Jacksonville Jaguars under minimum spend requirement by $28 million -
The Oakland Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars are the only two NFL teams below the 89 percent cash spending required by next year, and they are significantly under the minimum, the players' union said Thursday. NFL Players Association Executive Director DeMaurice Smith singled out the Oakland Raiders as being $41 million below the spending floor they must reach by March 2017. The Jacksonville Jaguars are $28 million short of the collectively bargained requirements, Smith added.

Gus Bradley soundboard -

If the Jaguars are so concerned with belonging in the NFL, they need to focus on winning instead of making everything look nice. Improving your facilities isn’t a bad thing, but what the Jaguars really need to do is improve the quality of the play on that field rather than merely working on the stadium.
