The Jaguars voted for team captains on Monday and second year quarterback Blaine Gabbert was one of two players to earn the honor. Nearly a year ago today, it struck many as odd that quarterback David Garrard was not named a team captain as he had been in years past, but a quarterback will again wear the badge in 2012 for the Jaguars.
However, one player that did not earn the honor for the 2012 team was running back Maurice Jones-Drew after a lengthy holdout that finally came to a conclusion on Sunday. Instead the second captain is center Brad Meester, the longest tenured Jaguars player, entering season 13 with the team.
