the punter position.  Instead, Jacksonville went out and lured one of the best legs in the league, Brad Nortman ($8.8mil/4 years), away from the Superbowl runner-up Carolina Panthers and it's paying off.  Since landing in DUVAL, Nortman is punting lights out ranking 2nd in the NFL in "Net Punting Average" and adding 9 kicks downed inside the 20 yard line through the first 5 games.  Jags Illustrated Senior Writer Zac Blobner, caught up with the former Wisconsin Badger earlier this week to talk about his time so far in the 904.
