The Jacksonville Jaguars are by no means the favorite to sign suspended wide receiver Antonio Brown, but they’re among the most likely to sign him, according to Bet Online.

So, should the Jaguars sign him? Let’s take a look!

The case for signing him

Brown is a playmaker and one of the most gifted wide receivers in the NFL. The Jaguars offense is — to put it mildly — devoid of playmakers and anyone you’d call the best at what they do. D.J. Chark is a talented player, but he’s about it on that side of the ball. If Brown is willing to sign a short term deal in hopes of using Jacksonville as a spring board to a long term contract, why not?

Jacksonville’s offense also doesn’t have a wide receiver currently on the roster that can stretch the field and test a secondary like Brown. Adding him completely changes their offense for the better and upgrades the weapons around Gardner Minshew.

The case for not signing him

In short, he’s unstable and unpredictable. And if he demands a larger pay day now as opposed to a short term springboard, it could jeopardize the chances that Jacksonville stays in a healthy situation cap-wise.

Oh yeah, and he tattled on Leonard Fournette and is suspended for the first eight games of the 2020 NFL season.

What do you think? Should the Jaguars go after Antonio Brown? Would he be a welcome playmaker addition? Or would he clash with the team and front office? Let us know in the comments below!
