The Jaguars new 16,626 square foot video screen could be used to constantly show NFL RedZone during game days (Credit: @JagsGameDay) In February, the Jacksonville Jaguars unveiled a concept for a new video board that would end up being the largest in the NFL. So, what will the Jaguars show on the 16,626 square foot screen? Jaguars president Mark Lamping tells Don Muret of SportsBusiness Journal that a portion of the screen could be dedicated to constantly showing NFL’s RedZone channel. “We know this would be welcomed by the large portion of our fans who are transplants to Jacksonville, as well as all fantasy football enthusiasts,” Lamping said. Muret added that some data on the screen such as down and distance will remain on the screen at all time. “Because the boards are so big we don’t need mirror images at each end because they are in view of most fans,” Lamping said. “Some content will remain the same such as time of game, down and distance and replays.” The video screens are to be installed at the end of each end zone starting in 2014. If the screens at EverBank Field are constantly showing NFL RedZone, the Jaguars would become the first team to dedicate a portion of their stadium to the fan’s fantasy football experience. It will be interesting to see if this garners more attention for the Jaguars or distracts fans from watching the game.
