63 days until kickoff: Brad Meester is an absolute boss

New, comments
Atlanta Falcons v Jacksonville Jaguars

With just 63 days until kickoff, let’s talk about the greatest center the Jacksonville Jaguars have ever known — Brad Meester!

An absolute cornerstone on the offensive line

Meester was with the Jaguars since he was drafted by the franchise in the secon round of the 2000 NFL Draft and was the last remaining player from the Tom Coughlin era. Meester started 209 games in his career for the Jaguars, missing just 15 games total in his 14-year career.

Whew.

Meester was a cornerstone on the Jaguars offensive line since he took over the center position in 2003, playing guard his first few seasons. He set the franchise record for consecutive games played with 92 in a row and has played for ever single head coach in the current franchise's history.

And lest we forget, Gus Bradley did something right during his tenure — he allowed Meester to get a reception in his final home game. (That’s going for six if the offensive line knows how to dig in the ground, dammit!)
