Shahid Khan speaks on future of Jaguars in Jacksonville

For the first time since news broke last Tuesday that a deal had been struck to make him the new owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Shahid Khan spoke briefly with local Jacksonville media that made the trip to New York in hopes to speak with Khan at the site of the finance committee meeting.

You can see the full video of the WJXT (Channel 4) coverage of the meeting as well as some of Khan's comments here.

As was expected, the finance committee unanimously approved of the sale and recommended that owners officially approve the deal next week during an owners meeting in Dallas, TX. During the brief moments that Khan spoke to the media he was asked if he had any words to say to fans to perhaps make them feel more comfortable about the team's future in the city of Jacksonville:

"Let me just say, let [fans] wait until next week; they'll be very comfortable next week. Hopefully the vote goes the way we're expecting, I'll be happy to elaborate and they will not be disappointed."
