Jaguars Quiet Regarding Reports Shad Khan Is Looking To Buy EPL's Fulham FC

HAVING MORE OF A PRESENCE IN LONDON: YAHOO SPORTS’ Frank Schwab wrote Khan “buying a well-established and popular Premier League soccer club in London doesn't seem to be a random decision by a smart businessman.” Having a presence in the London soccer scene “wouldn't be a bad thing for Khan if he plans to heavily promote the Jaguars there.” The NFL “seems set on becoming more international,” and the Jaguars “appear to be as good of a candidate as any to be that international team.” Khan's interest in buying a London soccer team “probably won't quell those concerns in Jacksonville” (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 7/10).
