Maligned Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith took to Instagram live on Monday to share with the world his feelings on his current situation.
What situtation am I talking about?
Telvin Smith hasn't communicated with the Jaguars or been present at the voluntary offseason program, despite repeated attempts by the coaching staff to reach the former Pro Bowler. He's not required to communicate with his team or be in attendance at this point in the offseason. But it seems to me that a team leader would want to, at the very least, be in communication with his team.
There have been rumors and talk of Telvin Smith potentially being traded or even released before the 2019 season, and apparently, Smith caught wind of them.
On Instagram live Monday night Smith had quite a bit to say.
"I never left Duval," said Smith. "I'm never leaving Duval. It's Duval 'til we die. You understand me? Y'all seen trade rumors and stuff. Y'all seen me go anywhere? Exactly. Y'all seen the rumors go somewhere, but yall ain't seen me go nowhere, because I ain't goin nowhere. You understand me? I told y'all this; I'm with this city."
Earlier in his Instagram live session, Smith also said: "this week, y'all gonna know what's going on."
Smith, quite plainly, wants people to know that he doesn't want to go anywhere. Then why not communicate with your bosses, Telvin?
It's been an entirely odd sequence of events with Telvin Smith and the Jaguars this offseason, and hopefully, a resolution will come sooner rather than later.
