Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Cecil Shorts III is working on his fitness levels ahead of the start of the team's training camp.

Cecil Shorts III has revealed that he has been working on his fitness ahead of the start of the NFL's pre-season.

The wide receiver recently organised a workout for several teammates during the players' break between off-season minicamp and the start of training camp.

The 25-year-old told the team's website: "My goal is to be the best in-shape guy in camp each year. I think I've done that last year, and I'm trying to do that again this year. I think this is going to be a fast-paced offense, and we need to be in shape.

"We got some really good work in and our timing is getting a whole lot better. [The quarterbacks] trust me, I trust them. We're looking good. We look like something that could be special down the line.

"I normally have nobody to throw with. It would be like a college guy or my uncle would throw, or my little brother would throw to me or something. It's exciting to see, and it's good to grind with people that you're going to grind with all year."

Shorts recorded 979 receiving yards and scored seven touchdowns for the Jaguars in 2012.
