Jaguars New Number One

Jacksonville coach Jack Del Rio has left little doubt that when training camp opens next fall, newly acquired wide receiver Jerry Porter will line up as the Jaguars' No. 1 receiver.

Porter signed a six-year, $30 million deal in the offseason in leaving the Oakland Raiders after eight up-and-down seasons in the Bay area.

"He's ready to explode," Del Rio said. "He's a guy who's taken great care of his body and even though he's about to turn 30, he's probably coming into the best three or four years of his career, and we feel we're going to catch him at a perfect time.

"It's a good situation where you've got a guy that's hungry for success who has been in the league, who's got some polish and some explosiveness. We feel like the way we utilize our weapons here offensively, we're going to be able to plug him in and get some terrific production out of him. We're excited about having him on board."
