“I have no interest [in Los Angeles],” Weaver told Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union Tuesday as he repeated a statement he made in the past.
A Los Angeles official listed Jacksonville last week as one of five teams it has talked to, but Weaver noted that Sports Business Daily didn’t even mention Jacksonville when it reported on teams interested in Los Angeles on Monday.
“That’s the real story,” Weaver said.
Weaver added, “I have been consistent in saying I am committed to Jacksonville and have no interest [in moving],” he said.
“We have to work hard and be more creative because we’re in a small market in a difficult economy with high unemployment rates and a housing crisis that is more difficult than in other cities,” Weaver said.
