General Manager David Caldwell addressed this Thursday, saying the Jaguars are close to signing the rest of their eight draft selections. There is no rush on this issue.

The Jackonsivlle Jaguars’ caravan made a stop at the Valdosta Mall Saturday for their second visit in as many years. A crowd gathered in the center of the mall in anticipation of the team’s arrival. The team’s mascot, Jaxson de Ville, rolled in to the sound of applause on a segway, followed by four members of Jacksonville’s ROAR cheerleaders. Tony Boselli, former Jaguar offensive lineman, got the festivities going when he declared Valdosta as “Jaguar Country.”
