It is here! 2023 NFL Training Camp has officially arrived. The Jacksonville Jaguars officially report on Tuesday which is outstanding news. Yes, summer is nice and all but it is time for football. 

The real practice will begin on Wednesday but the boys are back in town as of Tuesday. After a very fun off-season, it is time for the Jaguars to show everyone that they are the real deal.

This team started last season 2-6. Obviously, for a team that made the number one pick two years in a row, there was some worry there. Then, things changed as they won a majority of their games from that point on. 

They ended up coming all the way back and winning the AFC South Division. It was a great way to end what was by then a very special season for the franchise. After what felt like another laughing stock year in the beginning, they found a way to rebound. 

The Jacksonville Jaguars are a team that defied all odds in 2022.

Then, what came in the playoffs was just magical. They went down 27-0 to the Los Angeles Chargers at home. That made making the playoffs feel a tad less special. However, it’s not over until it’s over. 

One of the greatest comebacks in the history of the NFL playoffs allowed the Jaguars to pull out the win over the Chargers. It was amazing for the young players on the team as they gained some incredible experience. 

A week later, the Jaguars dropped their second-round matchup with the three Kansas City Chiefs who went on to win the Super Bowl. A one-score loss to a team like that definitely left Jaguars fans wanting more. 

From that moment forward, everyone has just been waiting for this day. The day that the Jaguars return to camp. There is unfinished business to take care of for this team. 

That is not to say that they need to win the Super Bowl this year or it is a bust of a season. It is to say that they need to take another step. Being a great team for the second year in a row would be a great start because that never happens for this franchise. 

Hopefully, this training camp that is about to begin helps them lay the foundation for a great and healthy season for all. This is a very exciting that and everyone should be excited.
