For years, disappointment surrounded the Jacksonville Jaguars organization. But after signing quality free agents and having what many experts suggested was among the better drafts in the league, fans are clamoring to see them.

Now a week since the franchise broke attendance records during rookie minicamp, the Jaguars have decided to open up one OTA session on June 5, so fans can see their team preparing for the upcoming season, according to Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union. The Jaguars slate of 10 OTAs begins on Tuesday with the two-hour open practice lasting from 11:25 a.m.-1:25 p.m.

Jacksonville had 6,214 fans attend its rookie camp this past weekend, which was nearly 2,000 more than the organization had ever experienced.

Of course, June 5 and subsequent preseason games might be the only time Jaguars fans get to see rookie quarterback Blake Bortles in live action considering the team has announced its desire for the former University of Central Florida talent to spend his initial NFL season on the sideline.

Regardless, it's clear there's excitement back in Jacksonville.
