Mark Brunell thinks the Jaguars are moving to London

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

Mark Brunell said some dumb things on ESPN Radio on Tuesday morning.

Mark Brunell is two months away from having his name added to the Pride of the Jaguars at EverBank Field, but according to the former Jaguars quarterback, the team probably won't be playing there much longer anyway.

On Tuesday morning, Brunell joined Mike & Mike on ESPN Radio to discuss a variety of topics before ending with a talk about the viability of the Jaguars in Jacksonville. When asked about a possible London move, Brunell said that "all indications" are that the team is preparing for a move.

"It wouldn't surprise me, I hate to say it," Brunell said of a London move. "We have an owner in Shad Khan that bought the soccer team over there and all indications are that we're headed that way. It's not good for Jacksonville. You don't hear a lot of that talk in Jacksonville right now, but everywhere else...someone mentioned the other day that it's the Jacksonville Jaguars of London."

The comments are unfortunate coming from a player who is a well-respected alumni of the franchise; however they certainly aren't coming from a place of malice, but rather one of ignorance.

"I want them to stay, that's my home," Brunell said. "I love the franchise, I love the organization, but it wouldn't surprise anybody if in a few years it happened."

Wrong, Mark. It would surprise everybody because "all indications" are that the team has every intention to stay. Indications that include multiple investments Khan has made at EverBank Field and in the City of Jacksonville.

/sigh

Brunell recently joined ESPN as an NFL analyst and is set to be inducted into the Pride of the Jaguars at halftime of the team's Week 15 game against the Buffalo Bills on Dec. 15. He was the starting quarterback for the Jaguars for the franchise's first nine seasons, earning three Pro Bowl nods during his tenure with the team.
