The life and times of Jaxson De Ville, the Jaguars' lewd, madcap mascot

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

After 19 years, Jacksonville Jaguars mascot Jaxson De Ville is retiring. It's heartbreaking, but probably for the best. Jaxson was the star of the franchise for a long time, but he was also unhinged and deeply self-destructive, and with each passing season, the chances increased of one of his dangerous, stripped-to-the-fur stunts leading to his death or arrest in the name of Duval. Let us recount the life and times of a mascot legend:
