Jaguars receiver Marvin Jones met with the media Wednesday, his first availability since a report over the weekend about a heated argument he had with Urban Meyer. Jones downplayed what transpired between the 10-year veteran and his head coach.

Jones said it happened 2 1/2 weeks ago. He characterized it more as a conversation and denied leaving the team facility in anger afterward.

“I will just say this: There was something that was brought to my attention that I didn’t like too well,” Jones said, via video from John Shipley of Jaguar Report. “I approached him about it, and we talked, and we handled it like grown men. That’s all I have to say about that.”

Jones reportedly wasn’t happy with public and private criticism of the receiver group. Jones didn’t provide details about exactly what prompted him to seek out Meyer to express his feelings.

“We have a lot of conversations, me and (Meyer), about this team,” Jones said, via Ashlyn Sullivan of the team website. “I’m the old head. I’m the voice of the locker room.”

  1. So the two people involved both deny the report but no one will go back to Pelissero and question the veracity of the report and no one will apologize to Meyer or the Jags for getting it wrong.

  2. For the record Urban’s opinon of our receivers is true they are terrible. Should he say that publically? I don’t know but if they ran bette routes he wouldn’t have to decide.

  3. Thank you Marvin Jones for calling this report just what I always knew what it was, total BS!

  4. Please Fire this guy tonight Mr. Khan.The fans deserve better, 2017 seems like 100 years ago they almost made the Super Bowl

  5. If the guy wants a better receiver room, then he can stop drafting rbs to play the position.

  6. If you read the quote carefully, Jones didn’t deny a single thing that was reported — there is no vindication here.

  7. Well the majority seems to have won on this but let’s be honest will Khan hire the right replacement so far the proof is in the pudding, it may get worst before it gets better he needs to talk to Kraft , Rooney’s or Hunts and find what they do to find the right fits for coaches and GMs for the players they have , or it’s not going to get any better.

    Agreed. I bet Marvin wishes he had waited 24 hours to give that interview. He probably wouldn’t give a nondenial denial today.
