The Jaguars have added one more to their revamped front office.

MacCracken was the Browns’ salary cap manager from their first season back int he league in 1999 through the 2009 season. He then spent 2010-2017 as Kansas City’s director of football administration.

He most recently worked in the Alliance of American Football as the Arizona Hotshots personnel director and in the XFL as the New York Guardians’ director of player personnel.

As Pelissero noted in his report, the Jaguars fired John Idzik in January. While his title was special assistant to the General Manager, he was a salary cap consultant for the club.

  1. Trip MacCracken? Sounds like the lead in a dime store adventure novel. Or a character played by Nick Offerman.

  2. Nice to see Big Ernie McCracken’s brother get his shot. It’s gotta be tough living in that shadow. All time great bowler and mentor to the 1979 Iowa state amateur champion, father figure to countless young boys who’s coincidentally have single moms, hair that blows in the wind…I could go on and on but that would be taking away from Trip’s spotlight

  3. After what happened with their last hire the Jaguars are now giving fake names to all new hires to avoid any public outcry.
