Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan is trying to resize Everbank Field so that there would be no need to use the tarps. What ideas could they possibly come up with?

Anyone that has been to a Jacksonville Jaguars game at Everbank Field knows that its pretty embarrassing to see most of the upper levels of the stadium covered by tarps. New Jaguars owner Shahid Khan is attempting to find ways to alter the maximum capacity of the stadium without forcing the Jaguars to use any fabric while preparing the stadium for Jaguars games.

According a post on Pro Football Talk by Mike Florio, the Jaguars are looking for any way they can to alter things at their stadium.

Removing the tarps would result in 80,000 seats, making Everbank Field one of the largest facilities in the league. And so (Jaguars President Mark) Lamping apparently is looking for ways to more naturally adjust the NFL arrangement, pointing to the fact that the '90s-era installation of a manual baseball scoreboard at Busch Stadium in St. Louis organically carved 6,000 seats out of the stadium.

If the Jaguars are able to alter things organically, they will not effect the stadium when it comes to hosting other events such as the annual Florida-Georgia college football game.
