Jacksonville Jaguars had more than just players in their locker room | Report claims rats were there too!
The Jacksonville Jaguars had a problem last year in the locker room. It was not about egos, or the head coach, it was a rat infestation.
According to the NFLPA report card, the facility had a problem with critters in their locker room.
“When asked what the number one thing they want changed at their facility, the answer was unanimous – get rid of the rats! Players reported that for 3-4 weeks this season, there was a rat infestation in the locker room and laundry hampers,” the report card stated.
The survey’s findings didn’t come as a surprise to Jaguars President, Mark Lamping.
“If you look at the teams that score the highest, they all had the same thing in common there are new stadiums and new training facilities like I said I wasn’t surprised at all by the score in fact we’ve known about it for quite some time that we have a lot of work to do on this facility in conjunction with the city.” Lamping said.
They also scored near the bottom of the league in Food Service and Nutrition (D, tied for 22nd), weight room (D+, T-29th), training room (D-, T27th), and locker room (D-, T28th).
