The Jacksonville Jaguars got some tough news when it was learned that one of their top pass catchers, Allen Robinson, would be taking his talents to the Chicago Bears. But they almost immediately bounced back by agreeing to terms with former Indianapolis Colts speedy wideout Donte Moncrief.

Following comes from Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Moncrief spent four years with the Colts often as the second option alongside T.Y. Hilton. The 24-year-old is coming off a down year, recording just 26 receptions for 391 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games for the Indianapolis Colts who were without Andrew Luck all season. His breakout campaign came in 2015 when he finished with 64 receptions for 733 yards and six touchdowns as one of the top targets for Luck. In 2016 he only played nine games due to injury.

The Jaguars continue to restructure their offense around newly re-signed quarterback Blake Bortles. Earlier in the day, they agreed to terms with guard Andrew Nowell to make him the highest paid guard in the league. Now we shall see if they retain Allen Hurns or go in another direction.
