The Jaguars are in desperate need of a solid tight end. The team hasn’t had a reliable tight end since Marcedes Lewis moved on.
The importance of the tight end position in the modern NFL cannot be stressed too much.
Per Cody Swartz of Bleacher Report, “Gradually, the tight end has evolved from a brute blocker to a speedy pass catcher. NFL teams nowadays actually prefer a guy who can stretch the field and play a major role in the passing game. Guys who are too big for safeties and too fast for linebackers—these players cause mismatch problems every time they step on the field.
