Khan won't attend Jags' Monday night game
Shahid Khan was originally supposed to attend Monday night's game where the Jacksonville Jaguars host the San Diego Chargers.
It was at that point the new owner was to meet the media see his new purchase play first hand on Monday Night Football. However, Khan will be keeping a much lower profile until the sale goes through.
"I sincerely appreciate Wayne Weaver’s invitation to me and my family to join him for Monday night’s game against San Diego. I was ready for some football. However, the best thing that evening is for me to be in New York to focus on the NFL Finance Committee’s meeting scheduled on Tuesday," Khan said in a statement. "And, above all, I feel that Monday night should be about three important people in the Jaguars family – Mel Tucker and, of course, Wayne and Delores Weaver. Mel and Wayne and Delores each fully deserve our love, attention and enthusiastic support on Monday night. This moment is for them. The Jacksonville community has been simply terrific since our announcement on Tuesday, and my entire family is extremely appreciative. I am aware of the supportive letters, calls, emails, Tweets and even T-shirts, and your kindness is truly appreciated. It’s exactly what Wayne promised us when we expressed our commitment to Jacksonville and the Jaguars, and I can’t wait to finally meet everyone in person later this month. In the meantime … Go Jaguars!"
Khan also is refraining from doing any interviews for now as well, the statement said.
