Jaguars sign WR Tandon Doss

Doss led the NFL in yards per punt return during the 2013 season, including an 82-yard punt return touchdown.


Update: The contract details for Doss have been released by Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.

The Jaguars added a young playmaker to their receiving corps on Tuesday morning, inking former Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Tandon Doss to a deal, the team announced.

Doss, 24, was a fourth-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft of the Ravens, but never developed into the player they had in mind. Instead the 6'2, 201-pound receiver didn't catch his first pass with the team until his second season and finished his three seasons with the team with only 26 receptions for 428 yards and one touchdown.

He also contributed as a punt returner in his final season with the team, returning 23 punts for 359 yards and an 82-yard touchdown. While it was a limited sample size, the 15.6 yards per return for Doss led the NFL in 2013 and he was one of only 12 players to record a punt return touchdown on the year.

After signing with the team, Doss briefly spoke with some media members via phone:

The Jaguars will return Cecil Shorts III and Ace Sanders, among others, at wide receiver in 2014, although it's a group that lacks height. Only Stephen Williams, who has zero receptions since joining the Jaguars mid-season in 2013, will be listed as taller than Doss on the roster.
