Report: Jaguars sign Ogbuehi

The Jaguars continue to dip into the free agency pool to fill voids along the offensive side of the football.

After having former Cincinnati Bengals offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi in for an official visit on Friday, the team has agreed to terms with the former first-round pick, as first reported by Brent Martineau of Action News Jax and ESPN 690.

Ogbuehi brings with him 25 career starts at right tackle in four seasons, as well as the label of a rather large first-round bust. The Jaguars obviously needed to add bodies to the position as the only current right tackle was second-year player Will Richardson, who spent the 2018 season on injured reserve.

The Jaguars have historically liked to fill holes in free agency at positions of need, in order to have versatility in the draft to not be forced to pick a specific position and while they’ve certainly added depth at tackle with this move, this in no way takes them out of the conversation for drafting an offensive tackle in round one.

Martineau’s report also stated that the Jaguars may look to add a pass catcher as well this weekend. Stay tuned.
