Veteran newcomer on Jaguars roster No. 2 – Wide receiver Phillip Dorsett

The Jaguars had a plethora of wide receiver options earlier this year. Nevertheless, they still went on to sign Marvin Jones Jr., Jamal Agnew, and Phillip Dorsett II in free agency. They then took Jalen Camp in the sixth round of this year’s selection and signed Josh Imatorbhebhe as an undrafted free agent. They will join a crowded wide receiver corps and not all of them will be with the team by the time The Turk finishes his job.

Jones has a roster spot guaranteed. He will be in the starting lineup alongside DJ Chark Jr. and Laviska Shenault Jr. Agnew will mainly play on special teams and will handle return duties so he’s also a lock to make the team. On the other hand, sophomore Collin Johnson will compete for playing time and Camp could become the coaching staff’s newest developmental project. Finally, Imatorbhebhe is a candidate for the practice squad.

Dorsett could end up on the outside looking in. He may need to challenge Johnson to the number four wide receiver job and could be given the pink slip if the Jaguars believe Camp has more upside. Although Dorsett was a first-round draft pick, his NFL career has never really taken off. The Miami product has already reached his ceiling and is a backup at this point of his career. The Jags could release him before the season opener without incurring a dead cap hit. In fact, they could save $850,000.
