WR Marqise Lee returning to Jags

WR Marqise Lee returning to Jags”

Moncrief will theoretically replace Allen Robinson, who reportedly signed with the Chicago Bears, but he joins a crowded wide receiver group in Jacksonville that now includes Marqise Lee, Allen Hurns, Dede Westbrook, and Keelan Cole. The Jaguars also signed second-year wide receiver Shane Wynn, the team announced.

Moncrief, a third-round pick of the Colts in 2014, appeared in 53 games with 27 starts over his past four seasons.

The 24-year-old is coming off a down year in which he registered just 26 receptions for 391 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games for the Indianapolis Colts.

The terms of Moncrief's deal have yet to be released.

During his four-year career, Moncrief has racked up 152 grabs for 1,875 yards and 18 scores. He once raved about receivers coach Keenan McCardell practicing despite a separated shoulder during his first tenure with the Jacksonville Jaguars, and he hoped McCardell would make an impact in that area on the team's receivers.

Moncrief's true potential seems mostly untapped, thanks in part to Luck's prolonged absence and injury. However, Lee will continue to play a major role in the offense moving forward as a consistent receiving target for quarterback Blake Bortles.
