Gus Bradley cancels practice as Jaguars hit up bowling alley
The Jacksonville Jaguars had perhaps the best kind of practice Friday: none.
In a move that likely engendered a lot of goodwill from his team, head coach Gus Bradley called off the team’s practice Friday afternoon — the final of 10 scheduled OTA practices — in favor of a team outing at Latitude 30, a bowling alley/restaurant in the city.

What prompted the reprieve? The team had been performing well during their on-field sessions the past three weeks.
"They were pretty excited," Bradley told jaguars.com. "We’ve had really good practices. We wanted to make sure we have a good minicamp coming up, and it gave us a chance to talk to them about what we expect next week and how we’re going to go about doing this. It’s a nice little break for them."
The Jaguars will return to the field Tuesday to begin their three-day minicamp.
