Myles Jack says is the the Jaguars MIKE linebacker

As the Jacksonville Jaguars prepare for life on the football field without linebacker Telvin Smith, Myles Jack told the media on Tuesday night that when he and his teammates take the field for OTAs and training camp in the coming weeks, he will be the starting middle linebacker.

There has been some talk that Jack, who has played both inside and outside on the second line of the Jaguars defense, would be moved back outside because the team signed free agent Jake Ryan from Green Bay. Jack put that talk to rest (at least for the moment) by proclaiming himself as the man in the middle for Jacksonville.
