One of the most beloved players in Jacksonville Jaguars history thinks the Jacksonville Jaguars may not be long for Jacksonville.
Via First Coast News, former Jaguars quarterback Mark Brunell recently said he won’t be surprised if the team moves to London.
“We have an owner in Shad Khan that bought the soccer team over there and all indications are that we’re headed that way. It’s not good for Jacksonville,” Brunell told ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike in the Morning. “You don’t hear a lot of that talk in Jacksonville right now, but everywhere else . . . someone mentioned the other day that it’s the Jacksonville Jaguars of London.”
We still think it’s unlikely any team will move on a full-time basis to London. After playing back-to-back road games on the West Coast earlier this year, the Jags reportedly cooled on the idea of playing two games in one season in London. Playing eight in England and eight in the United States per year would be a far greater challenge.
That’s why we still think the ultimate outcome will entail, as Peter King reported on Sunday night, eight games per year in London involving different teams.
