Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert, along with fellow Jacksonville rookies offensive lineman Will Rackley and cornerback Rod Issac were three of an estimated 150 rookies to attend a make-do version of the NFL rookie symposium on Tuesday and Wednesday.
“It was a great event they put on for us,’’ Gabbert said. “We’re extremely thankful the NFLPA had the time to put this together for us. We learned a lot of valuable things here and had the chance to get to talk to Mr. Goodell and DeMaurice Smith just kind of about the situation going on right now.”
“It’s a great sign,” Gabbert said of their appearance together. “They’re professionals. They’re professional men. They know how to handle situations like that. They can argue all they want in a closed room, but at the end of the day, they’ve got to go out and tell people how it is and be professional about it.”
