The Jacksonville Jaguars have been hinting at the need for a practice bubble for quite a while and according to a report by the Jacksonville Business Journal, it's potentially in the works. The weather is always a factor for the Florida NFL franchises during the summer months and not just because of the heat. Over the past few weeks during OTA practices and minicamp, the Jaguars have had to cut practices short and change locations because of thunderstorms.

The team has practiced in the Touchdown Club inside EverBank Field and even in the Jacksonville Veteran's Memorial Arena, which is the home of Jacksonville's AFL franchise.

"It's really kind of very much up in the air," Jaguars CFO and senior vice president of stadium operations Bill Prescott told the Florida Times-Union. "We're obviously exploring a practice bubble vs. a metal structure, evaluating where it could possibly go in the context of where we are now in terms of the existing practice fields, the south end zone or any other location we could come up with. It's really in the evaluation stages right now to understand what we can do with it."

It's likely if a facility is built the team would prefer to have it close to EverBank Field and their normal outdoor practice facility, so they can change locations if a sudden thunderstorm rolls in as they're want to do in Florida.
