July 13, 2019

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Former CB Aaron Beasley has been named
No. 20 on the Jaguars All-25, the club announced today. Jaguars All-25
presented by Sharpie is a collection of the top 25 non-active players
in franchise history, as voted on by members of the local media. The
Jaguars’ silver celebration kicked off in mid-March with the start of
the new league year and the unveiling of the team’s 25th season
commemorative logo designed to embody the spirit of DUUUVAL. 
Beasley, 6-0, 205, was originally selected in the third round (63rd
overall) of the 1996 NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He played
in 76 games (71 starts) for Jacksonville from 1996-2001, amassing
278 tackles and 15 INTs. In 1999, Beasley posted six INTs, tying for
the second-most in a season in franchise history. Beasley’s six INTs
in 1999 were tied for the sixth-most in the NFL and he started all
16 games for the Jaguars, helping Jacksonville record a league-leading
14 victories. Beasley’s 15 career INTs stand as the second-most in
franchise history and his 93-yard INT return for a TD vs. San Francisco
on Sept. 12, 1999 is the longest INT return in franchise history. “As
soon as I got here, Aaron Beasley was making plays,” said Cole Pepper,
a WJXT sports anchor and All-25 voter. “Interceptions, big plays at
big times. Some guys are really good at coverage. Some guys are big
hitters and some guys, the ball just finds them. That was the thing
with Beasley. The ball always found him, and he always found the
ball.” Beasley, who attended West Virginia, was inducted into the
WVU Sports Hall of Fame in 2009.  For more information on Jaguars
