It wouldn’t hurt the Jacksonville Jaguars to add another wide receiver.

Out of all the needs the Jaguars have, the wide receiver position may be the least pressing one. In fact, it may be one of their most talented groups heading into the 2021 season. D.J. Chark Jr. played at a high level in spite of inconsistent quarterback play and rookie Laviska Shenault Jr. showed flashes of playmaking prowess.

On the other hand, Keelan Cole is set to hit the open market and may be one of the few free agents Jacksonville should consider signing. If they don’t bring the fourth-year wide receiver, they should consider signing Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Nelson Agholor, who will also become a free agent.

The Raiders used the 12th overall pick in 2020’s draft on Henry Ruggs III hoping he would become their number one wide receivers. Instead, the Alabama product had a quiet rookie season, and Agholor, who signed a one-year deal, ended up becoming their top wideout.

‘Nelly’ had a career-year for the ‘Silver and Black’ and hauled 48 receptions for 896 yards and eight touchdowns. Moreover, he displayed the ability to stretch the field and averaged 18.7 yards per reception, and could solidify the Jaguars’ wide receiver corps.
