Jacksonville Jaguars steal key defense from San Francisco 49ers ahead of NFL 2024

Updated: Apr 26

The Free Agency of the National Football League (NFL) has had a busy start to its actions, with different signatures that have broken the market. The Jacksonville Jaguars had lost more than they had gained so far, but a signing can get their offseason back on track.

Those from the north of the State of Florida have reached an agreement with defensive lineman Arik Armstead, who was released last week by the San Francisco 49ers after refusing to take a reduction in his salary (he was stipulated to earn close to USD 17 million in 2024).

As reported by Ian Rapoport, Armstead, who will leave the Niners for the first time in his career, and the Jags reached a contractual agreement for 3 seasons and USD 51 million. The arrival of the University of Oregon graduate gives Jacksonville experience and performance in the forward part of its defense.

Arik Armstead, one more reinforcement for Jacksonville Jaguars

Armstead started 97 of the 116 regular season games played with the 49ers, leaving the organization with 33.5 quarterback sacks, 88 QB hits and 43 tackles for loss. Jacksonville hopes Armstead can offer similar production and help turn its mid-level defense into a Super Bowl-caliber unit.

The Jaguars have moved a lot thinking precisely about that objective, and although they have the arrival of Mac Jones as a backup quarterback as a movement with reflectors, receivers Gabe Davis and Devin Duvernay, center Mitch Morse have also arrived during Free Agency and safety Darnell Savage.
