RTC: Appreciate Caldwell's conviction

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It doesn't matter whether you like the Jacksonville Jaguars' selection of quarterback Blake Bortles with the No. 3 overall pick. What does matter is that GM David Caldwell acted decisively when he had the opportunity to grab the player he wanted at the most important position, writes Gene Frenette of the Florida Times-Union.

Fans also should be happy that Caldwell and coach Gus Bradley have the conviction to allow Bortles to sit for a year and develop instead of throwing him on the field right away. They are in a different situation than the previous regime, and they are taking the correct approach, Frenette writes.
