Telvin Smith’s Jaguars teammates unsurprisingly support him

The Jacksonville Jaguars fanbase was shocked a week ago to learn that starting linebacker and team captain Telvin Smith had announced he will sit out the 2019 season and was vague about his reasons. There’s obviously something going on serious enough that Smith felt it was walking away from millions of dollars in 2019 to take care.

Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone indicated he hasn’t been able to speak with Smith, however he did offer his support for whatever was going on and that sometimes football isn’t the most important thing.
