The Jacksonville Jaguars' $230million spending spree grabbed the headlines on the first day of the legal tampering period as the franchise sought to turn their fortunes around by agreeing deals with six significant free agents.
The Jaguars, who are 7/1 to win the AFC South next season, are beefing up their offensive line with the addition of Pro Bowl guard Brandon Scherff, while adding three other playmaking options on offense for last year's first overall draft pick Trevor Lawrence.
Scherff, who was named a first-team All-Pro in 2020, was the priority signing for the Jaguars, who were in desperate need of reinforcements to shore up an offensive line that allowed 32 sacks of their rookie quarterback in 2021.
The 30-year-old will arrive from Washington on a three-year, $49.5m deal with $30m guaranteed, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
He wasn't necessarily the most eye-popping move the Jaguars - who hold the first overall pick in this year's draft after finishing 3-14 last season - made as many were stunned by the deal they offered wide receiver Christian Kirk.
The 25-year-old Arizona Cardinals wideout has agreed a four-year deal worth $72m with another $12m available in incentives.
New York Giants tight end Evan Ingram and Las Vegas Raiders wideout Zay Jones are also heading to Duval County, with Jones' remuneration of up to $30m with $24m guaranteed also surprisingly large for a possession receiver.
On the other side of the ball, the Jaguars are adding Atlanta Falcons linebacker Foye Oluokun and New York Jets defensive tackle Foley Fatukasi.
Oluokun earned just over $2m in 2021, but joins on a three-year deal with an average annual salary of $15m, while the bottom line of Fatukasi's payslip will also increase significantly to around $10m annually over the next three years.
