Mike Mularkey cancels last Jaguars OTA

The Jacksonville Jaguars already were going to be the first team to conclude the OTA portion of their offseason, but Friday they found out their break would come a little bit earlier than expected.

As a reward for the work the players and coaches have put in, Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkeycanceled Friday's practice -- their final OTA -- and took them all to play paintball, according to Gene Frenette of the Florida Times-Union.

"(The players) have earned a chance to get away from the stadium and the field, and go enjoy a little bit of something different off site," Mularkey said. "Be together, be with the coaches, do a little paintball adventure. I just thought they've earned it.

"The guys have dedicated themselves to come in here, committed themselves and done everything the right way. I just told them when they do things the right way, good things come to you. I felt like this was a good time for us to get away from football and go have a little fun together."

The Jaguars are off next week before conducting a mandatory three-day minicamp on June 12-14.
