The Jaguars are re-signing WR Marqis Lee to a four-year, $38 million deal. Lee battled injuries in his first two season but worked his way up to become the team's No. 2 receiver in 2016. Hwe is, however, prone to drops.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Jaguars are giving WR Marqise Lee a four-year deal with a max value of $38 million and $18 million guaranteed. So if Lee were to hit the max value it'd be $9.5 million per year -- $4.5 million per year less than what Chicago is giving Allen Robinson. Lee (53) actually has played in more games than Robinson (42) over the past four seasons.

Why did the Jaguars need to add G Andrew Norwell? The team averaged 51.3 yards rushing less per game in Weeks 12-17 than it did in Weeks 1-11. Coach Doug Marrone said their inefficiency on the ground in the fourth quarter was one of reasons Jaguars couldn't hold the lead in the AFC Championship game.

According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, wide receiver Allen Robinson intends to sign with the Bears on a three-year, $42 million deal when free agency opens. Robinson tore his ACL at the start of the 2017 season, but his previous tape showcases the route running skills, red zone ability and catch radius. He's a technician with clean footwork. That's a major upgrade for quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, and Robinson is a fit in Matt Nagy's west coast route tree. Smart move by the Bears to land a proven receiver who will only be 25-years-old at the start of the season.
