Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said his message to the players Monday was micro and not macro in nature — focus on this opening phase of the offseason program and not the big picture of the regular season.

“I’m always one of those guys who says, ‘Hey, let’s be where our butt is,’ meaning, ‘Let’s be in this moment right now,’” Marrone said Tuesday at EverBank Field. “If you’re grabbing toward the future and looking beyond, you’re going to miss all of the small things.”

Marrone stressed to the players that 2017 is over and a division title and trip to the AFC championship game don’t guarantee anything this year.

“People are going to want to go back to last year,” he said. “Last year, we wrapped that in a box. There are lessons we learned from it. We appreciate the season, we appreciate what went on, but now we’re sitting here 0-0.

“Before we even get to the first game of the year, we have to take all of these steps. If we put our sight on that right now, we’re going to miss something here in the beginning [while] building this foundation.”

A key point for Marrone was making sure new players establish communication with their coaches and returning players re-establish those lines.

“Working together always precedes winning together,” Marrone said. “If you’re communicating, you’re building trust. The minute you’re not communicating, you’re hurting the team. .. We’re not a team right now. We shouldn’t be a team right now. We have new players, we have some new things we want to do and that takes time to do and that’s what we’re doing right now.”

On the communications front, not every player is present for conditioning and meetings this week, but Marrone said, “I’ve communicated with all of the players. We know exactly what everybody is doing.”

Campbell likes uniforms

The Jaguars’ new uniforms will be unveiled on Thursday, but defensive end Calais Campbell has gotten a look.

“I have seen the uniforms and I like them,” Campbell said. “Very classic look. Smooth. I’m looking forward to putting them on and doing some damage in them.”

Bortles on contract

Quarterback Blake Bortles signed his new contract on Feb. 24, but said Tuesday he did not spend an inordinate amount of time reveling in the accomplishment.

“It was cool for me [to know] that I was coming back here and playing a couple more years and having a little bit more security,” he said. “That’s what I was excited for — to come back, play here and be with the guys in this locker room.”

Marrone on Kessler

New backup quarterback Cody Kessler was at the facility a few weeks after he was acquired in a trade with Cleveland.

“I watched him on tape and I liked him,” Marrone said. “I thought he could make the throws and you could see him throwing the hot [routes] and doing a lot of the things that are built into our system. I thought he was a good get for us. I’m excited to work with him and see him out there.”

Etc.

Campbell said will not be held back during the offseason program. “I’m healthy,” he said. “You always have things that come up and that’s part of the business that we signed up for. I’m not limited or anything.” … A source said the Jaguars are “unlikely” to pursue free agent receiver Dez Bryant, released by Dallas last week. Per Bovada, Baltimore (3-1), Houston (4-1) and Green Bay/New Orleans/Washington (all 5-1) are the favorites to sign Bryant.
