Jaguars Decide On Top Defensive Player's Contract
According to NFL Network insider Mike Garafolo, the Jacksonville Jaguars and star defensive tackle Roy Robertson-Harris have reached an agreement on a three-year, $30 million deal increase.
Two seasons ago, Robertson-Harris joined the Jags as a free agency and established himself as a reliable member of the team.
In 2022, Robertson-Harris recorded a career-high 45 stops, 3.0 sacks, and 12 quarterback hits in 17 starts, making it his finest NFL season to date.
The defensive tackle, who is 29 years old, was a crucial member of the Jags team that made it to the postseason this past season.
Out of UTEP, Robertson-Harris entered the NFL in 2016 as an undrafted free agent. Before signing with Jacksonville in 2021, he spent the first four seasons of his NFL tenure with the Chicago Bears.
The Jaguars released more than $10 million in cap room earlier today by restructuring the deal of linebacker Foye Oluokun, allowing them to make decisions like this one for Robertson-Harris.
Along with Josh Allen, Devin Lloyd, and Travon Walker, the Jaguars' defensive line will be stronger if Robertson-Harris can be stopped.
