Allen Robinson is on his way to Chicago, but another Jaguars wide receiver will be staying in Jacksonville.

According to multiple reports, Marqise Lee will sign a new deal with the Jaguars ahead of the official start of free agency on Wednesday.

Lee joined Robinson as a second-round pick in 2014 and got off to a slower start than his teammate while missing nine games over his first two seasons. Lee’s productivity has picked up over the last two years, however, and he led the team with 56 catches during the 2017 season. He added seven catches for 69 yards in the postseason.

Dede Westbrook, Keelan Cole and Allen Hurns are also under contract at receiver for the Jaguars,

  1. Good move retaining this guy. Now get in Demarco Murray to sure up the run game. Also, they should look to trade for Dez…could use a small shifty receiver like that to gel with Bortels. Everyone is getting QBs…it’s like to bring in someone for the future after Bortles…someone like Oswellier.

  2. Lee is a perfect #2. If Westbrook develops as expected/hoped, Lee will remain in a perfect niche for himself and the entire passing game will excel. If Cole can continue to progress and earn time on the field, then they can lean on Hurns to restructure or be cut. He’s way overpaid for his role at this time. He’s not going to earn his $7 Million cap hit unless either or both of the young guys somehow bust, which isn’t likely.
