Waffle House might not be the first spot that comes to mind when you’re looking for a place to celebrate a special occasion but it was Trevor Lawrence’s choice following the Jacksonville Jaguars’ playoff win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Super Wild Card Weekend. Since then, WH has become a trendy location for NFL players to have dinner, and safety Rayshawn Jenkins is the latest to pay a visit.
Rita Morgan made the headlines when a picture of her and Lawrence hit social media and just recently, another picture of her popped up. This time though, she was next to Jenkins, who might have heard great things about Mrs. Morgan and the service other Jaguars got when they had dinner and wanted to see for himself.
Patrick Mahomes, the Super Bowl MVP, caught wind of Lawrence’s visit, calling it a baller move, and said that he would give it a look. Similarly, Jaguars wide receiver Zay Jones, who wasn’t among the players that celebrated with the quarterback, jokingly said that he wish he would’ve been invited. Here’s the picture of Morgan with Jenkz. Shoutout to Patrick Morgan, Rita’s husband, for getting in touch with Black & Teal and sharing the pic.
The Jaguars are having a quiet offseason for the second year in a row
It’s great to see Jenkins enjoy his free time and make headlines for the right reasons. You have probably heard that all publicity is good for you but the Jaguars are surely glad they’re currently away from the stoplight and are having a quiet offseason for the first time in a while.
Last year, the Jags were still dealing with the aftermath of the Urban Meyer fiasco and it was uncertain what kind of shape they were in. As a matter of fact, expectations weren’t particularly high, with several analysts projecting them to win five or six games.
However, Doug Pederson led them to their first playoff trip and their first AFC South championship since 2017. Moreover, Trevor Lawrence has brought stability at the quarterback position, so Jacksonville can now focus on improving the roster and avoid regressing in 2023.
Jenkins, just like every other Jaguars player, will eventually get back to training and preparing for the 2023 NFL regular season. For the time being, he’s making the most of his off time by having lunch at the Waffle House.
