Pernell McPhee shared a sack of Jacksonville Jaguars rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert with inside linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo, but the rookie defensive end was thrilled to make a play before about 25 family members in attendance at Everbank Field Monday night.
“It was real special,” recalled McPhee, who played before, among others, his mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. “It was an enjoyable moment because that’s what I wanted. I wanted to get a full sack, but it is what it is. I was really happy and enjoyed the moment.”
