The Jacksonville Jaguars’ quarterback competition is continuing to heat up with first-year head coach Urban Meyer gushing over the underdog just days before the preseason kicks off on Saturday against the Cleveland Browns

Meyer told reporters this week that the competition between Gardner Minshew and the former No.1 overall draft pick, Trevor Lawrence, is still ongoing. Despite not elaborating, Meyer did shed some light on his relationship with one of his signal-callers. 

“I didn’t know Minshew. I knew his [college] coach very well, Mike Leach,” he said, via ESPN. “I don’t say we got off to a bad start, but I just didn’t see very much of him – but he’s earned my respect. I love that guy.”

“He’s a warrior-competitor. He’s a fighter. I told him that,” Meyer continued. “I’ve just got great respect for Minshew. He brings it every day. Every day.”

Both quarterbacks will get the chance to make their case when the Jaguars take on the Browns in Jacksonville Saturday night.
