JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars are taking the first step, albeit a small one, toward fixing their problems.
Turk also had punts of 32 and 23 yards in the second half of Sunday's 30-20 loss. He raised his arms to mock fans who loudly booed him after one of his poor punts.
"When you have seven punts on the day and one of them is good, that's not going to work for you," Del Rio said Monday.
Turk, who ducked out of the locker room after the game, spoke to reporters Monday and blamed his problems on Jacksonville trying to make a hang-time punter into a directional kicker. He also sounded like he expected to be released.
"I want to be where I'm wanted," said Turk, who signed a one-year contract worth nearly $2 million in July to replace free agent Adam Podlesh. "I want to be where I feel I can contribute what my skills are. I kind of feel like this is the Adam Podlesh experiment since I've come in. I really haven't been able to do what I've been doing for the last 19 years. But I've been attempting it and I've been inconsistent."
