JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Urban Meyer's NFL venture always had the chance to be a complete debacle.
A longtime college coach making the jump to a league he knew little, if anything, about? A renowned motivator using inspirational tactics on professional players driven mostly by money?

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Urban Meyer didn’t even try to downplay his homecoming.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Joe Burrow didn't play much in three years under Urban Meyer at Ohio State.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Cornerback CJ Henderson is the latest first-round draft pick to get shipped out of Jacksonville.

CINCINNATI (AP) — The Cincinnati Bengals played one of the most consistent and complete games of the Joe Burrow era Sunday against none other than the Pittsburgh Steelers.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — NFL infamy is in sight for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Jaguars have dropped 17 consecutive games, including six in a row by double digits, and have provided little evidence they are nearing a turnaround.
The last time Florida beat Alabama, Tim Tebow was the Gators' quarterback and the team was on its way to a second national title under coach Urban Meyer.
Tebow is now retired and Meyer is coaching in the NFL.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Urban Meyer rarely, if ever, experienced anything like this at Ohio State or Florida.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Trevor Lawrence took the reps coach Urban Meyer said he needed, and now has a taste of success going into the regular season.
Jacksonville's rookie No. 1 overall pick completed 11 of 12 passes for 139 yards and two scores in three possessions against Dallas backups, and the Jaguars beat the Cowboys 34-14 in a preseason finale Sunday.
Minshew Mania is on the move.
The Jacksonville Jaguars traded popular backup quarterback Gardner Minshew to Philadelphia on Saturday for a conditional draft pick in 2022. The Jaguars received a sixth-round pick that would become a fifth-rounder if Minshew plays 50% of snaps in three games.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Taven Bryan started the month with a black eye. He might end it with a bruised ego.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars seemingly have the NFL market cornered on first-round flops.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville’s receivers might as well have been wearing red jerseys on the first day of training camp.
They were as untouchable as rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence.

The Jacksonville Jaguars signed Tebow last week, giving the former Florida star and 2007 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback an opportunity to revive his pro career as a tight end catching passes from their rookie No.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Tim Tebow wasn’t the first — and surely won’t be the last — college quarterback to switch positions in the NFL. The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner is, however, the first to do it more than a decade after making his professional debut.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Trevor Lawrence opened Jacksonville’s rookie minicamp on a pitch count. Coaches and teammates were essentially given an even stricter rule regarding the No. 1 pick and franchise quarterback: Don’t touch him.
