Jacksonville Jaguars sign Jerry Porter (Updated)

NFL Network's Adam Schefter is reporting that Wide Receiver Jerry Porter is now a Jacksonville Jaguar after signing a 6 year 30 million dollar contract with 10 million in guaranteed money.

And there you go, the Front Office made a move at receiver, finally.  To be honest, Porter wasn't on my radar as a guy we'd go after, but it looks like the Jaguars were trying to buy a talented player that because of his recent history would be a little cheaper than the top tier guys.

Jack Del Rio: On Jerry Porter:

"We’re excited to have added Troy Williamson in a trade and Jerry Porter in the start of free agency here," said Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio about today’s transactions. "I’m very excited about adding Jerry. I think he’s an outstanding football player. There were a couple guys that we thought we would take an opportunity at in free agency and he was at the top of the list for us. I really think it was a great fit for us. He’s an explosive player. He’s had some big years. We think his best football is still ahead of him and we’re very excited to have him."

Jerry will be wearing number 84 for the Jaguars.

Of course, now I need to go to a ton of research and figure out what sort of player Jerry is and what he'll bring to Jacksonville.

Porter, clearly, is our number one receiver.  Reggie Williams number two.  Northcutt goes in the slot. Broussard/Williamson as the 4th guy/speedy threat.  Mike Walker as a backup/jar on shelf.

Matt Jones looks like the odd man out.
