The Jaguars continue to be busy in the opening hours of the free agency negotiating window.

NFL Media reports that the team intends to sign wide receiver Christian Kirk when the new league year opens on Wednesday. The terms of the deal are not known at this time.

Kirk would be a big addition to the receiving corps as the Jaguars try to build a better offense around quarterback Trevor Lawrence in head coach Doug Pederson‘s first season with the team. Kirk caught 77 passes for 982 yards and five touchdowns with the Cardinals during the 2021 season.

The Jaguars have also reached agreements with guard Brandon Scherff, defensive lineman Folorunso Fatukasi, and linebacker Foye Oluokun since the negotiating window opened at noon on Monday.

UPDATE 3:19 p.m. ET: According to multiple reports, it is a four-year deal for Kirk worth at least $72 million and a maximum value of $84 million.

  1. They should make him a team captain so the NFL can finally have a real Captain Kirk.

  2. Jaguars wayyyyy over paid for a #3WR. Looking at the deal he got no wonder AZ let him walk. Dude is purely a slot WR, can’t play on the outside. Well he can he just can’t produce outside.

  3. Alot of money and faith in a guy that’s been more hype than production since coming out of college.

  4. Is this guy really a no. 1 wideout? If not, that’s a horrible contract for a high end no. 2

  5. Kirk was a decent #2 for the Cardinals when he was healthy, but $20M for a guy who hasn’t had a 1000 yard season is pretty amazing. Good for him though.

  6. That’s a lot of money for a guy who has never had a 100 catch season or a 1,000 yard season.

  7. He will have 1000 yard season with Trevor who is better than Kyler. Good QB can make a #2 receiver look like a #1 receiver.

  8. yea….concur with the majority. Huge huge over pay. This is the type contract that sets up the balance of the market for a lot of over valuing by agents.

  9. Probably could have signed Allen Robinson for far less and gotten more production. This is a huge over pay for a #2 or #3 receiver. Trent Baalke really is a genius ! NOT !!

  10. Thank you Christian enjoy your money, we wish you the best. Jacksonville WTF are you doing paying for a #3, DID YOU EVEN WATCH THE PLAYOFF GAME OR THE CARDS WITHOUT HOPKINS? Kirk killed us with that drop on Christmas should’ve been 7-0. This here is why bad teams continue to suck, over their heads with no real free agency strategy, let’s just throw money around and hope for the best smh
