With the likely arrival of Trevor Lawrence necessitating a good offensive line, the Jaguars aren’t letting offensive tackle Cam Robinson get away.

The Jaguars will put the franchise tag on Robinson, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Robinson was the No. 52 player on our list of the Top 100 free agents, and it’s a bit of a surprise that he’s getting the franchise tag. But the Jaguars don’t want to let him get away, especially knowing how important it will be to protect their rookie franchise quarterback.

The franchise tag for offensive tackles is expected to be about $14 million, and the Jaguars can easily afford that under their salary cap.

Robinson has played his entire four-year career with the Jaguars and started all 16 games last year.

  1. Dan Campbell would point to Robinson as an example of a player who should be happy to be tagged.

  2. Look I talk a ton about building through the offensive line but this move is a head scratcher. Robinson probably could have been had for two or three years for the amount they are paying him. Now if the plan is to keep him for this year and draft an OT with the Rams pick I could be on board. But if they think Robinson is a long term answer at the position I feel bad for Lawrence

  3. With such pedestrian performance, I’d figure they’d cut him. Tag him? He’s doing cartwheels.
