Jacksonville Jaguars: 3 options at right tackle ahead of free agency
Mike Remmers could provide depth to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
If you watched Super Bowl 55, you might’ve seen Kansas City Chiefs right tackle Mike Remmers struggle to stop the Tampa Bay Buccaneers pass rush. However, there’s more to him than just one bad game, as he has started 88 games over the last nine years.
After going undrafted in 2012, Remmers signed with the Denver Broncos and spent time with the Bucs, the Los Angeles Chargers, the Carolina Panthers, the Minnesota Vikings, and the New York Giants before joining the Chiefs last offseason. He’s scheduled to hit the open market once again and should have a few suitors in free agency.
Last season, Remmers a career-high 72.3 Pro Football Focus overall grade and has never gotten a pass-blocking grade below 67.7. At this point of his career, the Oregon State product may be better suited in a reserve role but could start at right tackle in case Jawaan Taylor struggles or misses time with injuries.
PFF projects that Remmers will get a two-year $10 million contract in free agency but the final amount may be lower, as teams will be working with a limited cap floor this season. If they Jaguars don’t want to invest much in the position but still want to have solid depth, Remmers should be at the top of their free-agent list.
