FILM ROOM: How does new Jaguars cornerback Davon House fit the defensive scheme -

Jaguars Draft Day hat features wrong city skyline - Washington Post
Well, this is embarrassing. The baseball cap that will be donned by whichever players are taken by the Jacksonville Jaguars when the NFL draft kicks off April 30 appears to have a skyline on it other than the one belonging to, um, Jacksonville.

New Era, which makes the caps that feature each NFL city’s skyline, says it is "actively" trying to correct the error.

Good week of news for the Jaguars -
The theme resonated all week, and the theme was good. Actually, the 2015 NFL Annual Meeting was darned, darned good for the Jaguars and Jaguars fans. Notably so. It told good things about the present; it foretold good things for the future. And if the week didn’t represent a seismic change, necessarily, it certainly could be seen as another step in what appears to be a new direction. And a fairly remarkable direction at that.
