Jimmy Smith has been the biggest part of the Jaguars' passing game since the second season in team history, but Smith finished a preseason littered with dropped passes with, yet, another drop and Del Rio addressed the matter in his postgame press conference.
“You saw what you saw. It wasn't a reaction to the play,” Del Rio said when asked if the dropped pass prompted the coach to take Smith out of the game, “but he did drop it. He's had too many drops. We expect him to catch it. For anybody on the roster, you've got to produce.
“It's not an ultimatum,” Del Rio added. “We're in the production business. Now that our roster is stronger, we may rotate guys more freely.”
