Jay Gruden talk picking up in Jacksonville

As NFP reported previously to watch Jay Gruden as a serious candidate to be the next Jacksonville Jaguars head coach, now Albert Breer of NFL Network is on board with Gruden to the Jags as well.

Gruden, of course, is in the midst of coaching the Bengals in their playoff game against the Texans this week, but once the Bengals' season is finished, expect him to be interviewed quickly in Jacksonville.

Gruden has ties to the area, having spent a number of years coaching the Orlando Predators in the Arena Football League. So while, brother Jon appears content to stay in the booth as part of Monday Night Football, Jay's candidacy in Jacksonville looks to be gathering momentum.

It makes sense because Gruden has done a superb job in guiding Andy Dalton through his rookie season, and the Jaguars need someone who can help improve Blaine Gabbert's pocket presence and overall field awareness.
