The Jaguars have re-signed tight end James O’Shaughnessy, according to a team announcement. O’Shaughnessy, 27, set new career highs with 24 catches for 214 yards last season and he could be in for a larger role this season.
The Jaguars currently have four tight ends on the roster in O’Shaughnessy, Geoff Swaim, Ben Koyack, and Pharoah McKever. More TE help could be on the way, but for now, O’Shaughnessy seems primed for a decent chunk of playing time.
Before re-signing with the Jags, O’Shaughnessy paid a visit to the Steelers, where he would have backed up starter Vance McDonald. The Steelers will have to find their own backup TE elsewhere, either in these later stages of free agency or in next month’s draft.
