Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan admitted what the rest of the football world understood to be true: The team will draft at least one quarterback.
"I think there's no mystery that we're going to be taking a quarterback and maybe two," Khan told The Florida Times-Union this week.
The owner didn't say if one of those quarterbacks would be taken with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, but he acknowledged the tandem of veteran Chad Henne and former first-round pick Blaine Gabbert wasn't getting the job done.
"We have to get better at that (position)," Khan said.
If the Jags do in fact draft multiple signal-callers, it would likely signify the end of Gabbert's time with the club. Earlier this year, the third-year pro optimistically said there was "no question" he would be back in 2014. However, it remains more likely that Jacksonville will bring back a veteran, like Henne, and use two of its 10 draft selections on the quarterback position.
"It's one of the maxims in modern football -- the quarterback is key," Khan said. "You will get no debate on that. It's 53 people on a team, but that one person really, really makes a difference."
