The Jaguars have recorded losing seasons in their past three campaigns, but the 25-year-old believes that the club are clicking into gear under second-year head coach Gus Bradley.
Shorts told the club's official website: "Never. Never. It's exciting. I was thinking the same thing, but to hear other guys say it, that we're ahead of last year... we're not where we want to be yet, but I think we are on the right track."
The Jaguars finished with a 4-12 record in Bradley's first season at the club.
