The St. Louis Rams announced on Monday that they have pulled out of their obligation to play in London in the 2013 and 2014 NFL season's so they can "focus on the First Tier Process with the Edward Jones Dome." The league will now need to fill that void and it's likely the Jacksonville Jaguars will volunteer to step up to the plate.

"We've expressed an interest to the NFL in hopefully being one of those teams," Jaguars team president Mark Lamping told the Florida Times-Union about London back in June. "We think it will increase the profile of the franchise, and Jacksonville can use it to market the city. What's good for Jacksonville is good for the Jaguars."

Jaguars owner Shad Khan has put an emphasis on branding the Jaguars internationally and feels like playing a home game or two in London would go really far, often asking "Why not us?" in regards to bearing the NFL's international flag.
