This is a fun job because you never know what each morning will bring.
This morning brought seismic changes in Jacksonville that will shape the next decade of the Jaguars franchise.
If you missed any of it, here’s a quick recap:
One reason Del Rio was fired: He didn’t work as hard after he got a big contract.
Tebowmania may not have helped Del Rio either.
The Jaguars have been sold to Shahid Khan, who reportedly plans to keep the franchise in Jacksonville.
One of Wayne Weaver’s last acts as owner: He extended G.M. Gene Smith’s contract for three years.
Smith’s extension is good news for Blaine Gabbert, who could still get lost in the shuffle with a new coach coming to town.
We’ll get back to the rest of the league shortly. At least after we watch Weaver’s press conference.
UPDATE: Weaver promised the team won’t leave Jacksonville.
