They expect an announcement from Jaguars owner Shad Khan later this year.

This will be billed as a home game for the Jaguars, so the Packers will not be losing a home game at their famous Lambeau Field.

The Florida Times-Union also expects the Jaguars to announce a second four-year deal later this year, meaning they'll play at least one home game each season between 2017 and 2020.

Once the game is officially announced by the NFL, the Packers will become the 21st NFL team to play in London since the NFL International Series began in the 2007 season.

This will also be completed one of the dreams of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The 31-year-old revealed to CBS Sports that playing an NFL game in London is on his bucket list.

These reports come after the NFL released other news involving their partnership with London last week.

NFL and Tottenham Hotspur announced that they have reached agreement for a 10-year partnership at the Premier League team’s new stadium in London.

A minimum of two games per year will be played during the partnership at the stadium, opening in the summer of 2018.

The NFL will have its own playing surface at the stadium, allowing greater flexibility of game scheduling.

Three games will be played at Wembley later this year, New York Jets vs. Miami Dolphins on October 4, Buffalo Bills vs. Jacksonville Jaguars on October 25, and Detroit Lions vs. Kansas City Chiefs on November 1.
