Could Urban Meyer join Trevor Lawrence in Jacksonville?
Draft Wire 2hrs ago

The Jacksonville Jaguars have already locked up the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft, and with it, the chance to select Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence.

But the Jags might also be looking for a new head coach after Sunday’s season finale, and they could be going after a big name from the college ranks to fill that position, as well.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that if the Jags indeed decide to part ways with head coach Doug Marrone after the 2020 season, former Ohio State and Florida head coach Urban Meyer could be their top target to replace him:

Meyer, who hasn’t coached since 2018 and is currently a college football analyst for Fox Sports, would be an intriguing choice for the Jaguars, to say the least. While he certainly enjoyed his share of success at the college level, Meyer has no NFL coaching experience.

The fact that the Jags won’t just have the No. 1 overall pick, but also the most cap space in the league this offseason, as well as five picks in the first two rounds of this year’s draft, could certainly be an attractive situation if Meyer indeed wants to consider ending his retirement.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
