The St. Louis Rams had previously agreed to give up a home game for the next three seasons and instead “host” a game in London. But the Rams announced last week that they would no longer play in London in 2013 and 2014. (St. Louis will still play the New England Patriots in London on October 28). ProFootballTalk‘s Michael David Smith wrote that the Rams “met with local resistance” over the plan to play games overseas.
The Rams’ exit left the spot open for the Jaguars and owner Shad Khan, who bought the team last November. The Jaguars had previously expressed interest in playing in London, seeing the games as an opportunity to spread the team’s brand and market the city of Jacksonville.
