Jacksonville Jaguars veteran wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. will serve as the team’s sixth team captain in Week 3 for a road game against the Los Angeles Chargers, coach Doug Pederson announced Friday.
The Jaguars have five permanent captains — Trevor Lawrence, Brandon Scherff, Josh Allen, Foye Oluokun, and Logan Cooke — with a sixth decided by Pederson on a weekly basis.
Jones, 32, is the oldest player on the Jaguars roster and signed with the team in 2021 on a two-year deal. Last season, he was the Jaguars’ leading receiver with 73 receptions for 832 yards with four touchdowns. Through two games this year, he has seven receptions for 71 yards.
The California native went to high school in Rancho Cucamonga, a suburb about 60 miles east of SoFi Stadium where the Jaguars will play the Chargers on Sunday. After high school, Jones played college football for the California Golden Bears.
In four career games against the Chargers while with the Cincinnati Bengals and Detroit Lions, Jones is 4-0 with 11 receptions, 123 receiving yards, and one touchdown.
