Even though there was no football the past week, it was still an exciting one for the players, fans and media. Fans received their tickets for the Summer Mega Event and the 2014 season. Players spent time in the community and weighed in on news around the sports world. Additionally, with Jaguars Owner Shad Khan's birthday on July 18, the team's digital media department asked fans to tweet using #HappyBdayMrKhan.
