The Jaguars have signed a free agent running back, according to reports.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have agreed to terms with free agent running back Toby Gerhartaccording to a report by Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union.

It's a little bit of a surprise move, in that the Jaguars signed a free agent running back on the first day, but it appears to be a move that signals the end of the Maurice Jones-Drew era and it appears the Jaguars got him on a bit of a bargain deal.

Originally a second-round pick by the Minnesota Vikings in the 2010 NFL Draft, Gerhart was buried on the Vikings depth chart behind the best running back in the NFL in Adrian Peterson. He's touched the ball sparingly with the Vikings, but always seemed to show flashes of being an effective running back.

So far in his NFL career he has 1,305 yards for a career average of 4.5 yards per carry with five touchdowns. He's shown the ability to catch the ball out of the backfield as well.
