Randy Moss makes interesting comment regarding his concern that Urban Meyer may not work in Jacksonville
There has been no shortage of opinions around Urban Meyer’s hiring in Jacksonville, but former NFL star Randy Moss may have the most unique.
Speaking on ESPN on Sunday morning, Moss referred to the crime and violence in Duval County as a reason to be hesitant about Meyer’s expectation for success. Earlier in the segment, Tedy Bruschi raised the issue that Meyer was out of coaching last season when teams around football faced the multi-faceted challenges of dealing with COVID-19 protocols and social justice issues. Bruschi’s point was that Meyer has a learning curve to get up to speed about how those issues affect the locker room and organization.
Moss zeroed in on the Jacksonville area.
“I’m really anxious to see, with them being able to draft a guy like Trevor Lawrence, how will he fare coming into the league with Urban Meyer, he’s been off for some time,” Moss said. “Social justice, being out in the community, Jacksonville Jaguars, in the state of Florida, Duval County is not a good county to be in. I’m talking about the violence, not just the people, I’m talking about the violence and the crime in Duval County. When I look at Urban Meyer coming to this team, he has a lot to be working with and it’s not just the team. The Black Lives Matter, everything that’s going on with the COVID, there’s a lot of concerns going on. I just wish him the best of luck.”
