Jaguars Players Exchange Patches With Army Rangers

The Jacksonville Jaguars have partnered up with three army ranger battalions based out of Savannah, Ga., in something called "got your back." Head coach Mike Mularkey has become e-mail buddies with these Rangers who are currently serving in Afghanistan.

The idea behind this partnership is that Jaguars players will wear a patch with a ranger's name on the back with the slogan "Got Your Back." These battalion members will get various Jaguars players' names on a patch and sent out to them.

This is a really cool thing that the Jaguars are doing to reach out to those serving the United States in Afghanistan. This sounds like it is going to be a season-long thing that the team and Army are teaming up and doing. There is no word yet what players will be participating in this in the opening week.
