The Jaguars held onto left tackle Cam Robinson with a franchise tag and they’re set to add a new starter to their offensive line in free agency.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Brandon Scherff intends to sign with the Jaguars once the new league year opens on Wednesday. Scherff was No. 13 on PFT’s list of the top free agents in the league.

The move boosts the offensive line in front of quarterback Trevor Lawrence and may be further sign that the Jaguars will be looking to bolster their defense with the first overall pick in the draft.

Scherff received the franchise tag from Washington in each of the last two seasons, but that was cost-prohibitive this offseason and the Commanders will now have to look for a new right guard. The Jaguars have both of their starting guards from last season — Andrew Norwell and A.J. Cann — set for free agency, so they’ll also likely be looking for more help up front in Doug Pederson‘s first year as their head coach.

  1. Washington fan here. He’s not worth it. He’s a good guard wanting elite money and he’s injury prone.

  2. With this injury history, the Jags should get about 8 games out of him this season.

  3. Good we should never franchised tag him again he to injury prone he will play about 8 games for the jags

  4. Games played the last 4 years:

    2018- 8 out of 16
    2019- 11 out of 16
    2020- 13 out of 16
    2021- 11 out of 17

    Not worth it when you know you’re gonna need to keep/find another starting caliber guard for the season.

  5. Injury prone or not….do you notice NO ONE stays with Washington? “Our culture is damn good”.

  6. When he is healthy no guard comes close to this guy. He can block Aaron Donald 1v1, pancakes average players, and delivers kill shots on anyone around if he isnt occupied. Hes nasty and powerful, but plays clean. There is a reason nobody goes after him after the whistle blows. Probably cant go a full season at this point, but when he is on the field he will earn his paycheck. Sad he didnt want to stay in DC but who can blame him.
