The Jacksonville Jaguars extend a defensive lineman
The Jacksonville Jaguars are keeping a vital piece of the defense for next season. The Jaguars are looking to build on their success in 2022. The team was a score from tying the eventual Super Bowl-winning Kansas City Chiefs in the Divisional Round. The Jaguars’ defense, which ranked 12th in points given up in the last regular season, was a big reason for the team’s late run from Week 12–getting them into the postseason.
The Jaguars retained a starting defensive lineman from that group. According to Mike Garafolo with the NFL Network, the Jaguars extended Roy-Robertson Harris for seasons. The deal is worth $30 million.
