In what has now become an annual post, the Jaguars have re-signed cornerback Tre Herndon to one-year contract, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN. The new deal is reportedly worth $2.6MM, guaranteed, his highest deal yet with the team.
A former undrafted free agent out of Vanderbilt in 2018, Herndon has spent all of the first five years of his career in Jacksonville. His role with the team over the years has varied greatly. His status has diminished from a starting position in the 2019 and 2020 seasons to a backup role in the past two years.
In the 2021 and 2022 seasons, Herdon started in three games, but that was outweighed a bit by the seven games in which he only appeared on special teams.
The position group that Herndon returns to will likely be led by Tyson Campbell and Darious Williams. Herndon will likely be competing with Montaric Brown for the next position on the depth chart after the release of former starter Shaquill Griffin.
