Coach Gus Bradley singled out Stephen Burton as someone he wants to step up with Justin Blackmon suspended for the year.
The Jags claimed Burton off waivers from the Vikings just before Week 1. He's missed the last five games due to a concussion, watching Mike Brown shine as the No. 3 wideout. Now that Brown is the No. 2 man, there's a job opening. "We've always been intrigued by [Burton]," Bradley said. "He's 6-1, 220 pounds and [runs a] 4.4. We've been really developing him to see what he can do." It's a name to stash on watch lists.
