JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Jaguars have extended OL Tyler Shatley's contract, the team announced today.
Shatley, 6-3, 305, has appeared in 111 games and made 33 starts during his eight-year career in Jacksonville. He was one of three undrafted rookies to make the opening day roster in 2014 and has played in all the team's regular-season games during five seasons, including in 2021.
