Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan speaks out against Donald Trump’s immigration ban on predominately Muslim countries -
N.F.L. Commissioner Roger Goodell declined to take a public stance last week on President Trump’s executive order to temporarily ban visits by citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries, even as leaders in the N.B.A. have spoken out against the order. But Shahid Khan, the owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars, made clear Saturday that he was opposed to the ban and said he was heartened on Friday when a federal judge in Seattle temporarily blocked the president’s immigration order.

Tony Boselli not voted into 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame -
After gaining some momentum leading up to the induction week, former Jacksonville Jaguars offensive tackle Tony Boselli failed to earn the votes needed to get into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. This was Boselli’s 11th year of eligibility. This year was the first time that Boselli made it to the finalist round, competing against 14 other premier players such as Terrell Davis, Kurt Warner, and Brian Dawkins.

Shad Khan: “We do have the talent” -
Shad Khan sees significant progress. While that hasn’t shown up in the on-field record, the Jaguars’ owner said it did show up in a big way during the recent search for a head coach and front-office leadership. Khan, entering his sixth full year as Jaguars owner, early last month hired Doug Marrone as head coach and Tom Coughlin as executive vice president of football operations. The hirings capped a search process in which Khan said he learned that the Jaguars are ahead of where they were four years ago.
