Posted Aug 1, 2014

Take a look back at the top tweets and Instagram posts from fans, players and the media during a busy week in Jacksonville.


This was a big week for the Jacksonville Jaguars. The team opened 2014 Training Camp and unveiled its new video boards. So for this week, the format in The Social Snapshot will be a bit different. Instead of having a special section this week, the digital media team decided to break things up by topic. Below is what the fans, players and media were saying about the Khanstruction and Training Camp.
