The Jacksonville Jaguars quickly made some moves in the free-agent market by acquiring Arizona Cardinals’ wide receiver Christian Kirk and signing him to a four-year, $84 million deal, as per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The 25-year-old Kirk had 77 receptions for 984 yards and five touchdowns in 17 games for the Cardinals last season.

In this free-agent market, the Jaguars have the second most cap space available ($56 million), and GM Trent Baalke has expressed his intention to be “very aggressive” in free agency and Kirk’s trade is believed to be just the beginning.

In addition to Kirk, Jacksonville has also agreed to terms with several other players, including five-time Pro Bowl guard Brandon Scherff, linebacker Foye Oluokun, and defensive tackle Folorunso Fatukasi, as per ESPN.

Schefter and fellow ESPN Insider Jeremy Fowler reported New York Giants tight end Evan Engram is set to sign a one-year, fully guaranteed $9 million deal as well with the Jaguars that could potentially go to $10 million with incentives.

Last year, Jacksonville had a rocky season that resulted in a league-worst 3–14 record and the sacking of head coach Urban Meyer.

Doug Pedersen came in and the Jaguars hope the 2021 No. 1 pick, quarterback Trevor Lawrence, could take a big step forward in the upcoming season.
