Jacksonville Jaguars keep WR Marqise Lee with four-year deal

Jacksonville Jaguars keep WR Marqise Lee with four-year deal

Former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Donte Moncrief intends to sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter, as the team tries to replace Allen Robinson.

The terms of Moncrief's deal have yet to be released.

Earlier Tuesday, Jacksonville wideout Allen Robinson agreed to a three-year free-agent contract with the Chicago Bears, making the Lee signing paramount. And with Robinson out for basically all of last season, he led the team with 56 catches and was second to Keelan Cole with 702 yards.




The Jaguars suffered a rash of injuries at receiver previous year that held them to bottom-16 numbers in both receiving yards and touchdowns.

The former second-round pick out of USC has 171 catches for 2,166 yards and eight scores through four National Football League seasons. Lee earned seven receptions for 69 yards in three playoff games. His output was negatively affected by the ongoing shoulder problems for Colts starting quarterback Andrew Luck; with Luck sidelined for all of 2017, Moncrief totaled just 26 catches for 391 yards and two scores.

The Colts drafted Moncrief in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft and while many were hoping his skills would turn him into an asset on the offensive side of the ball, he battled injuries and inconsistent play through the latter half of his time in Indianapolis.
