Jacksonville Jaguars players considered protest alongside Colin Kaepernick -
A group of Jacksonville Jaguars players did consider participating in a protest during the national anthem in support of San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick, at least until Kaepernick wore socks with pictures of pigs dressed as police officers. Cornerback Prince Amukamara, speaking at a town-hall panel discussion Tuesday night featuring several players and civic leaders, said a group of 10-12 players talked to coach Gus Bradley about their decision to protest, but they couldn’t get organized and then Amukamara decided to drop out because of Kaepernick’s socks.

Tony Boselli named a semifinalist for 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame -
The Pro Football Hall of Fame has announced former Jacksonville Jaguars great Tony Boselli as one of the 26 semifinalists for the second year in a row. And that’s good news for his chances of being enshrined in Canton, Ohio.

Jacksonville Jaguars defense is about to be historically bad -
The Jacksonville Jaguars are on the verge of some dubious history -- unless they are able to do something they haven’t done in nearly seven weeks. The Jaguars (2-7) have gone five games without forcing a turnover, which is tied with five other teams for the longest streak in the NFL since the 1970 merger. If they don’t force one against Detroit (5-4) on Sunday at Ford Field they’ll sit atop that disappointing list by themselves.
