OL - JAC
Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Jaguars are placing the franchise tag on OT Cam Robinson.
Robinson entered free agency as one of the best available tackles in a very weak class. Now that the Jaguars have tagged him it will likely give him a $13 to $14.5 million cap hit. The move comes at a bit of a surprise, but makes sense given the Jaguars will likely need to protect presumed number one overall pick, Trevor Lawrence at QB.
Jacksonville Jaguars LT Cam Robinson underwent an MRI that revealed no major damage to his injured knee.
Robinson suffered the injury Sunday vs. Cincinnati and the Jags will continue to monitor his progress moving forward.
The Jaguars moved up one spot in order to select offensive tackle Cam Robinson with the No. 34 selection in the NFL Draft.
This was a great move on the Jaguars part, as Robinson projects to play the all-important left tackle position in the NFL. Not only will he help protect Blake Bortles' (or whatever quarterback is out there) back, but he'll also help create holes for newly acquired Leonard Fournette in the run game. The Seahawks may regret moving back and allowing them to take Robinson off the board.
