The Jaguars expect to have wide receiver Justin Blackmon back with the team when his suspension comes to a close, but the team isn’t sure when that will happen so they’re adding to their wide receiving corps in free agency.
Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times Union reports that the Jags have signed wide receiver Tandon Doss. Doss was not tendered as a restricted free agent by the Ravens, leaving him free to sign with any team in the league without Baltimore having the chance to match the offer or receive draft pick compensation.
Doss saw the most extensive offensive playing time of his three-year career during the 2013 season, starting twice and catching 19 passes for 305 yards for a Ravens team that struggled to find a consistent option across from Torrey Smith all year long. Doss also was a frequent participant on special teams in Baltimore.
The Jaguars have Cecil Shorts, Ace Sanders, Mike Brown, Kerry Taylor and Stephen Burton at receiver to go with Doss and Blackmon. That should make for a spirited, if not big name, competition for snaps at receiver over the rest of the offseason.
