The Jacksonville Jaguars also need to add depth at tight end.
When you think of the Las Vegas Raiders’ tight ends, surely Darren Waller comes to mind but he won’t be available. Instead, the Jaguars could target Darren Carrier, who is scheduled to become a free agent. The Beloit standout won’t rack up a high amount of passes nor stretch the field. In fact, he caught just one reception for 14 yards and no touchdowns in 2020. Nevertheless, he could provide solid depth in Jacksonville’s tight end room.
The Jags must prioritize the tight end position this offseason and Tyler Eifert won’t be the only player they need to replace, as Jame O’Shaughnessy is also set to hit the open market. They could target Carrier, who has never caught more than 17 receptions over his nine-year career but is an outstanding blocker and add another tight end early in the draft.
Carrier signed with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent in 2012 but was waived and later claimed by the Philadelphia Eagles later in the same year. He spent the season on the Eagles’ practice squad and was released in 2013. He spent time with the San Francisco 49ers, the Washington Football Team, and the Los Angeles Rams before returning to the Raiders in 2018.
