Keelan Cole Trolls Falcons For No Apparent Reason
The Jacksonville Jaguars have not had a season to remember. The team owns a lowly record of 1-8 and is dealing with a laundry list of injuries to key players. Wide receiver Keelan Cole has avoided the injury bug, though, and he's been able to have some decent performances.
When asked about his contract situation after this season, Cole found a way to troll the Atlanta Falcons.
It's funny to think that a team's mascot could play even a small role in a player's free-agent decision. There's also no denying that Jacksonville has a huge weather advantage over most NFL cities.
Cole originally caught on with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent during the 2017 season. He signed a one-year contact extension to remain with the team prior to this year.
While the fourth-year receiver's production has been inconsistent on a week-to-week basis, he has already set a career high in touchdowns (4) through the first 9 games this season. Cole's standout performance came in Week 6 against the Detroit Lions when he caught 6 passes for 143 yards.
After two straight weeks of only catching 1 pass, Cole rebounded in Week 10 against the Packers with 5 receptions, 47 yards, and 1 touchdown. Hopefully, the receiver can channel that good momentum and use it when he faces a stout Pittsburgh Steelers defense in Week 11.
