The NFL is committed to playing games in London.
But when St. Louis pulled out of “hosting” responsibilities recently, the league needed someone to send overseas.
Apparently, the Jaguars are that team.
Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union reports that the Jags have called a press conference for tomorrow, where owner Shad Khan and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will announce that the team will “play multiple games” in London.
The Jags have made no secret of wanting in on overseas trips, seeing them as a de facto advertisement for their city.
At the same time, they’ve been careful to tell their ticket-buying fans they have no intention of moving. That’s a fine line to walk, when they’ve been so eager about reducing the inventory.
