Jacksonville agreed to deals to bring in Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Christian Kirk, longtime Washington Commanders guard Brandon Scherff, Atlanta Falcons star linebacker Foye Oluokun and New York Jets defensive tackle Folorunso Fatukasi.
Kirk had a career-high 982 receiving yards and five touchdowns last season in Arizona, who first took him with the No. 47 overall pick in 2018. It’s unclear what his deal looks like with Jacksonville, but it’s reportedly “large.”
Kirk will undoubtedly bolster a position where the Jaguars struggled last season and will provide former No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence with a very solid target each week after his rough rookie season.Scherff has spent the last seven seasons with Washington, who drafted him with the No. 5 overall pick in 2015 out of Iowa. The five-time Pro Bowler hasn’t played a full season since 2016, but he’s undoubtedly become one of the best offensive lineman in the league. Scherff has missed 22 total games over the last four season — including six last year both due to COVID-19 and a left knee injury.metasports
