Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that Agnew has agreed to a contract with the Jaguars. It’s a three-year deal that can be worth a maximum value of $21 million. Bevell was hired as the Jacksonville offensive coordinator after closing out last season as the Lions’ interim head coach.
Last season was Agnew’s first as a wideout. He had been a defensive back in his first three seasons, although his primary role for the Lions was always as a kick returner.
Agnew returned 14 punts for 178 yards and a touchdown last season and averaged 28 yards per kickoff return. He has four career punt return touchdowns and one kickoff return touchdown.
