The Jacksonville Jaguars are re-signing veteran guard/center Tyler Shatley, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Jaguars’ guard Tyler Shatley, an undrafted free agent from 2014 who started 10 games last season and 25 during his seven seasons with the team, is re-signing a one-year deal with Jacksonville, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 12, 2021
Shatley played in all 16 games in 2020, including 10 starts across the interior offensive line. What makes Shatley so valuable is his versatility — he saw action at center, left guard and right guard last season, and started at least one game at each spot. Shatley played 642 snaps in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus, drawing just one penalty and allowing just two sacks. According to PFF, Shatley had an overall grade of 67.7.
Shatley originally signed with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent out of Clemson in 2014. He has since played in 94 games with 25 starts. Shatley has appeared in all 16 games in a season for the last five years in a row (2016 through 2020), and has started at least four games each season in that stretch, with the exception of 2019 (zero starts that year).
Shatley will now play under his third different head coach in Jacksonville — Gus Bradley, Doug Marrone and now Urban Meyer. He has served as one the Jaguars’ top depth players along the offensive line throughout his tenure.
