Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan will not attempt to move his franchise to the recently vacated St. Louis market, reports Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch

In the wake of the news that the NFL owners had voted to move the St. Louis Rams to Los Angeles on Tuesday, Thomas asked Khan about the possibility of his team replacing the Rams in Missouri. Khan said that he has no interest in that idea.

The Jaguars franchise, which is located in the 47th largest market in the United States according to Neilsen, has been rumored as a candidate for relocation for a number of years. Those talks again started to pick up when the Rams relocation began to look more like a reality. 

Khan had actually attempted to purchase the Rams in 2010, before Stan Kroenke bought the shares vacated by former majority owners Chip Rosenbloom and Lucia Rodriguez. 

Khan eventually purchased the Jaguars in November of 2011.
