Since day one of billionaire Shad Khan becoming the Jaguars owner, he’s stressed the will to make the Jaguars a Super Bowl contender and a world-class organization. He searched far and wide for a general manager to take care of business on the field and as for making the Jaguars a world-class organization, Khan has kept his word in the aspect. We all know the investments that he’s had his part in ranging from funding the team with a $3 million dollar locker room,  and he’s currently in phase two (roughly a $5.9 million investment) in building new offices for the coaching staff along with new weight, training, x-ray rooms (all to EverBank Field) just to name a few. But nothing beats the next deal he worked out with the city in his quest to make the Jaguars a world class organization.
