The Jaguars were reported to be interested in signing Engram to a long-term deal, and this will buy them the time to do that. Engram had a career year in most statistical categories, and the Jaguars are committing to surrounding their young QB Trevor Lawrence with as much receiving talent as possible. Engram already has two seasons as a top-12 TE in fantasy in his career.
