The Jaguars announced they re-signed offensive lineman Tyler Shatley on Friday.

Shatley, 27, visited the Vikings but elected to return to Jacksonville.

He has spent his entire career in Jacksonville, having signed as an undrafted free agent in 2014.

Shatley has appeared in 60 games with 15 starts, playing center and left guard. He was active for all 16 regular-season games each of the past three seasons.

Last season, Shatley started a career-high seven games, taking over at center after starter Brandon Linder injured his knee.

The Jaguars have nine offensive linemen on their roster, including four Week One starters from last season in left tackle Cam Robinson, left guard Andrew Norwell, Linder and right guard A.J. Cann. Right tackle Will Richardson, right tackle Cedric Ogbuehi, center K.C. McDermott and guard Brandon Thomas also are under contract for 2019.

  1. At least one offensive lineman played the entire season on the Jags O-Line. You can’t blame them for wanting him back … He may have been the only lineman to earn his checks when all was said, and done.

  2. He’s was only testing the water, to secure the contract he really wanted. Sometimes a team goes crazy for a “need position,” and he had to play those odds. You never know. It could happen.

    The Vikings were wise to leave this one alone, and I think their offensive line is at least as good as Green Bay’s. Neither are impressive, in my opinion. LeFleur plans to run more? That’s something wholly different than what a lot of these guys have grown accustomed to. Good luck. I’ll love it when I see it…….if I see it.

    While I agree the Packers O-line needs attention (and I hope they use their #12 pick on the best lineman available), Bakhtiari alone elevates Green Bay’s line above what the Vikings currently have. And Linsley is a solid center, too.

  4. The Vikings have almost nothing left under the cap to sign Shatley or anyone else for that matter. Maybe Shatley has family in the Twin Cities area or a close friend but business-wise, there is no legitimate reason for him to be visiting the Vikings unless he was willing to take a huge pay cut and eliminate all hopes of ever winning a Superbowl.

  5. Wow – they “owners” must have started happy hour early today. Lot of concern over a guy the Vikings were looking at. But then again the 6 win packers are allegedly the team to beat.

    You’re right about that. Bakhtiari is a monster. Better than anyone we have on Oline
