Former Vikings running back Toby Gerhart jumped at the chance to replace Maurice Jones-Drew in the Jaguars backfield.  Gerhart told The Florida Times-Union that he can be “dominant” for the Jaguars at running back.

“I had the skill set to be a starter from the onset, but I was playing behind one of the best in the game,” Gerhart recently said of Adrian Peterson, per The Florida Times-Union. “I’ve gotten comfortable with the speed of the game, but don’t have the wear and tear on my body of someone carrying it 250 times a year.

“I think I’m in a unique situation. Even though it’s my fifth year in the league, I can come in and be a dominant guy. I’m ready for my shot now.”

Gerhart will begin his stint in Jacksonville relatively fresh after only having carried the ball just 276 time over his first four seasons.
