The Jacksonville Jaguars expect to use the franchise tag
The Jacksonville Jaguars plan to keep an important piece of the offense as they build their roster for next season. The Jaguars won a weak AFC South division in 2022 and parlayed their late-season winter winning streak into getting second-year quarterback Trevor Lawrence his first playoff win. The team will look to improve on that success next season.
To do that, the Jaguars want to keep a top target for Lawrence on the offense. According to Adam Schefter with ESPN, the Jaguars expect to apply the franchise tag to tight end Even Engram.
Jaguars are expected to place the franchise tag on TE Evan Engram, per source. The tight end franchise tag is $11.345 million.

The price for applying the franchise tag to a tight end in 2023 will be $11.345 million.
Engram is a former first-round pick by the New York Giants in 2017. He made the Pro Bowl in 2020. The Jaguars signed Engram to a one-year deal last offseason with $9 million. Engram played in all 17 games for the Jaguars in the regular season, where he had 766 yards receiving and four touchdown receptions.
