Marvin Jones provides surehanded ‘security blanket’ for Jags

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Marvin Jones is preparing for his final game with the Jacksonville Jaguars. It could come Saturday night against rival Tennessee in a matchup that will decide the division and the No. 4 seed in the AFC playoffs. The 32-year-old receiver is a pending free agent who appears to be the odd man out with former Atlanta standout Calvin Ridley expected to join the Jaguars next month. Jones understands the situation and already is making plans for the future. Before that, he hopes to help the Jaguars reach the postseason for the first time since 2017. Quarterback Trevor Lawrence calls him a “security blanket.”
