DEVELOPING: Busy day in Jacksonville: Jaguars reportedly sold

((ht: espn))


On the heels of the Jacksonville Jaguars firing their head coach Jack Del Rio comes this. The Jaguars are reportedly going to be sold.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter report that employees were notified this morning the team will be operating under new ownership. Supposedly, the new owner, who is buying the team from Wayne Weaver, will keep the team in Jacksonville.

**UPDATE**--Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union reports that Shahid Khan, who was in line to buy the St. Louis Rams a couple of years ago is the buyer. There were questions then as to whether Khan had the finances to pull of that deal. It will be interesting to see what happens this time.

We are guessing more details will come out on this story when the team holds a press conference at Noon on Tuesday.
