ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that TE Evan Engram "intends" to sign a 1-year, $9 million deal with the Jaguars. The money is reportedly guaranteed, with a chance to grow to $10 million via incentives. We'll see exactly how the receiving pieces fit in new HC Doug Pederson's offense. Engram brings a similar skill set to Jacksonville incumbent TE Dan Arnold, who played WR in college and was operating as a top target after arriving from Carolina in trade (before getting injured). Engram, a former 1st-round pick, should still beat Arnold on the talent front, though. The 2 of them plus free-agent addition Christian Kirk and Laviska Shenault sure seem to give Jacksonville a lot of slot-type pieces. We'll likely keep learning through training camp and the preseason just how to project this offense. The addition of passing-game pieces can only help QB Trevor Lawrence, though.

NFL Network reports that Jacksonville has agreed to terms with former Falcons LB Foye Oluokun. He figures to take over the MLB job for the Jaguars, who still have OLB Myles Jack under contract through 2023. Oluokun emerged as a top IDP option in 2021 after a 2020 breakthrough and now steps into a situation that has been terrific for LB tackle numbers.

NFL Network reports that the Jaguars are expected to sign WR Christian Kirk to a "large deal." Kirk posted career highs in receptions (77) and yards (982) last season, playing 3 more games than his previous high in that category. Kirk spent time both outside and in the slot in Arizona. It's not immediately clear how he and Laviska Shenault will fit together in the offense of new Jacksonville HC Doug Pederson. The money heading Kirk's way certainly positions him as the favorite to lead Jaguars wideouts, though. Marvin Jones also remains in the mix. We'll see what other moves Jacksonville makes at the position.

If you drafted Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault in 2021, then you know he let your fantasy football team down big time. But could things turn around in his 3rd year? "We're high on Laviska," GM Trent Baalke told reporters Tuesday in Indianapolis, ahead of the NFL Scouting Combine. "It's the coaches' job to get him the ball, but by no means has the ship sailed. I don't know where that idea would come from." Baalke is heading into his 3rd year as Jacksonville GM, so he was on staff when the Jags drafted Shenault. HC Doug Pederson, of course, heads into his 1st Jacksonville campaign. So we'll see what Pederson and his staff say about Shenault this offseason. We'll also see what else the team has at WR, with D.J. Chark and Laquon Treadwell facing free agency and Jamal Agnew coming off a hip injury (after his surprise emergence as a slot WR). Shenault is going in WR5-6 range in early best-ball drafting, which makes him a low-risk bet with upside.

Speaking on The Players Club Podcast, Jags RB Travis Etienne provided an update on his injured foot. Recall that he suffered a Lisfranc injury last preseason. “My foot is doing much better,” Etienne said. “Really just got back into the gym for the first time and I’m squatting for the first time this past week. So that’s been good and I’ve been running for a while now. I’m kind of getting to that 80% to 85% range.” Etienne should be fully healthy for the offseason program, where he’ll look to impress new HC Doug Pederson. James Robinson, meanwhile, might not return until training camp (or later) following a December Achilles’ tear. Etienne snagged 85 balls over his final 2 years at Clemson, so there's reason to believe he'll deliver as a PPR asset.

The Jaguars are hiring Doug Pederson as their next HC, according to multiple reports. Pederson, of course, spent 5 seasons at the helm in Philadelphia. He piloted the Eagles to a 13-3 record and Super Bowl victory in his 2nd season and finished with a 42-37-1 record (including a 4-11-1 final season). Philly's offenses ranked 14th or lower in yards in 4 of Pederson's 5 seasons and 16th or lower in scoring in 3 of 5 years. We'll see how he fills out the rest of the staff and what that staff has to say about the returning players. We'll also see whether Jacksonville retains free-agent WR D.J. Chark.

Jaguars RB Travis Etienne (Lisfranc) told reporters on Monday that he's been running in the pool and will resuming running on the field soon. He expects to be ready for the start of camp. Etienne underwent surgery on September 2 to repair the Lisfranc tear in his left foot. He was expected to be sidelined for 4 months, so it sounds like his rehab is on track. Etienne should be ready to roll for the start of the 2022 season. We can't say the same for RB James Robinson, who tore his left Achilles in late December.

The Jaguars on Friday placed CB Shaq Griffin on the COVID list. They also activated DE Josh Allen, LB Myles Jack and LB Damien Wilson, among others.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault has been activated from the COVID list. He should be back for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots but should not be in fantasy lineups.

The Jaguars on Monday placed TE Dan Arnold on the COVID list. He had been designated last week to return from IR. This likely will knock him out for Sunday's game in New England, even if his injured knee is ready. James O'Shaughnessy remains Jacksonville's #1 TE.

Jaguars RB James Robinson has a torn Achilles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That not only ends Robinson's 2021 season but also puts his status for the start of 2022 in question. We'll track his rehab this offseason. It looks like Dare Ogunbowale will close out the season as Jacksonville's lead back.

Jaguars RB James Robinson was carted to the locker room after suffering a non-contact left leg injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Jets. We'll update his status when we know more. Dare Ogunbowale has stepped in as Jacksonville's lead back.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that it's a torn Achilles' tendon for Robinson. That not only ends his season but potentially challenges his start to 2022. We'll see how he progresses through the offseason.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault has been placed on the COVID list. He'll miss Sunday's game vs. the Jets. Shenault has been a major disappointment this season but has still averaged 6.6 targets over the last 5 games. His absence is a slight boost for WR Marvin Jones, WR Laquon Treadwell and TE James O'Shaughnessy.

Jaguars DE Josh Allen has tested positive for COVID. That will knock him out for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault (shoulder, foot) did not practice on Wednesday. We'll see if he's able to get back on the practice field tomorrow, but hopefully Shenault isn't in your Week 16 fantasy plans.

Jaguars TE Dan Arnold (knee) has been designated to return from IR. He was expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his right knee suffered in Week 12, so we'd be surprised if he was ready to play vs. the Jets on Sunday. But we'll keep an eye on the situation.

Jaguars S Rayshawn Jenkins will miss the rest of the season after breaking his right ankle in Sunday’s loss to Houston. The replacement plan isn’t immediately clear. Daniel Thomas and rookie Andre Cisco both saw a big jump in playing time after Jenkins left Sunday. If they’ll be tag-teaming the fill-in role, then neither will make sense for IDP use

The Jaguars fired HC Urban Meyer. He didn't even last a year in Jacksonville. Meyer's performance was embarrassing both on and off the field. Darrell Bevell -- who has 15 years of experience as an OC -- will take over as interim HC. Meyer's departure can only be good news for Jacksonville's offense, although we still wouldn't go too crazy investing in Jaguars down the stretch.

Jaguars RB James Robinson (heel, knee) is not listed on the final injury report. He didn’t practice on Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday after being limited all last week. It’s unclear if that means Robinson is ready for a bigger role this weekend vs. the Titans. He’s averaged 12.3 carries and 4 targets over the last 4 games.

Jaguars RB James Robinson (heel, knee) did not practice on Thursday. Insider Mark Long reports that Robinson is expected to get Thursdays off the rest of the season as part of a "load management plan." That plan also seems to include scaling back Robinson's volume on game days. He's just a lower-end RB2 right now.
