Distancing themselves from the franchise-worst 2-14 record last year, the Jaguars are entering a new era with a new general manager in David Caldwell, new head coach in Gus Bradley and even new uniforms.
Most importantly, Jacksonville will have an almost completely revamped roster.
“People think beaches, not business,” said U.K. Consul General Kevin McGurgan, although Jacksonville is making inroads into the British mind, with the Scottish soccer teams coming here and the Jacksonville Jaguars planning a game in London.

Brown, who played quarterback his final two years at Liberty University, joined the Jaguars last offseason after the 2012 NFL Draft not as a draft selection and not even as an undrafted free agent, but as a tryout player in rookie minicamp. It’s hard to start with fewer advantages than that, but Brown signed to the 90-man roster shortly after and played well enough in training camp and preseason to spend 15 weeks on the team’s practice squad.
