JACKSONVILLE – Cam Robinson's long-term extension is done.
Robinson, the Jaguars' starting left tackle since 2017, has signed a long-term contract with the team. The Jaguars announced the agreement/signing on Wednesday, a day before the 2022 NFL Draft.
Robinson played last season on the NFL's franchise tag, and the team had placed the tag on him for a second consecutive year in March. That meant he was scheduled to play the 2022 season on a one-year contract.
The Jaguars instead reached a long-term contract agreement with a player they selected in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft from the University of Alabama. Robinson has started 61 games in five seasons, including 14 last season.
Robinson's extension is the Jaguars' second major move addressing the offensive line in the last two months, with five-time Pro Bowl guard Brandon Scherff signing as an unrestricted free agent from the Washington Commanders in March. Scherff is expected to play right guard.
Brandon Linder, the Jaguars' starting center since 2013, retired this offseason; the team re-signed longtime reserve center Tyler Shatley shortly before the start of the 2022 League Year in March. Second-year veteran Walker Little and fourth-year veteran Jawaan Taylor are expected to compete at right tackle, with third-year veteran Ben Bartch having started 11 games at right guard last season.
