According to various reports and tweets from sportswriter Vito Stellino, the Jaguars will be announcing that they are going to be playing "multiple games" from 2013 to 2016 in London.

Not much of a surprise after hearing that the St. Louis Rams had backed out from a prior commitment to play in London over the next two to three years.

Shahid Khan, the Jaguars new owner, made it very clear that if the opportunity were to present itself, the Jaguars would snag a spot in London as soon as possible.

I'd say that is as soon as possible.

Seeking a larger and more spread out fanbase, the Jaguars look to introduce themselves to London fans who probably know little about the franchise.

With more details to emerge soon, the Jaguars will be an exciting team to watch in the next couple of years, so the spectators will be in for some great games.

As a Jaguars fan and follower, I am somewhat excited and somewhat disappointed in the decision. 

I believe it is a great decision for the team and should get more exposure to the least valuable team in the NFL.

As a selfish fan, I hate to see them play a home game at a stadium other than EverBank Stadium. 

Where can I comment?
