Ex-Jaguars employee reportedly accused of stealing $22 million from team

A former Jacksonville Jaguars employee has been accused of astonishingly brazen financial crimes, according to The Athletic.

Amit Patel, who worked for the Jaguars from 2018 until this year, was charged with one count of wire fraud and one count of illegal monetary transaction this week in federal court for allegedly exploiting the team's virtual credit card program to the tune of $22 million.

Patel is listed in past Jaguars media guides with the title of "Financial Planning and Analysis Coordinator," followed by "Manager, Financial Planning and Analysis." He was reportedly fired in February.
