Jacksonville Jaguars continue to reshape wide receiver corp, will reportedly sign Donte Moncrief

INDIANAPOLIS, IN - NOVEMBER 12: Donte Moncrief /

The Jacksonville Jaguars quickly continue to add pass catchers with the reported addition of Donte Moncrief.

A day before free agency officially begins, the Jacksonville Jaguars are working feverishly in the wide receiver department. After letting Allen Robinson leave to Chicago, the team decided to re-sign Marqise Lee to a four-year deal.

But that has turned out not to be the only moves of the day at the position. The Jaguars will reportedly sign Donte Moncrief, formerly of the Indianapolis Colts.

The details of the deal expected to be made:

Moncrief will be entering his fifth season in 2018, and is only 24 years old. Moncrief currently has 152 career receptions, but has the potential to be a reliable outside receiver for the Jaguars. Unlike Marqise Lee, Moncrief’s size and attributes are drastically more similar to Allen Robinson, who the team has to replace.

The move doesn’t completely resolve Jacksonville’s issues at wideout, but is certainly a step in the right direction. While the money for Lee still feels excessive, pairing the re-signing with the addition of Moncrief is a solid move from the front office. The team will most likely now be able to not have to look earlier than the second round for a wide receiver selection in the draft.

Barring another addition, which would definitely be a surprise after Tuesday’s work, the wide receiver group will be comprised as the following: Moncrief, Lee, Dede Westbrook, Keelan Cole, Allen Hurns and a rookie selection. I still think there is a decent possibility that Hurns gets cut at some point, however.
