Earlier this week, the Jacksonville Jaguars received some tough news about one of the team's wide receivers.
Jamal Agnew, who had been becoming a larger part of the offense every week, suffered a season-ending injury. Agnew was placed on injured reserve on Monday after he suffered a season-ending hip injury against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
He finished the season this season with 229 yards and one touchdown on 24 receptions. Unfortunately, he finally stepped into a significant role before the injury occurred.
With Agnew gone for the season, the Jaguars reportedly made a significant move to bolster the wide receiver corps. According to a report from NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Jaguars are signing veteran wideout Jaydon Mickens.
Mickens spent the last few years as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He did it all for the Buccaneers, playing both wide receiver and acting as a special teams ace.
He and Agnew have a similar skillset, so it's possible he slides into a significant role in the offense.
Next up for Jacksonville is a contest against the Atlanta Faclons.
