Trevor Lawrence landing in Jacksonville could impact NFL and London to tune of hundreds of millions of dollars

With little fanfare across the NFL — but unmistakable joy inside the domestic fan base of the Jacksonville Jaguars — the contract tying London to its most familiar American football franchise ended in October.For all intents and purposes, the Jaguars’ obligation to London expired.Unless you are somewhere inside the orbit of the Jacksonville franchise or spend your time studying the NFL’s unrelenting drumbeat of business operations, you probably didn’t notice. But there’s a reason that London expiration is going to be of some serious importance to the NFL in 2021. Chief among them are three significant points of business involving the league and the Jaguars in the coming months. And believe it or not, the team securing the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft — and presumably the future of Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence in a Jaguars uniform — could factor into decisions that shift hundreds of millions of dollars in NFL decisions, if not billions.We’ll get to that in a moment. First, the serious business at hand for the NFL and the Jaguars.
