This just in: Sometimes it rains in Jacksonville.
The Jaguars may soon be a little more prepared for it.
Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union reports that the Jags are in the planning stages of building an indoor practice facility.
It won’t be ready until next year at the soonest, but it would have come in handy in recent weeks, as the Jags had to hold some workouts in their stadium’s club level, amid the concession stands. They had to use nearby Veteran’s Memorial Arena for one minicamp practice as well.
Jaguars CFO Bill Prescott said they began discussing such a facility in 2005, but it never got past the conversation stage. That’s likely disappointing to former coach Jack Del Rio, who ESPN.com’s Paul Kuharsky noted was known for lobbying for such a structure.
