14. Big Ambitions
The Jaguars know that Jacksonville isn’t a great market. NBC continues to link the Jags with a move to London, making them the first overseas NFL franchise. They will play the Miami Dolphins in London’s Tottenham Hotspurs Stadium on October 17. Some analysts believe that this is a test run for a future move because of the franchise’s close links to the city.
Jags owner Shahid Khan is also the owner of Fulham FC, an English soccer club based in the U.K. capital. If the Jaguars leave Jacksonville they will instantly become the most talked-about franchise in the NFL. Meyer must prove himself before any potential move because overseas fans will want to get behind a proven winner. That’s a lot of pressure.
