Jaguars announce approval of massive scoreboards

If the Jaguars are moving to London, they'll be ditching the world's largest outdoor scoreboards in the process.

Four months ago, the Jaguars unveiled concept pictures of a proposed scoreboard. Today, the Jaguars, in conjunction with the City of Jacksonville, announced the Jaguars would be adding two such video boards as part of a $63 million project on Everbank Field.

The City of Jacksonville will cover $43 million while the team will be responsible for the remaining $20 million. The team will also be responsible for over-budget work.

Today we're making a statement to the NFL, the nation and the world that Jacksonville is world-class," owner Shahid Khan said.

Renovations to the stadium, including the construction of the giant boards, will begin following the 2013 season.
