Scouting the enemy: 3 Texans FAs Jacksonville Jaguars should target
Will Fuller can solidify the Jacksonville Jaguars’ wide receiver group.
Will Fuller V is going to be one of the most coveted free agents this season and could be an unnecessary luxury the Jaguars’ may be better off without. However, if they are serious about turning things around, they need to shoot for the moon and get as many playmakers as they could get.
Even if Jacksonville ends up bringing back wide receiver Keelan Cole, they should have enough cap space to agree to Fuller’s contract demands. After all, he was one of the few difference-makers the Texans had in 2020, and signing him could considerably weaken a division rival and solidify the Jaguars’ wide receiver unit at the same time.
Fuller is a former first-round selection that hadn’t been able to break out until this past season, when he hauled in 53 receptions for 879 yards and eight touchdowns. Moreover, he showed he could be a deep threat and averaged 16.6 yards per catch.
On the other hand, signing the wide receiver comes with injury red flags, as he has never played in a full season and has missed 25 games in the last four years. It will be up to the Jaguars’ brass to assess the risk of signing Fuller.
