Jaguars WR Allen Robinson credits Gus Bradley for his success

BY foxsports • January 29, 2016

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson may be coming off a breakout 2015 season, but he's expecting even bigger things next year thanks to presence of head coach Gus Bradley.

Robinson told NFL media this week the continuity offered Jacksonville's decision to retain Bradley for next season has him believing he and the Jaguars' offense can help lead the team to the playoffs.

The 2014 second-round pick credited Bradley's coaching style with helping him emerge after an injury-shortened rookie season. Robinson caught 48 passes for 548 yards and two touchdowns before missing the final six games of 2014 with a fractured foot. He returned to catch 80 passes for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2015.

"As a team, it was so awesome to hear that Gus was coming back," Robinson said. "As a young player, having such a positive coach and having him help me through a lot of different things -- I think it was great for me to be able to have that person to lean on because a lot of rookies, when they show up and get injuries, their coaches just throw them under the bus. But Gus didn't do that. He was adamant about keeping me abreast of what was going on, making sure I was traveling with the team in the preseason, all of that."

Robinson, whose 14 receiving touchdowns set a new franchise record, will take part in his first Pro Bowl on Sunday. If he can continue his success playing under Bradley, it figures to be the first of many trips to Hawaii for the 22-year-old.
