FRIDAY, 11:18am: Harbor’s two-year deal is worth $3MM, with a $1.35MM guaranteed base in 2014 to go along with a $100K roster bonus and a $50K workout bonus, tweets Tom Pelissero of USA Today.
THURSDAY, 12:03pm: The Jaguars agreed to terms with tight end Clay Harbor on a two-year deal, a source tells Ian Rapoport of NFL Network (on Twitter). Harbor, 27 in July, made seven starts at tight end in his first season with Jacksonville.
The unrestricted free agent hauled in 24 catches for 292 yards last year and was on the field for all 16 regular season games. Prior to 2013, Harbor spent three years with the Eagles where he saw inconsistent playing time at TE with some fullback duty mixed in. Financial terms of the deal aren’t yet known for the former Missouri State standout, but he earned a minimum salary of $630K last season with the Jags, so another minimum deal wouldn’t be a surprise. While Harbor wasn’t quite the focal point of the Jaguars’ passing attack, he did show that he could be a useful offensive weapon with good speed for the position.
In addition to Harbor and Cameron Bradfield, the Jaguars have also re-signed unrestricted free agent Sam Young, according to John Oehser of Jaguars.com (on Twitter). The 6’8″, 316 pound bruiser played mostly on special teams in 2013.
