The Jacksonville Jaguars could feel London calling them for a game there in the near future, perhaps as soon as next year, according to the Florida Times-Union.

“We’ve expressed an interest to the NFL in hopefully being one of those teams,” team president Mark Lamping said. “We think it will increase the profile of the franchise, and Jacksonville can use it to market the city. What’s good for Jacksonville is good for the Jaguars.”

The St. Louis Rams are already on the docket to play games in London in each of the next three seasons, beginning this year. But New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft said the league could start playing two games a year in London. If that comes to fruition, the Jaguars apparently want in, maybe as soon as 2013.
