Jaguars named perfect for intriguing Free-Agent wide receiver
The Jacksonville Jaguars enter the offseason with an abundance of roster needs and over $56 million in projected cap space. This combination indicates that the Jaguars are active in free agency, especially since they were recently named the ideal candidate for wide receiver Christian Kirk.
Kirk is yet to break the 1,000 yard mark as a pro, but he led the Arizona Cardinals in receptions (77) and receiving yards (982) last year. He shone in the lunge position, finishing with a career-high 74.8% catch percentage, and consistently making unexpected catches in traffic.
Securing another offensive weapon for young quarterback Trevor Lawrence is never a bad idea. The Jaguars averaged just 10.2 yards per catch in 2021 and had the fewest receiving touchdowns in the NFL (12). Meanwhile, Kirk has tallied at least five scores in each of the past two seasons.
A class of free agents led by Chris Godwin and Allen Robinson should allow Kirk to fly under the radar a bit price-wise. While he may not be the big name Jacksonville fans are hoping for, he’s still a dependable wide receiver who can take on a huge workload if needed.
The Jaguars enter the 2022 season hoping to post a winning record and make the playoffs for the first time since 2017. It won’t be an easy task, however.
For now, Jacksonville remains a long way from winning Super Bowl 57 with odds set at +10,000, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
