Speaking to Sports Illustrated after finally joining the Jaguars, Trevor Lawrence was all smiles. When questioned about his future, he replied, “Success is a hard word obviously. Winning and losing that’s kind of what you get measured by in football and sports in general.

“So obviously, that’s one thing. But I think just successful is more so how I live my life, type of husband and dad I am one day, that’s a little bit outside of the game.

“But I just think that that’s a successful life for me. But as far as the game goes, obviously, dream of winning the Super Bowl, that’s going to be probably my biggest goal my whole career, and then hopefully can do that a few times.

“So you just don’t know how things are gonna work out. So obviously going to a new city, you got to figure all that out. But just excited to give all I have to a new city and start my family wherever,” Lawrence said in the interview.

The AFC South franchise faces a crucial season ahead under coach Meyer. Apart from Lawrence, they’ve made some impressive free-agent signings over the last couple of months. It’s a great time to be a Jaguars fan right now, nowhere to go but up!
