According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Jacksonville Jaguars are expected to franchise tag OT Cam Robinson.
A surprise: The #Jaguars are expected to franchise tag OT Cam Robinson, locking in their valuable OL for 2021 and keeping him from the free agent market. He was to be one of the top tackles available.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 9, 2021
Robinson, who was a second round pick in the 2017, had arguably his best season, playing in all 16 games for the first time in his career. Robinson allowed five sacks in the 2020 campaign, and registered a Pro Football Focus Grade of 61.7. Despite those numbers, Robinson was one of the lynchpins behind a rejuvenated run game that aided rookie RB James Robinson to over 1,000 yards from scrimmage.
With Trevor Lawrence expected to step in and start immediately as a rookie, retaining the offensive line is important, and the Jaguars took the first step in doing that.
