“We talked to them about the men and women that have given their lives for their country and the freedoms that we have now. We also talked about Jacksonville and the area with such a big military community. I want to make sure that when those days come that I am responsible. I would like to make sure everyone understands what it is and what we are doing.”

The Jaguars will return to the practice field for their second week of practice on Tuesday morning.
