JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A person familiar with the situation says the Jacksonville Jaguars are going to play multiple home games in London beginning in 2013.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the NFL and the team are waiting to announce the deal Tuesday in Jacksonville.

New owner Shad Khan has made it clear he wants to play games overseas in hopes of increasing the team's brand globally. He even mentioned it during his introductory news conference last year.

The St. Louis Rams had been scheduled to play a home game in London in 2013 and 2014, but they pulled out last week, citing a need to focus on lease negotiations and ease fan discontent.
